Leeds five-year fix rated “outstanding”

Leeds Building Society’s latest five-year fixed rate mortgage has been rated “outstanding”.

Moneyfacts.co.uk has given the deal – with a best buy rate of 2.04% - its highest rating as the mortgage went into its best buy tables. The mortgage, available for purchase and remortgage, is available up to 65% LTV (loan to value) and comes with a fee of £999.

Leeds has also launched a number of remortgage only options at 1.99% up to 65% LTV and at 2.15% up to 75% LTV. Both 5 year deals come with a free valuation and £750 cashback.

 “In addition to best buy rates, our two, three and five year fixes include a choice of fee and incentive combinations so borrowers can have the features which best suit their individual circumstances,” said Jaedon Green, Leeds Building Society’s Director of Product & Distribution.

“These deals provide great opportunities for those considering refinancing their existing mortgage.”
