NatWest introduces 50% LTV remortgage deal

NatWest Intermediary Solutions has launched a two-year fixed rate remortgage product at 50% LTV.

The deal comes with a rate of 2.99% and a fee of £499 and will be part of the lender’s corporate range.

Bullard adds: “I am sure that the combination of a great rate and a low fee will be welcomed. The addition of this product further broadens our overall range, giving us good coverage across the LTV bands from 50% right up to 90%.”

Despite the Bank of England base rate being 0.5%, to secure an advantageous interest rate on a buy-to-let mortgage of 3.99% – which is hardly giving it away – our clients have to pay an arrangement fee of 3%. So, […]
