Stuart Beattie, Head of Mortgages, said: “We want to continue to offer great mortgage options for those looking to buy a home for the first time, and also give remortgaging homeowners the opportunity to secure a great deal, at a lower rate, bringing down the cost of their monthly repayments.

“Every penny counts as we move towards an expensive time of the year for most households, and reducing the amount being paid out on a mortgage each month can be extremely fruitful, with home loan repayments often people’s biggest outgoing.”
