HSBC announces cut to mortgage rates

HSBC has announced that it is cutting rates across all its mortgage ranges for new and existing customers.

The bank said the reductions come into effect from Wednesday (8 November).

An HSBC UK spokesperson said: “We are here to support our customers and we remain committed to offering the best possible rates to all our customers. That is why we are pleased to announce cuts to mortgage rates across all our UK residential and international mortgage ranges, and across our Buy to Let range, for new and existing customers.”

The UK’s sixth largest bank has also cut rates on its residential mortgage range by 0.2% on average (between 0.05% and 0.35%).

It is also bringing back its no fee 3 Year Fixed at 95% LTV for UK Residential Home Mover and First-Time Buyer customers, both of which come with a cashback incentive of £350.

“This gives our customers who are looking to move onto or up the property ladder or are renewing a mortgage with us an additional option,” the bank said.
