Halifax extends seven-year mortgage deal to NewBuy customers

Halifax Intermediaries will now offer its seven-year no product fee mortgage deal to all NewBuy customers at 5.89 per cent.

Halifax has also reduced the rates on the two-year fixed product range by up to 0.2 per cent. The two-year fixed rate at 80 per cent to 85 per cent LTV for homemovers has been brought down by 0.1 per cent to 4.79 per cent.

The rate on the 75 per cent to 85 per cent two-year fixed for remortgages has been reduced by 0.2 per cent to 4.89 per cent.

Halifax Intermediaries head of sales Ian Wilson says: “We are already leading in the new-build market, and this offer will prove to be yet another compelling proposition for brokers’ NewBuy customers. To supplement our unrivalled specialist new-build team, we now also have a much more competitive product. This will allow brokers to provide their customers – no matter whether they are first time buyers or homeowners – with longer term certainty at higher LTV.

“The long term nature of this deal will provide customers with the certainty of set monthly payments over a greater length of time; enabling potential buyers to purchase new homes they would have previously considered unattainable.”

Halifax currently provides more than one in three of the mortgages in the Government’s NewBuy scheme.
