UCB raises rates on self-cert two-year fixed loans

UCB Home Loans is increa- sing interest rates on its self-certification two-year fixed-rate mortgages by 0.15 per cent.

The company has now set flexible self-cert two-year fixes for purchase and remortgage at 5.14 per cent and 6.7 per cent respectively.

The lender says that its other self-cert fixed rates and buy-to-let fixed rates are unchanged.

Managing director Keith Astill says: “The market has enjoyed a period of low fixed rates over recent months but we can see that the tide may be beginning to turn.

“We have only applied this relatively small increase to our two-year self-certification products. Our three-year and five-year self-cert fixed rates and our complete buy-to-let range have some of the most competitive rates and lowest arrangement fees in the market.”
