The interest rate for a 90% LTV two year fixed rate mortgage is now two and a half times higher than a 60% LTV product of the same type, according to the latest figures from Mortgage Brain’s quarterly product data analysis.
The analysis, a breakdown of all main product types in the UK mortgage market for a repayment mortgage, is calculated by the lowest rate for a property worth £180,000. Latest figures – as of 1st October 2013 – show that the lowest rate for a 90% two year Fixed mortgage (at 3.54%) is now 2.39 times higher than the lowest rate product with a 60% LTV (1.48%).
The difference between the lowest rate 60% and 90% LTV Tracker is almost as great – 2.1 times (or 112%) higher, with the lowest rates currently standing at 1.69% (60% LTV) and 3.59% for a 90% LTV product.
The gap between the two LTV bands has also widened since the start of the year – up 21% – when the 90% LTV two year fixed was listed as being 1.98 times more than the lowest rate 60% LTV product.
Converted to actual cost over a two year period for a repayment mortgage, the lowest rate two year Fixed mortgage with a 90% LTV is now calculated to cost borrowers 25% more than the lowest rate 60% product (up from 12% more in January 2013).
Similarly, borrowers looking for a 90% two year Tracker will face an 18% increase in the cost for the repayment compared to the lowest rate 60% LTV product.
