The Society has also introduced 90% loan-to-value (LTV) lending within LA Postcodes.
Furness has priced up its 95% lending products and also introduced two fixed rates at 90% loan-to-value (LTV).
Previously the lender allowed home movers and remortgage customers to access its 95% lending butboth product ranges are now restricted to first-time buyers only.
At 95% LTV, for first-time buyers looking to buy a property in an LA postcode you can choose from either a two or 5-year fixed-rate priced at 3.69% and 3.89% respectively.
At 90% LTV the rates for a 2 and 5 year fixed rate are 3.29% and 3.49%. There is no product fee for any of these products.
Neil Tribick, BDM for the Society’s heartland, said: “We’re doing everything we can to keep our promise to help our local first-time buyers get on the property ladder.
"With the lack of high LTV products in the market we’ve had to make some changes to protect our very special proposition. Applications on new build houses with gifted deposits are welcome, together with joint applicant, sole proprietorship solutions available.
"Our teams are working very hard to make sure our service levels remain on track, we’re happy to answer your calls and broker registration and DIPs are all readily available”
Furness’ 90% LTV and 95% LTV products are only available for first-time buyers buying a property within an LA postcode.
