The lender has added a new two-year tracker rate for both residential and BTL, complementing its current lifetime tracker range. Rates on the new two-year tracker now start at 0.99% over Investec Bank base rate (IBBR) currently 4.50% at 65% loan-to-value (LTV), with a two-year BTL tracker rate up to 70% LTV at 1.49% over IBBR.
