Britannia and the Co-op offer 90 per cent LTVs

The measures include the re-introduction of 90% LTV options on a range of new mortgage products from Friday (30 April), the launch of a new online advice guide for first-time buyers and tailored support and advice for first time buyers and those looking to move house.

Rod Bulmer, managing director retail for The Co-operative Financial Services, explained: "We are keen to do as much as possible to help support mortgage customers as we're aware that buying a house can be confusing at the best of times, and especially for people who have not been through the experience before.

"Our solution to help support first-time buyers and home movers provides not only a range of market leading mortgage options, but also a range of useful information both online and in branches in order to ensure customers feel supported throughout the home buying journey.”

Available from Friday (30 April) the new 90% LTV tiers will be added to the two-year and five-year fixed-rate mortgages and the three-year tracker product.
