Newcastle launches five-year fix at 4.60%

Newcastle Building Society has launched a 4.60% five-year fixed rate mortgage, up to 80% LTV.

The product comes with free legal fees for re-mortgages in England and Wales or a cash back alternative for house purchase customers or remortgages in Scotland.  

There is also a free standard valuation for properties up to £500,000.

It is available on a semi-exclusive basis via Openwork, Legal & General, Your Move, Intrinsic, Positive Solutions and Brilliant Solutions.
