New Home Mortgage Types, Rates and Best Deals Currently Available

Coventry Building Society is cutting selected fixed rates for residential purchase by up to 0.28 percentage points, continuing the trend set by other major lenders in recent days.

The mutual lender has reduced the cost of its deals available through brokers for new customers and existing borrowers looking for a new rate. It is offering a two-year fixed-rate deal at 5.05% (65% LTV) with a £999 fee. The equivalent five-year rate is at 4.58%.

Also new from Coventry is a fee-free first-time buyer product for those with at least 20% deposit at 5.38% with £500 cashback on completion.

Santander’s new rates, available direct and through brokers, start from 4.82% with a £999 fee for a two-year fixed rate remortgage deal. This is for borrowers with at least 40% equity in their property. Equivalent two-year deals for home purchase start from 4.8%.

More lenders are expected to trim down fixed rates in the coming days in response to the positive news on inflation this week, and the growing expectation that an interest rate cut by the Bank of England is on the cards.
