Derbyshire Building Society
This review from Derbyshire Building Society sees its NetSaver account now paying 2.75% including a bonus of 1.75% until 28.2.14. This account still maintains a good position in the top ten in its sector. With unlimited withdrawals allowed it should continue to prove popular with internet investors.
Principality Building Society
This fixed ISA review from Principality Building Society sees a new 20 month bond added to its ISA portfolio. Offering a fixed rate of 3.23%, it is highly competitive in the one to two year sector. This account should prove popular to investors looking for a good rate on a short to medium term and who want to benefit from tax free savings. As with many fixed accounts, withdrawals are only permitted on closure with loss of interest, but additions up to the personal limit are allowed whilst the issue remains open.
Santander has launched a new five-year fixed rate deal priced at 3.19% to 2.11.17 at 60% loan-to-value. On rate alone this is a competitive product in its sector with a generous incentive package for both house purchase and remortgages customers. Some borrowers may be put off by the large fee of £1,495, however, this whole amount can be added to the advance of the mortgage.
Yorkshire Building Society
Yorkshire Building Society has made various amendments to its product range including the two-year fixed rate now priced at 4.79% for first time buyers only. Although there are lower rates available elsewhere this deal benefits from a fully stocked incentive package of free valuation fees, free legal fees and a £500 rebate on completion, which is bound to prove popular with those who are looking to keep initial costs down.
