Yorkshire BS has laid down the gauntlet to the rest of the mortgage market with the introduction of two new two year fixed rate mortgages.

Both products offer a cashback incentive of 1% of the advance, while the best rate on offer is 3.89% to 28 February 2012, and is available up to £250K advance for house purchase only.

While not the market leading rate at 75% loan-to-value, a low fee of £495 in combination with the cashback incentive of between £250 and £2,500 (depending on the advance), makes this product excellent value for money.

A terrific option for borrowers with a 25% deposit looking to purchase a home, this product earns the maximum five out of five Moneyfacts stars.
