Lenders reveal reduced mortgage rates

NatWest and its subsidiary the Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) have reduced their mortgage rates for new and existing customers.

Available from today, the reductions – which range from 0.25 per cent to 0.7 per cent – apply to the lenders’ two, three and five-year fixed-rate deals.

A two-year deal at 60 per cent loan-to-value (LTV) and a £799 fee is on offer at a rate of 3.99 per cent, while five-year options at 90 per cent LTV with a £499 fee now carry a 6.49 per cent interest charge.

Director of branch mortgages Andy Fell stated that the range gives the lenders a “great opportunity” to help borrowers get a low-rate mortgage.

“We remain committed to helping our customers and supporting them by offering a range of competitive deals during these challenging economic conditions,” he added.

Homeowners who are considering switching their mortgage as part of a debt management plan may be attracted to the 90 per cent LTV offer, as the Council of Mortgage Lenders has stated the supply of such mortgages is diminishing.
