Openwork offers two exclusive fixed rate mortgages from Halifax

Openwork is offering two exclusive fixed rate products from Halifax for purchase and remortgage customers.

Available to buyers with a 10% deposit, the two-year fixed rate mortgages offer two options – a rate of 5.79% with a £1,499 fee, or 5.99% with a £999 fee.
