Stephen Noakes, Mortgages Director at Lloyds TSB, said:
“Our range of products is continuing to make home ownership a reality for so many first time buyers, and through innovative schemes such as Lloyds TSB's Lend a Hand, we're offering real solutions for those with smaller deposits.
“Whilst the property market is likely to continue to be challenging, we remain committed to getting things right at the start of the chain, creating liquidity in the housing market and helping more people get on to, and move up, the property ladder in 2013. These major rates cuts to our mortgage products should provide real support to customers.”
Last week Lloyds Banking Group committed to lend £6.5 billion to help customers make their first step on to the property ladder in 2013. The pledge is expected to help around 60,000 people buy their first home by the end of the year. This pledge is part of the ongoing support the Group is providing to those looking to buy their first home.
