H&R revamps range

A new 3-year discount mortgage at up to 80% loan to value has an initial interest rate of 2.55%. Reverting to the Society’s Standard Variable Rate (SVR), currently 5.64%, the overall cost for comparison is 4.8% APR.

Also new is a 3-year fixed rate mortgage at 2.99%, with an overall cost for comparison of 5.0% APR. It is also available at up to 80% LTV.

There is a rate cut of 0.34% off the existing 2-year discount mortgage at up to 85% LTV, which is now charging an initial 2.75% (overall cost for comparison is 5.2% APR).

And there is a 0.10% cut, to 3.79%, off the residential 2-year fixed rate mortgage at up to 90% LTV (the overall cost for comparison is 5.4% APR). All other terms for the existing mortgages are unchanged.

Both the new mortgages and those with rate cuts have the same competitive fees – £295 for arrangement and £695 on completion. There is a free valuation and, like all Hinckley & Rugby mortgages, there are no Early Repayment Charges (ERCs).

Hinckley & Rugby chief executive Chris White said: “We’ve sharpened rates and launched two new mortgages to keep the Society to the forefront of what is a very competitive market.

“Buyers don’t only get great rates from Hinckley & Rugby, they also enjoy outstanding service delivered by our experienced mortgages staff.”
