Ben Merritt, senior mortgage manager at Yorkshire Building Society, said: “We’re really pleased to add these latest deals, which include our lowest rates for a number of years, to our mortgage range to give borrowers more competitive choice when financing their home.
“With many homeowners and buyers keen to take advantage of the current low rate environment we’ve strengthened both our short and longer-term deals with a variety of options suited to varying borrower needs, including no and low fee mortgages, and those with additional features such as cashback and free standard valuation.”
The society is the latest lender to offer a mortgage with an interest rate of below 1%. Both HSBC and Halifax have launched sub-1% deals in the past month.
