Colin Snowdon, managing director , Freedom Lending said: “The continuing low interest rate environment means borrowers are still happy to lock into fixed rates. This is the first time Freedom Lending has marketed fixed rate mortgages and we have worked hard to ensure our range stands up to close comparison with the best in the market. 2 year fixes continue to be the most popular category and our product comes with the added benefit of no overhanging early repayment charges. Our Buy to let (rental income) 2 year fixed rate product also requires a rental calculation of just 125% at the pay rate.”

“We have also taken the opportunity to introduce further enhancements to our range including enhanced adverse criteria, a new ‘unlimited’ category on our standard adverse mortgages, increased overpayments allowance and the availability of capital raising for non business purposes up to the product maximum LTV on our prime residential and buy to let mortgages.”
