Nationwide brings back the 125% mortgage

Nationwide has launched a new 125 per cent mortgage, for those in negative equity and wanting to move house. The building society described the product as a ‘niche’ offer and said that the new mortgage would only be available to existing mortgage holders and would allow homeowners to ‘carry over’ their negative equity. Experts say it could help people stick in their homes who need to move, and expect other lenders will launch their own versions in the coming months.
