Ten-year fixed rate mortgages are also available from Nationwide, starting at 2.69%(3.16% APRC) with a £999 fee, or 2.79%(3.23% APRC) with no fee for a 60% loan-to-value (LTV) deal, which the lender says is its lowest ever rate.

Older buyers are being offered extra assistance from Leeds Building Society, as the lender ups its maximum lending age.

Leeds will now lend to borrowers up to the age of 80, at the end of the mortgage term, which is an increase of five years from its previous criteria.

The revision applies to residential mortgages only and follows moves from Halifax and Nationwide, which upped their maximum lending age to 80 and 85 respectively.
