Yorkshire Building Society is offering a two-year fixed rate mortgage at 3.25% in a bid to help first-time buyers.

The 95% loan-to-value (LTV) mortgage is available to homebuyers with small deposits and includes a £995 product fee plus £250 cashback on completion.

The Yorkshire are also offering a 1.97% two-year fix to remortgage and home purchase customers with a 10% deposit which is available with the same product fee and cashback.

Number of 90% LTV 2-year fixes at record high

Charles Mungroo, mortgage product manager at Yorkshire Building Society, said: “It’s been the season for record low mortgage rates; however the focus has mainly been on borrowers with larger deposits.

“We hope our latest rate reductions appeal to those with smaller deposits or equity amounts and the cashback offer will help to reduce the upfront costs of buying a home.

Rachel Springall, finance expert at Moneyfacts.co.uk, added: “It’s fantastic to see Yorkshire Building Society offering first-time buyers not only an attractive rate but also an appealing £250 cashback.

“As with any mortgage, borrowers need to weigh up the overall true cost to find the best deal for them.”
