  • New and existing customers can benefit from lower fixed rates from Coventry for Intermediaries. The lender has cut its residential rates by up to 0.57% and its buy to let rates by up to 0.39%. Its updated range of products includes 2, 3, and 5-year fixed rates for residential loans. These products cover a wide loan-to-value spectrum, from 65% to 95%. Some of the attractive options in the new rates are a 2-year fixed rate of 4.61% until 30th June 2026, with a 75% LTV and a £999 product fee. This option is suitable for residential remortgage and offers either £350 cashback or the Remortgage Transfer Service. Another option is a 5-year fixed rate of 4.84% until 30 June 2029, with a 90% LTV and a £999 product fee, ideal for residential purchases.
  • Some of the buy to let (BTL) products from Suffolk Building Society, including holiday let and expat options, have new prices. The main features are a 2-year fixed buy to let product at 6.04% and a 5-year fixed one at 5.69%, both with 80% LTV.

  • Market Financial Solutions (MFS), a specialist lender, has lowered its rates for residential bridging and BTL mortgages. The rate cuts affect both fixed and variable products, as well as residential and commercial properties.
