Chelsea BS launches 1.83% four-year fix


Chelsea Building Society has launched a four-year fixed rate mortgage at 1.83 per cent and 65 per cent LTV.

The loan is currently the cheapest four-year fix on the market and is available to borrowers who are either buying a home or remortgaging.

It has a £995 product fee and can be bought online or by telephone.

 Chelsea Building Society product manager Richard Barker says: “Four-year cycles certainly play an important role in our lives – the Olympics, the World Cup, leap years and US Presidential elections to name a few, and this is now starting to reflect in how borrowers are managing their home loans.

“By fixing for four-years homeowners can ride out the current uncertainty in the market with the confidence that they have a competitive deal until the start of the next decade.”

Moneyfacts finance expert Rachel Springall says: “This brand new four-year fixed deal from Chelsea Building Society arrives at a time where choice is particularly limited in this area of the market and could excite borrowers hoping to fix beyond three years but do not feel that they can commit to a five year deal.

“Priced at 1.83 per cent it is the lowest rate in the market over a four-year fixed term by some margin, so it’s great to see more alternatives become available for borrowers in this low rate environment.”
