There is also positive news for First Time Buyers and home movers who have a smaller deposit. The new lower priced products below are some of the most competitive currently available:

90% LTV 2 year fixed - 3.59% with GBP950 fee

90% LTV Fee Saver 2 year fixed - 3.89%

90% LTV 5 year fixed - 4.29% with GBP950 fee

90% LTV Fee Saver Lifetime tracker - 4.49%

Andrew Hagger of commented: 'It's refreshing to see that first direct is offering competitive mortgage deals at both ends of the LTV spectrum.

'Too often those not fortunate enough to have the luxury of a 20% plus deposit are overlooked and have to search hard to find a sensibly priced home loan.

'With rate rises still a possibility from 2015 the 5 year fix at 2.89% is likely to prove very popular with home movers. '

Andy Forbes, Head of Products at first direct commented: 'In order to provide the best deal for all our customers, whether they have a large or small deposit, we've refreshed our mortgage range and reduced rates to ensure everyone can have access to some of the most keenly priced products in the market.'
