Barclays set to launch into the Help to Buy market
The lender has said it is going to launch a 5% deposit three-year fixed rate at 5.35% and a five-year fix at 5.49%. There is unlikely to be an arrangement fee attached to these mortgages and, after the fixed rate period, the rate will revert to the Bank of England base rate plus 3.99%.
The Prime Minister David Cameron recently announced that nearly 750 homeowners have completed their property purchases through the second phase of the Help to Buy Scheme. The average Help to Buy customer has purchased a home worth £160,000 and their average household income has been £45,000.
