Young people looking to get on the first rung of the property ladder may wish to take first mortgage advice if they are to secure one of a range of new deals being offered.

The Co-operative Bank and Brittania are once more leading the way by making a pair of attractive mortgages available.

A five-year mortgage with a fixed-rate of 3.99 per cent and a two-year deal with a rate of 2.95 per cent could both appeal to potential first-time buyers.

In order to apply, people must have a 25 per cent deposit for the property they wish to purchase and be prepared to pay an application fee of £999.

"The new products form part of our wider mortgage range, which includes both fixed and variable products and offers something for everyone from first-time buyers to those looking to move," explains John Hughes, business leader for retail products at the Co-operative.

First-time buyers interested in the deals should follow the national trend revealed by unbiased.co.uk recently, which showed those making their first purchase are most likely to ask for mortgage advice.
