Mansfield cuts rates across ranges

Mortgage Introducer

March 5, 2020

The Mansfield Building Society has cut rates on its holiday let 2-year discounted rate to 95% LTV, and two discounted rates within its versatility product range.

Over 0.5% has been cut from its residential 2-year discount to 95% loan-to-value (LTV) with borrowers now able to choose an initial rate of 2.99% (variable).

Holiday lets see a 0.20% reduction, making the initial pay rate 3.45% variable, while the versatility mortgages are cut by 0.10% each, reducing the initial rates to 3.99% variable and 4.39% variable.

The range of versatility mortgages are for circumstances that require more underwriting expertise, such as unusual property types, complex income types (or those with limited employment/self-employed income history) and historic credit blips.

Paul Lewis, national development manager, at the society, said: “We hope the new pricing will provide an incentive for brokers and their clients to take advantage of our flexible approach to lending.

“We’re keen to increase the visibility of our well-priced discounted rates for those with circumstances who don’t meet automated scorecard criteria.

“Indeed, we have just been shortlisted for ‘Best Variable Rate Lender’ in the 2020 What Mortgage Awards and hope this latest set of changes make us even more appealing.

“However, we recognise that discounted variable rates aren’t for everyone, so I’m pleased to confirm that our Versatility range also includes fixed rates, providing even greater choice.”
