Tesco Bank reduces selected mortgage rates

Tesco Bank has reduced the rates on a selection of its 2 year and 5 year fixed rate mortgage products to help customers take the next step on the property ladder.

The new rates are among some of the most competitive available and include:

  • 1.64% for the 75% LTV fixed for 2 years with no product fee
  • 1.33% for the 80% LTV fixed for 2 years with £995 product fee
  • 1.78% for the 60% LTV fixed for 5 years with £995 product fee
  • 2.19% for the 75% LTV fixed for 5 years with no product fee

David McCreadie, Managing Director at Tesco Bank, commented:

“At Tesco Bank, we are committed to helping customers make their move on the property ladder and we are delighted to reduce the rates on a selection of our 2 year and 5 year mortgage products, helping to make it more affordable for customers to buy or remortgage their home. We know that customers want to make their money go as far as possible and, as well as reducing selected rates, we are delighted to provide a little help by enabling our customers to collect Clubcard points on their mortgage repayments.”

To help customers make their money go that little bit further, 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 remortgage products from Tesco Bank also include free valuation and free conveyancing.

The following reduced mortgage products are available through Tesco Bank and Tesco Mortgage Intermediaries.

Notes to editors:

*Points are not collected on any fees or charges paid separately from monthly payments. Earn rates are subject to change.

Points are also collected on overpayments, but not on any overpayment made to pay off the mortgage in full. Clubcard points will be received within 6 weeks of payment. The Tesco Clubcard Scheme is administered by Tesco Stores Limited, Tesco House, Shire Park, Kestrel Way, Welwyn Garden City, AL7 1GA, who are responsible for fulfilling points.

Representative example: A mortgage of £169,000 with an assumed start date of  01/05/2017 payable over 15 years initially on a fixed rate for 2 years at 1.48% and then on our current variable rate of 3.89% for the remaining 13 years would require 24 monthly payments of £1,047.53 and 156 monthly payments of £1,214.93. The total amount payable would be £216,104.40 made up of the loan amount plus interest of £45,669.40, a product fee of £995, a valuation fee of £325 and booking fee of £0. Please refer to your Mortgage Illustration for details on other fees payable on your mortgage. The overall cost for comparison is 3.4% APRC Representative.
