Yorkshire Building Society is offering special deals on its flexible loan


to new borrowers and remortgaging clients.


The four options are an initial interest rate of 3.74 per cent for the


first four months of the loan, a 5.99 per cent fixed rate for one year, the


first two months of the deal are interest-free and there is free valuation


and £250 cashback towards legal fees.


The first two options have been available for several weeks and the latter


two options are due to be available from this week. Yorkshire says the


four-month discount rate and the £250 towards legal fees will probably


appeal most to first-time buyers.
