  • It’s actually not too poainful a rate even though the cost for comparison is 5.6%.
    The reality is this mortgage does nothing to help a FTB.
    How does knowing what your interest rate will be in 2,4,6,7, or 10 years time help a FTB? That’s right it doesn’t.

    BTW Money News looks little more than a site paid for by companies that advertise their products.

  • This says more about the long term direction of interest rates than anything else.

    possibly or it might indicate Leeds BS want’s to drum up some business, with the knowlege that there are allot of BLT’s out there who are getting a little warm under the collar?

  • “January 1st 2017 and will then switch to the Bank of England Base Rate as well as 0.95 per cent.”

    I bet that there is some small print that says that if the BoE rates are X times higher than current that they will apply more than .95%. There is no way they (the BS) would expose themselves to any risk.

  • The banks pick up money to fund their mortgages (often) from the money markets, where they are able to get fixed rates themselves from what is on offer.

    The Leeds BS may be intentionally picking up long term fixed money in an intentional effort to skew their customers more towards long term fixed rates.

    Perhaps they are trying to improve their future default levels?
