Our client was approaching the end of their existing fixed rate mortgage and asked for help to secure a competitively priced ten-year deal.
He was keen to get a mortgage offer in place and avoid reverting to his existing lender's standard variable rate.
Working in the financial sector for a company in London, he earned enough money to meet the lenders 4.5 times income multiple limit.
There is a selection of lenders, particularly building societies, offering impressively low ten-year fixes, but one in particularly has good rates for clients with lots of equity in their property.
The lender also provides a free property valuation and a free legals service, to reduce the cost of remortgaging to another lender.
