Leeds BS launches 10-year fix at 4.58%

Leeds Building Society has launched a 10-year fixed rate mortgage at 4.58 per cent and available up to 75 per cent.

An additional product, available up to 80 per cent LTV, has also been launched at 4.79 per cent.

Leeds Building Society’s Head of Intermediary Sales Phil Coombes says: “With 10-year market rates at historically low levels, we are able to offer these long-term market leading fixed rate mortgages from only 4.58 per cent.

“The products are available for both purchases and remortgages and clients can lock-in value for a decade which, in the current economic environment, delivers security and peace of mind at a very low rate.

“Furthermore, there is no higher lending charge and clients can pay off 10 per cent of capital each year, without penalty. The mortgages are also fully portable should a borrower wish to move home during the term, providing even greater flexibility.”
