The Co-operative Bank has announced that it is to launch a new range of mortgages at a loan-to-value (LTV) ratio of 60 per cent.
From tomorrow (January 20th 2012), customers will be able to benefit from good rates on both fixed and tracker products if they have a deposit of 40 per cent.
For example, the two-year fixed-rate deal has an interest rate of 2.79 per cent, while the three-year deal offers 3.19 per cent.
There is also a 2.59 per cent variable fee-free lifetime tracker available for people who already have a current account with the Co-op.
Spokesperson James Hillon said: "Our 60 per cent LTV mortgages have been introduced to complement our existing mortgage products, which are designed to support all kinds of borrowing ranging from first-time buyers to remortgage customers."
Earlier this month, the Co-op said it would not be charging interest for existing customers with a pre-agreed overdraft until April 2012.
