  • New rates feature cashback aimed at helping first-time buyers and reduced Help to Buy and Buy to Let rates


Post Office Money Mortgages has today launched a new range of competitive mortgages, including its first ever seven-year fixed rate. The move follows demand from customers for longer term value without committing to a 10 year deal.

The new seven-year fixed rate at 75% LTV has a rate of 2.59% with early repayment charges of just 4% until 30/11/2020, 3% until 30/11/2022 and 2% until 30/11/2023.

Market leading rates

Also included in the new range are market-leading fixed rates across several 90% and 85% LTV deals.

Market-leading rates include:

  • 85% LTV three-year fixed rate at 2.16%
  • 85% LTV five-year fixed rate at 2.49%

Cashback deals

The new range also introduces reduced Help to Buy rates, and new deals for Buy to Let customers. The new rates also feature cashback offers for first-time buyers [full range in Notes to Eds].

Cashback deals for first-time buyers:

  • 90% LTV two-year fixed rate at 2.69% (£500 cashback on completion, free valuation)
  • 90% LTV three-year fixed rate at 2.84% (£500 cashback on completion, free valuation)
  • 90% LTV five-year fixed rate at 3.28% (£750 cashback on completion, free valuation)

Customers can pick up information about the new mortgage range and rates online at postoffice.co.uk/mortgages or from one of over 11,600 Post Office branches across the UK. Customers can also arrange a call-back from a mortgage adviser at the call centre, via all branches, or call the Post Office directly on 0800 077 8033. Terms and condition can be found at postoffice.co.uk


John Willcock, Head of Post Office Money Mortgages, said: “We are continuing to improve our mortgage offering across the board and adding a seven-year fixed rate for the first time allows us to give customers a wider range of choice and allowing them to take advantage of historic low interest rates.

“As strong supporters of the Help to Buy scheme, we are also pleased to be able to cut rates for those striving to get onto the property ladder. From our own research we understand the difficulty first-time buyers are facing, with 40 per cent (8.5 million) of those currently renting not believing they will ever be able to buy their own property we are keen to provide support where we can.”
