Ipswich BS has stepped up to the mark with the launch of a new two year fixed rate mortgage .

Available for house purchase only, the rate of 3.99% is a highly competitive rate for those borrowing at 80% loan to value.

Also appealing are the generous overpayments which are allowed, where up to 50% of the advance can be repaid before incurring early redemption charges.

This should prove particularly attractive to those wanting the security of a fixed rate, with the option to make significant reductions to their loan.

Being the only mortgage deal available at a rate of less than 4% to borrowers with a deposit of 20%, this product earns four out five Moneyfacts stars.
