Leeds unveils new products

Leeds has launched a two-year fixed rate and a two-year offset fixed product.

Both products have no early repayment charges and are either fee free or assisted fee versions.

Jeff Kirk, corporate relationship manager at Leeds, says: “With market rates unsettled and many market commentators predicting a further rise in base rate, possibly as early as next month, many clients will be looking for ways to protect themselves against any increase.

“With this in mind we have launched these highly competitive two-year fixed rates offering certainty of payments, the ability to budget and flexibility.

“These products offer superb value and the flexibility of unlimited capital repayments at any time, so if rates do fall within the benefit period, clients can remortgage without penalty.

“There are also fee free and fee assisted versions and an offset product for even greater flexibility.

“I am confident that our range will help many clients find excellent value and peace of mind in the current rising rate environment.”
