Kensington launches offers on mortgage range

Kensington Mortgages has today revealed a series of offers on its existing product range.

The range includes free valuations on all applications up to a maximum property value of 500,000, with 250 cashback in Scotland, and 400 cashback on the high adverse range, with 500 cashback in Scotland.

Kensington has also reduced interest rates with rates now starting from 3.95%, removed the early repayment charge overhang on the two-year fixed range and significantly reduced ERCs on other products.

Alison Hutchinson, managing director for Kensington Mortgages, says: “These exciting changes to our product range are yet another example of Kensingtons on-going commitment to create a product range that is innovative, competitive and can be tailored to meet our customer needs.

“In addition – since our formation in 1995 – we have never jeopardised our reputation for the quality of service we provide. Overall, this has been a very successful year for us.

“We are continuing to make Kensington the right choice for both introducers and borrowers by introducing new initiatives like our online DIP and application facility and the flexible mortgage product to meet the needs of self-employed customers.”
