After a brief absence for operational reasons, Suffolk Building Society has returned to the 95% market with residential fixed and discount products. These three products offer new options for borrowers, including first time buyers. They include 5-year fixed, 2-year fixed and 2-year discount.

The Society has also made reductions on its resi products at 90% and 80%, with up to 29bps off interest only deals.

The following will be available from Tuesday 11 June 2024:

●      95% LTV 2 year fixed at 5.89% until 30 September 2026.

Charlotte Grimshaw, Head of Intermediary Relations and Mortgage Sales, Suffolk Building Society said: “We’re still in a highly dynamic mortgage market. By dropping rates on residential options, and bringing back 95% LTV products for lower-deposit borrowers, we’re helping to put home ownership within the grasp of first time buyers and keep the cost of monthly mortgage payments down.

“The Society is also pleased to be able to reduce the rates on three interest only products. We know these will help brokers with their later life customers, where we’ve carved out a strong niche, in part due to no maximum age limits and our acceptance of pension assets. Borrowers with larger loans may face affordability challenges, and interest only deals might appeal to them.

“While we’re known for our niches – later life, holiday let, self build, and expat – we write a lot of standard residential business. Our team of manual underwriters assesses each case individually, so one late mobile phone direct debit won’t necessarily trigger the computer to say no!”

 
 

The Society has communicated this product information to intermediaries via email, and the product pages on the Society’s websites have been updated. The deals can be found through the Society’s Mortgage Product Finder tool, along with further details.
