London, United Kingdom (26 November, 2012) – MeetMyAgent.co.uk, an independent estate agent review and rating website, comments after the Co-Operative Bank announced the launch of a two-year fixed rate mortgage for borrowers with a 10 per cent deposit, and charges under 4 per cent interest.

The mortgage from the Co-operative Bank carries no set-up fee, and charges 3.99 per cent until 31st December 2014. This offer is now the UK’s official best-buy loan, having taken over Chelsea Building Society’s competitive rate of 4.19 per cent, and represents what MeetMyAgent believes is a considerable saving for first-time buyers who can only save up a small deposit.

A spokesperson for MeetMyAgent commented: "This competitive mortgage offer from the Co-Operative is hopefully the beginning of some much-needed competition in the high loan-to-value section of the market.

“The government’s funding for lending scheme has certainly helped consumers with deposits of 20% or above, as mortgage lenders use the cheap loans from the government to pass on rate savings.

“However, the typical first-time buyer with a 10% deposit is yet to see the full benefits of the scheme, and lenders are remaining cautious; pooling most of their resources into borrowers with high deposits.

“To get the housing market moving, first-time buyers, who generally have modest deposits, need to have access to lending at competitive rates - providing that they are creditworthy, of course.

“It will be interesting to see how the 10% deposit end of the market develops in terms of rates over the next few months."
