BM Solutions QYX BBR + 2.69% from Pink Home Loans is an adverse credit tracker mortgage set at 2.69 per cent above the Bank of England base rate for two years.

Park Row Independent Mortgages managing director Kevin Paterson says: ” Unlike many products aimed at the minor adverse market, this product has no overhang which is attractive to advisers. However, the rate is still punitive at 7.19 per cent and there is a hefty lender fee of £449.”

Paterson likes the introducer&#39s fee, particularly the 1 per cent payable via online submissions. But when asked what he does not like about the product he highlights the interest rate and the fees associated with the mortgage. Future Mortgages&#39 two- year discount at 5.99 per cent is considered by Paterson to be the main competitor to this mortgage.
