With a current rate of 1.89% (as of 1st October 2016), the cost of a three year fixed mortgage with a 60% LTV is now 5% cheaper than it was at the start of July.
The same product with a 90% LTV (at 2.94% over three years) has seen a similar reduction in cost and is now 4% lower than it was three months ago.
In financial terms, the 5% cost reduction for the 60% three year product equates to an annualised saving of £342 over the past three months, while the 4% drop in cost for the 90% product equates to a potential £306 annualised saving over the past quarter, or £828pa when compared to this time last year.
Mortgage Brain’s latest data also shows cost reductions for a number of two year fixed and tracker mortgages. With a rate of 1.99%, a 60% LTV two year Fixed is now 4% cheaper than it was three months ago and offers an annualised saving of £270 over the past three months.
A 90% LTV two year fixed and a 60% LTV two year tracker cost 3% less than they did at the start of July, offering annualised savings of £216 and £252 respectively.
Whilst only witnessing a 1% drop over the past three months the reduction in cost for a 90% LTV two year tracker (at 2.59% over two years) equates to an annual saving of £666 when compared to October 2015.
Mark Lofthouse, CEO of Mortgage Brain, said: “There’s no doubt that the last six months have been an uncertain time in the UK economy. The pre-Brexit uncertainty, which many thought would end after the vote, has merely been replaced by post-Brexit uncertainty.
“Ironically, this means the outlook for borrowers at the moment has never been better with mortgage costs coming down yet again. The post-Brexit uncertainty is likely to continue for some time though and the knowledge and advice that brokers have and can give – especially when it comes to current options for short or long term tie-ins – has never been more important.”
