Leeds Building Society has refreshed its Help to Buy equity range and added new cashback deals at different LTV levels.

The range now includes a 1.74 per cent two-year fixed rate mortgage available up to 75 per cent LTV.

Leeds is also now selling a 2.29 per cent three-year fixed rate mortgage available up to 80 per cent LTV.

The lender will also sell a 2.29 per cent five-year fixed rate mortgage at up to 75 per cent LTV.

Leeds only sells the loans through brokers and includes a standard valuation with each.

Leeds Building Society director of product and distribution Jaedon Green says: “We’ve responded to broker feedback in how we’re simplified our Help to Buy proposition.

“The Society offers a choice of incentive deals to suit borrowers’ individual needs and we’ve added £500 cashback to the latest deals to give brokers and their customers more flexibility.

“We’re mindful of the current pressures facing the remortgage conveyancing market so the cashback gives borrowers the option to choose their own conveyancer and potentially speed up the process.”
