All products will move onto the Tesco Bank Standard Variable Rate (currently 3.89%) at the end of the initial fixed rate period. Early Repayment Charges may apply during the initial fixed rate period. 

David McCreadie, Managing Director at Tesco Bank, commented:

“With more customers looking to take longer-term fixed rate mortgages, I am delighted that we can offer these market-leading rates as well as reducing the rates on a selection of our 2 year, 3 year and 5 year products to help customers’ money go that little bit further.  As an extra little help, Tesco Bank Mortgage customers can also collect Clubcard points on their mortgage repayments giving them access to a great range of Clubcard Reward Partners for savings on family fun, travel and eating out.”

Tesco Bank Mortgage customers can collect one Clubcard point for every £4 on their monthly repayments.*** Customers also have the flexibility to make regular or lump sum overpayments of up to 20% of the outstanding balance each year during the initial rate period, without having to pay an Early Repayment Charge. All house purchase and remortgage products from Tesco Bank also include a free standard valuation.

The full range of Tesco Mortgage products for home buyers and those remortgaging is available at http://www.tescobank.com/mortgages
