Saffron BS has given borrowers umpteen reasons to be cheerful with the launch of its new fixed rate mortgage .

Available for house purchase only, the rate of 5.89% to 30.11.2012 is a market leader in its field, the lowest rate up to 90% loan to value with widespread availability.

A fee of £995 will not break the bank either.

Applications must come either direct or through Saffron Mortgage Brokers.

However, for a borrower requiring a high loan to value who is happy to apply direct to the lender, it is a product to cherish.

As a result, this deal earns the maximum five out of five Moneyfacts stars.
