Yorkshire BS has leapt to the top of the fixed rate mortgage class with its latest product review.

Most of its fixed rate deals have seen their rates reduced with the new first time buyer mortgage priced at 5.39% to 30 September 2013 particularly appealing.

It has no fee and includes incentives of a £500 rebate, free legal fees and free valuation.

If borrowers are willing to pay the slightly higher rate of 5.49%, they can also receive 12 months free buildings and contents insurance.

An excellent product for first time buyers with the required 10% deposit, this deal has been awarded the full five out of five Moneyfacts stars.
