It is offering 1, 2 and 3 year mortgages fixed at 4.75 per cent. 5.75 per cent and 6.25 per cent respectively.


It will lend borrowers 100 per cent of the loan they require providing they are buying a minimum of 25 per cent of the whole property.


IFAs will be paid a procuration fee worth 0.5 per cent of the loan.
