The Nationwide Building Society has set the lowest-ever mortgage rate as the cost of home loans continues to plummet for those with a lot of capital.
The UK’s largest investment fund cut the two-year fixed rate for borrowers with 40 percent deposits to 0.87 percent in a series of cuts across its range of products.
The rate on a 40 percent escrow mortgage, which comes with a hefty £ 1,499 commission and is available to displaced persons as well as those in re-mortgages, was previously 0.91 percent.
Nationwide, the UK’s largest construction company, has introduced a mortgage interest rate of 0.87%.
This is currently the cheapest non-tracked term mortgage on the market for homeowners.
However, it doesn’t quite beat TSB’s two-year fixing for remortgagors, which comes with a 0.84% interest rate and a lower £ 994 fee.
Earlier in early August, Halifax set a rate of 0.83%, but this rate is no longer available.
Mortgage deals are now holding onto on average only 21 daysso borrowers need to act quickly.
Lenders made the most of the recent housing boom and their ability to borrow money cheaply from the Bank of England at a base rate of 0.1 percent.
Record low interest rates are being introduced for those with 40 percent deposits or equity capital to help banks and construction companies attract low-risk borrowers.
However, despite the low overall rate, it is important to consider both the commission and the rate, especially when it comes to a short-term trade.
You can use this money the true value of a mortgage calculator for comparing deals by both rates and commissions.
The Nationwide rate cut is also beneficial for those with fewer deposits.
It introduced a competitive rate of 2.99% on a 5 percent mortgage with a three-year maturity, although it is only available to those moving home, not new buyers.
The rate, which includes a £ 999 levy, has been reduced by 0.25%.
Rates are declining across the board as lenders seek to attract more borrowers
Initial buyers can also access the 2.99% rate, but with a two-year expiration date and a higher £ 1,499 commission.
For those with mid-sized deposits, highlights included a two-year flat rate on a 25 percent re-mortgage product, down 0.13% to 0.99% with a £ 999 fee.
Henry Jordan, director of mortgages at Nationwide, said: “These recent cuts indicate that the Society is introducing the lowest mortgage rates ever, which will offer those looking for a new deal one of the best rates available.
“However, all loans have been reduced to value levels, so whether someone buys a new home, re-mortgages their existing property, or receives an additional down payment to improve their home, we have a range of mortgages on offer according to their needs ”.
Some of the biggest rate cuts made by Nationwide were in its tracking range.
For example, its two-year tracking rate for those with 40 percent deposits has been lowered 0.40 percent to 0.99 percent, with a £ 999 fee.
Tracked mortgages charge the interest rate a certain percentage above the Bank of England base rate, and it can go up or down accordingly.
The base rate is 0.1 percent and will stay the same, or rise rather than decline, so homeowners will not see their rate drop.
A cheap tracker mortgage is a good rate only if you are comfortable with the initial rate and believe that the base rate will remain at 0.1% for the set period.
