With the FIFA World Cup in Brazil well underway, Virgin Money is launching a range of new mortgage products to take its range of intermediary-exclusive mortgages to 11-strong.

The new products will be available from 17 June 2014 for a limited period. The full range of mortgages available exclusively through intermediaries registered with a Virgin Money national account will be:

Fixed rates (with a £995 product fee)

  1. Two-year fixed rate at 2.05% up to 50% LTV
  2. Three-year fixed rate at 2.48% up to 60% LTV
  3. Three-year fixed rate at 2.79% up to 75% LTV
  4. Four-year fixed rate at 2.99% up to 60% LTV
  5. Four-year fixed rate at 3.29% up to 75% LTV
  6. Five-year fixed rate at 3.18% up to 60% LTV
  7. Five-year fixed rate at 3.48% up to 75% LTV

Fixed rates (with a £1,495 product fee)

  1. Five-year fixed rate at 3.10% up to 60% LTV

Trackers (with a £995 product fee)

  1. Two-year tracker at 1.78% up to 60% LTV
  2. Two-year tracker at 2.09% up to 75% LTV

Buy-to-let (with a £1,995 product fee and £500 cashback)

  1. Buy-to-let two-year fixed rate at 3.09% up to 60% LTV

Peter Rogerson, Virgin Money’s Savings and Mortgages Director said: “The new line up shows real strength throughout. There’s a solid back line with our longer term fixed rates, a good mix of creativity with defensive qualities in the midfield through our 3 and 4 year fixes, and the attacking punch of the 2 year fixed and tracker rates up front. There is some strong opposition out there, but we’re confident we’ll perform well with this team.”

NOTES TO EDITORS


Early Repayment Charges

Following the fixed rate or tracker period, residential loans will revert to Virgin Money’s Standard Variable Rate (currently 4.79%) for the life of the loan. Buy-to-let loans will revert to Virgin Money’s Buy-to-Let Variable Rate (currently 4.99%) for the life of the loan. On Everyday products, the Early Repayment Charge will apply to the outstanding secured loan balance at the time of redemption. Any overpayments in excess of the 10% annual allowance will also be subject to the Early Repayment Charge.

Fee Saver Option

The Fee Saver Option is ideal for customers looking to keep their fee costs as low as possible. This option is available across most of the range of mortgage products, enabling customers to choose between lower rates on a range of product fees, or paying a slightly higher rate without a product fee. Where fees are added to the loan they will incur interest for the term of the loan.
