Saffron adds products and cuts rates in RIO range

Saffron Building Society has added products to its retirement interest-only range and cut rates on select offerings.

The new products include a 50 per cent LTV three-year fix at 3.67 per cent. This offering is within the lender’s retirement interest-only range, has a £999 arrangement fee and is also available at 3.37 per cent providing a Power of Attorney is in place.

Furthermore, the lender has reduced rates on the 50 per cent LTV three-year discount from 3.64 per cent to 3.44 per cent.

This deal is also in Saffron’s RIO range, has a £499 arrangement fee and is available at a lower rate providing a Power of Attorney is in place – 3.14 per cent.

The products mentioned above are for purchase or remortgage, include an ERC of 3 per cent, a 20 per cent penalty per annum on overpayments and a maximum loan value of £1m.
