Freedom launches two-year self-cert tracker

Freedom Lending has launched a two-year discounted self-cert tracker mortgage available exclusively via Mortgage 2000.

The product starts at 5.93% to 85% LTV, and 6.13% to 90% LTV with a £799 completion fee. With a £999 completion fee, the product starts at 5.79% to 85% LTV and 5.99% to 90% LTV. The mortgage also includes a self-cert let-to-buy option.

Mel Dring, marketing director at Freedom, says: “There continues to be a strong demand for self-cert mortgages and the discounted tracker rate makes this an ideal option for anyone who is willing to look beyond another possible base rate increase.

“These two year deals are proving to be extremely popular and I have no doubt this will sell well via Mortgage 2000.”

Nikki Haworth, corporate partnerships manager at Mortgage 2000, says: “We’ve listened to our users and together we have created these new exclusives, with market leading rates, free valuation, free legals and no admin fee.

“I’m sure these products will be extremely popular with our brokers and in addition we have an onsite underwriter to speed up the entire process.”
