Yorkshire Building Society has been awarded the prize for most competitive mortgage provider by mortgage website realmortgageprovider.com.

Taking into account all the mortgage providers available, the comparison site found that Yorkshire Building Society provides 14 per cent of all the available mortgage best buys.

Iain Cornish, chief executive at the Society said: "We've reduced rates on many of our mortgages and launched new products including two new first-time buyer mortgages available from today which have no upfront fees, £500 cashback and a very competitive rate."

He added that the lender spends a lot of time researching what its consumers want in order to provide the best possible products to suit their needs and are available to the largest number of people, either by post, online, or in a branch.

This month the building society has already launched a new range of first-time buyer, products with a rate of up to 5.99 per cent on three-year and five-year fixed rates.
