The Yorkshire helps first-time buyers with an extra £500

4th February 2016 Print

Yorkshire Building Society is giving first-time buyers a helping hand by offering them an extra £500 cashback when they complete on a mortgage with the Society.

All first-time buyers completing on mortgages at 90% or 95% loan-to-values (LTVs) will be eligible for the extra cashback, which will be applied on top of all other existing incentives for the specific mortgage they choose.

For example, under the new offer, a first-time buyer who took out a 2.89% two-year fixed rate with a 90% deposit, which has a £0 product fee, free standard valuation and £250 cashback on completion would receive an additional £500 cash back, taking the total cashback on completion to £750.

The extra cashback is designed to help first-time buyers with the upfront costs of moving into their first home.

Brendan Gilligan, Mortgage Product Manager for Yorkshire Building Society, said: “We know that while buying your first home is an extremely exciting, landmark event for many first-time buyers, it can also be hard on their bank balances. We understand all of our borrowers are individuals and want to help them in the way which is most appropriate for them.

“Giving first-time buyers an extra £500 cashback when they complete on their mortgage gives them a little extra money to use in whatever way will benefit them most – for example, putting it towards their moving costs, using it to buy furniture or even saving it for a rainy day.”
