Property developer Barratt Homes said that now is one of the best times for securing a mortgage for many years.

Michelle Storer, Barratt Homes’ sales director, says that interest rates are likely to remain low in a post-referendum world.

She said: ‘This means for some people it is a great time to look at getting a mortgage. There are some fantastic new developments being built and more people than ever can look at potentially buying their own new home.’
