Commenting, David Bitner, head of product operations for The MarketPlace, said: “Remortgaging is very popular at the moment with many people taking advantage of the current low rates. Recent CML figures showed that remortgaging accounted for over 50% of loans taken out in January, a new
record. This deal is very competitive on remortgages with an initial discount period of 2 and a half years, a free valuation, free legals and a low arrangement fee.

“In addition it has the added benefit of no tie-ins which is a great feature. It allows people to take the product without fear that, should they choose to move home or change mortgage, they will be heavily penalised”
