Leeds is extending its non-income verification on its mortgage products

Leeds Building Society is extending the terms of its non-income verification on its mortgage products, now available on a product specific basis.

A new 2-year fixed rate at 4.95 per cent for self-cert has been launched available up to 75 per cent LTV.

It will allow 10 per cent capital repayment each year with a 0.75 per cent competion fee.

There is also a fee-free option at 5.49 per cent with free legal service for remortgages and a free valuation up to 335.

Leeds head of marketing and PR Karen Wint says: “This product extends our move into the non-income verification market. It makes it easier for customers and intermediaries to submit their applications quickly and our credit scoring
system enhances our underwriting process. Although we offer the service
already, we felt it was right to promote a specific product for the
self-certification market and extend the maximum loan to value.”
