Virgin Money has launched a brand-new innovative mortgage product – Fix and Switch – offering customers the security and certainty of an interest rate fixed for five years, but with the flexibility of being able to switch to another product with no early repayment charge after just two years.

Fix and Switch launches today and is available exclusively via any intermediary registered with Virgin Money. The product is available for residential purchase customers at 85% and 90% LTV.

The options available at launch are:

These fee-saver deals also offer customers a cashback incentive of £500. Customers will have their affordability assessment for Fix and Switch based on a five-year deal.

David Hollingworth, Associate Director at L&C Mortgages said: “The mortgage market has provided so many ups and downs in the last couple of years that it’s understandable that borrowers will be struggling to decide on the best approach.

“Virgin Money’s innovative product offers an alternative and welcome solution to those that feel there’s room for rates to improve over the next couple of years but don’t want to be caught out if the outlook shifts again. There will no doubt be customers attracted to the ongoing certainty of rate if required but with the flexibility to review in 2 years.”

Craig Calder, head of secured lending at Virgin Money said: “In today’s higher interest rate environment, many mortgage borrowers are looking for long-term payment certainty, but don’t want to be tied in for the long-term. Fix and Switch is the perfect solution for them, providing the certainty of a five-year fixed rate with the flexibility of a two-year ERC if rates begin to fall.”

Further details of Fix and Switch are available at Virgin Money for Intermediaries Link opens in a new window or through a Virgin Money Business Development Manager.
