Bricks building housing construction

Sesame Bankhall Group and PMS have secured an exclusive two-year fixed rate 3.79 per cent product up to 95 per cent LTV.

On offer from Leeds Building Society, the product comes with a free standard valuation for customers for properties worth up to £2m.

This product has no up-front booking fee and a £199 arrangement fee, paid on completion.

Sesame Bankhall Group senior product manager Rob McCoy says: “With a low fixed rate and no booking fee this product is ideal for first time buyers as well as those homemovers with smaller deposits.

“This will be amongst the most competitive products in the market and will, I’m sure, be popular with our members.”

Leeds Building Society director of business development Martin Richardson says: “Leeds Building Society is delighted to be working in collaboration with Sesame and PMS and will continue to support first time buyers and others with smaller deposits, as part of our efforts to help borrowers who are not well served by the wider market.”
