New mortgage offer

Newport-based Monmouthshire Building Society has launched a range of two-year fixed-rate mortgage products.

Colin Strong, head of lending procurement, said: “The society has achieved unprecedented success with its previous fixed-rate product launches, with more and more of our customers seeking a fixed-rate deal.

“In response to customer demand, we have revamped our fixed-rate products to further support first-time buyers and those looking to remortgage.”

Adviser view

Jason Gentles, a mortgage specialist at Leeds-based Mortgage Tree, said: “The interest rate on the house purchase mortgage sounds competitive.

“There is definitely a demand for fixed-rate products because people are worried that interest rates are going to go up and they want to make sure they are tied in.”
