Abbey has adjusted its fixed-rate mortgages, introducing reductions of up to 0.6 per cent, it has announced.
The lender made the move yesterday, unveiling new rates for its two-year homeowner loans that carry loan-to-values (LTVs) of 60 and 75 per cent.
And Abbey also cut rates “significantly” on its 85 per cent LTV deal, as it launched what it described as “market-leading” deals.
Those wishing to take out a two-year fixed-rate mortgage at 60 per cent LTV can now expect to pay a rate of 4.29 per cent, while the 85 per cent LTV three-year fixed loan carries a charge of 5.84 per cent.
“We now offer market-leading trackers and fixed rates, including some very competitive rates for lower-deposit customers,” mortgage director Nici Audhlam-Gardiner stated.
Recent figures from the Council of Mortgage Lenders revealed that the number of mortgages approved by lenders in October increased when compared to figures from the previous month.
