Kensington has also reduced arrangement fees across all 90% LTV products from £1,299 to £999. Kensington’s lowest Select 90% LTV for its two-, three-, and five-year fixed rates are now 6.89%, 6.59%, and 6.44% respectively, all of which include a £999 fee. Rates on Kensington’s Hero Mortgage range remain 10bps below those of its Select range.
