NatWest lower 2-year fixed rates

Meanwhile they are increasing the rates on two of their 5-year fixed deals at 60% loan to value.

With a £995 product fee the rate is increasing from 2.88% to 2.95%, while without a fee it is rising from 3.19% and 3.25%.

Mark Bullard, head of sales at NatWest Intermediary Solutions, said: “It’s been a great start to the year reflecting the confidence intermediaries currently have for the mortgage market’s prospects.

These changes enable us to achieve a good balance of business in terms of LTV and volume.”
