Tesco Bank introduces new mortgage rates for home buyers

Tesco Bank is helping more customers make a move on the property ladder by introducing a selection of new 2, 3 and 5 year fixed rate mortgage products for home buyers.

The new rates, which are available to customers purchasing a home, are among the most competitive in the market and include:

  • 1.89% for the 60% LTV fixed for 5 years with £995 product fee
  • 2.14% for the 60% LTV fixed for 5 years with no product fee
  • 1.94% for the 80% LTV fixed for 2 years with no product fee
  • 2.13% for the 85% LTV fixed for 2 years with no product fee

David McCreadie, Managing Director at Tesco Bank, commented:

“We want to make it easier for customers to buy their home, and our new selection of competitive mortgage rates helps to make a new house purchase more affordable for customers as they take their next steps on the property ladder.”

Tesco Bank mortgage products reward the loyalty of customers with Clubcard points as they repay their 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.

The following new range of mortgage products for new home buyers are available through Tesco Bank and Tesco Mortgage Intermediaries.

Representative example: A mortgage of £192,000 with an assumed start date of  01/11/2016 payable over 17 years initially on a fixed rate for 2 years at 1.99% and then on our current variable rate of 3.89% for the remaining 15 years would require 24 monthly payments of £1,110.11 and 180 monthly payments of £1,267.44.

The total amount payable would be £254,897.57 made up of the loan amount plus interest of £62,782.57, a product fee of £0, a valuation fee of £0 and booking fee of £0. Please refer to your Mortgage Illustration for details on other fees payable on your mortgage.
