Peter Izard, head of mortgages at Saffron Building Society, said: “It isn’t just first-time buyers who struggle to raise a deposit.

“Young professionals at the start of their careers can suffer the same problem, which is why we’ve designed our Professional Mortgage with a higher LTV, competitive rate and no early repayment charges.”

Rob Jupp, chief executive of Brightstar Financial, added: “Saffron really is fulfilling its promise to develop mortgages which address a number of ‘special situations’.

“Here’s an excellent example of a deal designed for creditworthy borrowers who may otherwise struggle to get a mortgage because of the difficulties of raising a deposit. What’s more, on nearly all of Saffron’s mortgages there are no early repayment charges – an excellent feature.”

The Professional Mortgage, which has been specifically designed for professionals seeking higher LTV loans, includes the following features:

• Available up to 90% LTV

• 4.99% variable rate for 2 years (SVR – 0.4%)

• No early repayment charges

• Can be used for purchase or remortgaging up to £500,000

• 1% arrangement fee

• Available to bankers, accountants, actuaries, solicitors (including trainees), barristers, medical doctors, dentists, pharmacists, optometrists, vets, teachers, professionally qualified financial advisers and mortgage brokers

The Professional Mortgage is available via a panel of distributors which includes 3mc, AToM, Brightstar, Complete FS, L&G Network and Platinum Options. Brokers requiring further information about the new product range should, in the first instance, contact any of these distributors.

Saffron for Intermediaries also has products for Everyday Situations, which cater for borrowers seeking straightforward and competitively priced mortgages.

Saffron’s Special Situations range includes mortgages for first-time buyers, next steppers, the self-employed, property investors and landlords refurbishing property, self-builders, borrowers wishing to repair an adverse credit record, contractors and professionals.
