Pepper Money launches “zero completion fee” deals

Pepper Money has announced new limited edition residential and buy to let products with no completion fees – saving £945 for residential mortgage borrowers and 1 per cent for buy to let customers.

The new offerings come in two- and five-year fixed versions and are aimed at borrowers who’ve not received a CCJ or default in the previous 36 or 48 months.

For residential mortgages, the two-year fix comes in from 2.88 per cent, and the five-year from 3.53 per cent, at up to 85 per cent LTV.

Those looking to buy to let will receive rates starting from 3.18 per cent with a LTV of up to 80 per cent.

Pepper Money sales director Rob Barnard says: “We are always looking for ways to deliver competitive solutions to interesting cases and this limited edition is the latest example of us identifying an opportunity for brokers to provide their clients with a better deal.

“We will continue to review and refine our proposition to ensure we become brokers’ go-to choice for specialist lending.”

The current account deficit has shrunk, inflation is falling and the government has embarked on a heavy dose of much needed fiscal consolidation. As a result, the rupee has been one of the strongest global currencies this year while the market has touched all-time highs, rallying by more than 20 per cent (GBP) since September.
