To build on that we hope that the introduction of these 90% LTV products will offer more choice to our customers, particularly those who have a limited deposit to put down.”

The Chelsea building society has also reviwed a number of its other product rangers and are also cutting the rates of a selected number of its mortgage products.

Chris Smith the Chelsea mortgage societies group product manager, says: “Given recent activity within swap rates we have been able to further reduce a number of our mortgage rates, making them even more competitive for consumers. We are offering a 3.79% five-year fixed rate mortgage up to 60% LTV and a 2.79% two-year fixed rate mortgage up to 60% LTV.”

This means that for example, a five year fixed rate mortgage for a home worth one hundred thousand pound over twenty five years. Would require a deposit of forty thousand pounds and a loan of sixty thousand pounds. The interest for the five year period would be 3.79 percent resuting in a month a monthly payment of £521.

The two year fixed rate version at 2.79% would work out at round £467 per month based on a a borrower looking to purchase a £100,000 home. They would need a £40,000 deposit as the loan to value (LTV) is 60%. This would mean the value of the laon would be £60,000 over a standard twenty five year period.
