Nationwide Cuts 90% and 95% Mortgage Products

by | Friday 14th Apr 2023 | Mortgage News

Following on from our blog post yesterday about Coventry Building Society lowering 90% and 95% mortgage products for first time buyers, Nationwide building society have also announced that they will be reducing rates on their own 90% and 95% mortgage products. These new rate reductions at high loan to values (LTV) are a great sign that confidence is returning to the mortgage market after a tumultuous few months and years. Reducing higher loan to value loans means that borrowers such as first time buyers with low deposits of 5% and 10% will have greater access to competitive rates. Here is a breakdown of the changes that are coming in from Nationwide.

5% and 10% Deposit Mortgages From Nationwide

As of Friday the 14th of April 2023, Nationwide have cut several of their fixed products at 90% and 95% LTV by up to 0.20%. For new customers moving home, some of these reductions are:  

  • 5-year fixed deal at 90% LTV, with a £999 fee at 4.44%
  • 3-year fixed deal at 90% LTV, with a £999 fee at 4.69%
  • 2-year fixed deal at 95% LTV, with a £999 fee at 5.29%

For first time buyers, Nationwide also offer these newly reduced products which come with £500 cashback:

  • 5-year fixed deal at 90% LTV, with a £999 fee at 4.44%
  • 2-year fixed deal at 90% LTV, with a £999 fee at 4.89%
  • 3-year fixed deal at 95% LTV, with a £999 fee at 5.24%

For people looking to switch mortgage deals:

  • 5-year fixed deal at 60% LTV, with a £999 fee at 3.89%
  • 2-year fixed deal at 75% LTV, with a £999 fee at 4.24%
  • 10-year fixed deal at 60% LTV, with no fee at 4.29%

What Nationwide Have Said About The Reductions

Commenting on these dramatic rate reductions for higher LTV loans, Nationwide have said:

“We are making reductions on our higher loan to value products to support those with a small deposit who are looking to buy their first home or move to a new property. We have also made further reductions to our switcher products where existing members benefit from our pricing pledge that those switching to a new deal will continue to benefit from a rate which is the same or better than the equivalent remortgage product.”
