Pepper Money launches lowest ever rates

Pepper Money has launched new 60% and 65% LTV tiers for clients who have not had a CCJ or default in the last 48 or 36 months.

He added: “We review each case on its own merits and don’t use credit scores to determine pricing, so you can be sure that, assuming all details are correct, the rate you recommend to your client is the rate they will be offered.

“With rates now available from 2.17%, there has never been a more transparent and affordable solution for your interesting cases.”
