Northern Rock cuts mortgage rates across its range


Northern Rock has reduced mortgage rates both across its core residential and Buy To Let ranges, and its selection of Intermediary Exclusive products.

First time buyers will benefit from many of the changes as Northern Rock continues to offer support to those with smaller deposits. 2-year Everyday fixed rate mortgages at 85% LTV (15% deposit required) with no product fee are now available from just 4.38%.

The lender has also made a number of reductions to its ’with fee’ products, for customers who choose to pay a product fee in order to access a lower interest rate. 2 Year Fixed rates with a £995 fee start from 2.99% up to 70% LTV (30% deposit).

For borrowers who are looking to fix their interest rate over a longer period Northern Rock also offers competitively priced 3-Year and 5-Year Fixed rates. 5 Year Fixed rates start at 3.99% with £995 fee up to 70% LTV (30% deposit).

Northern Rock also continues to offer Fee Saver Option (FSO) products for consumers who are looking to keep their fee costs as low as possible. The lender has simplified the pricing on its Fee Saver Options, with standardised premiums of 0.45% on 2-year products, 0.40% on 3-year products and 0.35% on 5-year products. Remortgage customers will also benefit from Northern Rock’s incentive of a free basic valuation and free standard legal costs.

Northern Rock has made several improvements to its BTL product range in recent weeks, and has now made rate reductions of up to 0.70% on its BTL Fixed rates and Trackers.

Buy to Let Fixed rates for customers choosing to pay a £1,995 product fee start from 3.89% at 60% LTV (40% deposit). Borrowers with a 30% deposit (70% LTV) can opt for a 2-Year Everyday Fixed rate mortgage with a £1,995 fee at 4.10%.

Alongside the changes to its core product range, the lender has also improved the Fee Saver Options within its range of mortgage products available exclusively through Northern Rock’s intermediary partners. A 2-year FSO exclusive to brokers at 70% LTV (requiring a 30% deposit) is now available from 3.25%, while the equivalent 3-year product is available at 3.64%.

Everyday mortgages offer customers simple, straightforward mortgage deals with competitive rates and the ability to make overpayments of up to 10% each year, as well as the option to apply for payment holidays. Northern Rock continues to operate its mortgage product range within the constraints of the competitive measures agreed with the European Commission.
