18th March 2014 Print

Monmouthshire Building Society has launched a new range of five year fixed rate house purchase and remortgage products just in time for spring.

The new house purchase product range is suitable for first-time buyers and other home buyers, offering competitive interest rates and up to 95% loan to value (LTV) in selected geographical areas.

The Society offers a five year fixed rate house purchase mortgage at 3.49% (with a maximum loan-to-value of 80%) which is available for house purchase across England and Wales, with a £995 product fee which can be added to the loan.

The range of new products also includes a 95% LTV five year fixed rate mortgage at 4.75%, with no product fee which is ideal for first-time buyers who may be finding it difficult to save up for a larger deposit. Full information about the product range can be found at the Society’s website (

For those customers looking to switch their mortgage from another lender, the Society has also launched a range of competitive five year fixed rate remortgage products, up to 90% LTV, and all with no product fees and free standard valuation and legal fees. The product range includes a five year fixed rate at 3.19% with a 65% LTV available throughout England and Wales, and a 90% LTV product with a five year fixed rate of 4.59% available in local areas only. (Our local geographical area is defined as postcode areas: NP, CF, SA, LD, WR, GL, HR and BS.)

Andrew Lewis, Chief Executive, said: “The Society has a strong and enviable reputation for supporting first-time buyers, as well as offering competitive options for those who may be thinking of remortgaging or moving home.”

He continued, “The introduction of such an extensive range of competitive products ensures that we can continue to fulfil our pledge to support both local and national mortgage customers achieve their dream of home ownership.”

In the twelve months to 30th April 2013, it experienced 8.1% growth, whilst profit after tax reached £3.1m, as customers continued to respond to the Society’s secure track record, quality of service and competitive product range.
