Newcastle BS revamps large loans 

Elsewhere Newcastle Intermediaries has announced changes to its large loan criteria, alongside launching a new range of products.

The mutual has increased its maximum loan amount from £2m to £3m, as well as increasing the maximum LTV to 60 per cent for interest-only borrowers looking to downsize via the sale of a mortgage property.

Its new range includes a two-year fixed rate at 6.45 per cent available up to 65 per cent LTV and a five-year fixed rate at 6.15 per cent up to the same LTV level. Both deals come with £1,499 product fees, and are available up to 5.5 times income.

Franco Di Pietro, head of intermediary mortgages at Newcastle Building Society, said the mutual was always looking to utilise intermediary feedback when refining its product range.

He continued: “These criteria enhancements, alongside the new products in our large loans range, enable us to continue to deliver a great range of options for brokers in meeting the needs of their higher-earning clients. This continued focus on our large loans proposition demonstrates our commitment to supporting our intermediary partners and their clients.”
