Specialist lender Vida Homeloans has brought in free valuations for properties valued at up to £500,000.

As part of the ‘fee saver’ range the lender has also reduced the assessment fee to £49.

There are no product fees and standard legals are free on remortgages across the range.

Vida has also introduced a 1 per cent fee (minimum £495) for buy-to-let mortgages on its Vida 1 tier up to a maximum loan size of £125,000, replacing the previous fixed fee of £1,995.
