Tesco Bank launches new mortgage range to help customers onto the property ladder

  • Introduction of new 95% and 90% LTV mortgage products
  • Reduction of a number of rates across both house purchase and remortgage products

Tesco Bank is set to help more customers buy their home with the launch of a new range of mortgage products. This includes 95% and 90% LTV options for both house purchases and remortgages.

This announcement comes as the bank also reduces a number of its mortgage rates, making the available products some of the most competitive on the market. 

Tesco Bank mortgage customers benefit from the bank’s commitment to outstanding customer service, competitive rates and the ability to collect Clubcard points on their monthly repayments.

Julian Hartley, Director of Mortgages, Savings and Loans said:

“We are delighted to launch a new range of mortgage products, while also reducing a number of our mortgage rates. This illustrates our continued commitment to offering our customers great value products that they can rely on. As an extra little help, Tesco Bank mortgage customers can also collect Clubcard points on their monthly mortgage repayments, giving them access to a great range of Clubcard Reward Partners”.

Clubcard points collection rates are subject to change and points will be added 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.
