Halifax lowers rates; Melton BS ups max loan size – round-up
Halifax will make rate cuts of up to 0.19% for two- and five-year fixed rates within its homemover and first-time buyer range.

The changes to Halifax’s products come into force from 24 May.

Its two-year fixed rate at 60% loan to value (LTV) has gone down by 0.18% to 4.78%, and at 90% LTV, the rate has fallen by 0.19% to 5.43%.

The lender’s five-year fixed rate at 60% LTV has decreased by 0.17% to 4.45%, and at 75% LTV, the price has decreased by 0.14% to 4.56%.

Earlier this month, Halifax made an interest-only change.


Melton BS ups maximum loan size

Melton Building Society will increase the maximum loan size across its LTV range.

For those borrowing between 75% and 80% LTV, the maximum loan size will stand at £1m. 90% LTV can secure up to £750,000 and 95% LTV can borrow up to £500,000.

For borrowers looking for loans up to £75% LTV in excess of the loan of £1m, Melton Building Society will launch two- and five-year fixed rates up to £2.5m.

The products will be available on a capital and repayment basis for those borrowing on an interest-only basis, and will be available up to 60% LTV.

Dank Atkinson, head of intermediaries at Melton Building Society, said: “At Melton Building Society, we are always looking for ways to support a broader range of borrowers, whether that’s through our products, criteria or responding to client and broker feedback.

“It’s well-documented that house prices have gone through a period of sustained growth for a number of years now. It’s clear the impact this has had on buyers, particularly those buying in the South, who have been experiencing significant challenges with higher-than-average house prices.

“Our aim is to offer a broader range of clients the option of a mortgage with Melton Building Society, and we’re committed to helping prospective homeowners and those looking to take their next steps on the property ladder.”
