Andrew Mason, Lloyds Bank Mortgage Products Director, had this to say: “Purchasing a home for the first time is an important step in everyone’s life and Lloyds Bank is committed to helping first-time buyers climb onto the property ladder. In April we launched our ‘hassle free’ mortgage offer to take some of the stress out of moving home, which gives first-time buyers – as well as home movers and those seeking to remortgage - help with legal and administration costs, plus expert advice to make it easier for them to secure a mortgage.
These latest rate reductions will provide first-time buyers with a further helping hand to support them in purchasing that all important first property.”
