Furness Building Society has reviewed its mortgage range, with the market-leading three-year fixed rate entering the Moneyfacts Best Buys.

The basics…

At 3.69% fixed to 31 May 2016, this three-year mortgage is available to borrowers with at least a 15% deposit. It also charges a reasonable fee of £499.

The finer details….

Applicants must borrow a minimum of £50,000 up to a maximum of £500,000.

Borrowers who are remortgaging will also benefit from a generous incentive package, including: free valuation fees (up to a maximum of £335) and free legal fees or £150 towards legal fees.

Why we like it….

Furness BS's three-year fixed mortgage offers the lowest rate at this loan-to-value tier (85%) – its nearest competitor charges 0.10% more and comes with a higher fee. The comprehensive incentive package for those remortgaging will further boost its appeal.

This market-leading product has been awarded five out of five Moneyfacts Stars.
