Britannia has unveiled something sure to be of interest to mortgage borrowers looking towards the long term.

Its new 10 year fixed rate mortgage at a rate of 5.29% is ideal for homebuyers with a 25% deposit, and the best rate available in that market.

A fee of £999 is reasonable too, while there's an incentive package for remortgages of free valuation and legal fees to boot.

A no fee option is also available at the slightly higher rate of 5.49%.

Sailing on serenely, this product earns four out of five Moneyfacts stars.

"Our mortgage range continues to offer borrowers a choice of rates and fees which means that borrowers can choose the product which best suits their needs," said John Hughes, Business Leader for Retail Products at The Co-operative Financial Services.

"As these rates are aligned across Britannia and The Co-operative Bank it also means that borrowers have even more access to our market-leading rates which are available in more than 300 branches, online and on the telephone."
