Halifax has added an incentive of 50% towards council tax to the vast majority of its mortgage products.

This extra, which has a maximum value of £1K, is available to house purchases and for direct business, with the exception of 4.99% fixed to 31.7.11.

Although many of its competitors have offered free legal fees or free valuations for some time, Halifax is the first bank to offer this perk.

It has been awarded four out of five Moneyfacts stars.
