Vida has cut its HTB purchase and remortgage rates by up to 0.31%, with rates now starting from 3.67%. The refresh also includes a brand new 2-year Fixed rate range based on the lender’s 4.8% Revert Rate Special, which has been extended to all tiers.
Vida’s HTB offering is available up to 80% LTV for a Scottish purchase and 75% in England, London and Wales. Vida is also the first specialist lender to offer 85% LTV remortgage when staircasing.
Supporting the refresh, Vida offers a customised New Build process, which includes a fast-tracked initial offer lasting six months, extendable by a further six months, along with a dedicated New Build underwriting team.
The minimum income level requirement for all loans is £15,000 and up to four separate incomes can be accepted for HTB products.
