Leeds BS is replicating the form of the city's football team by jumping to the top of the five year fixed rate mortgage league.

Its new deal of 4.75% to 28 February 2015 is the lowest over the five year term.

The product is available up to 75% loan to value, while there is a fee of £999 for advances up to £500K or 1% of advances over £500K.

Worth bearing in mind is that the deal requires the borrower to take the lender's own buildings and contents insurance.

This can however be avoided by accepting an increased rate of 4.99%.

Its table topping rate means the product is well deserving of four out five Moneyfacts stars.
