Product changes at Rooftop Mortgages

Rooftop Mortgages has announced revised rates across its product range. It has reduced its loan to values and self-certification loadings, and says this means as much as 0.55 per cent has been shaved off some products.

It has also introduced a stream-lined service for loans of 70 per cent LTV or lower to alleviate delays caused by obtaining proof of mortgage payments.

Head Jonathan Naylor says: “This further demonstrates our commitment to leading edge product development. Our close working relationship with the Mortgage Distributors Co Operative means that we can swiftly respond to feedback and build on our successful entry into the market as a new non-conforming lender.”
