In a communication to all subscribing mortgage brokers, TSB has recently announced some pretty substantial cuts to their mortgage interest rates across various parts of their residential mortgage product range. These reductions extend to both shared ownership and shared equity mortgages, marking a positive development for both first-time buyers looking to get onto the property ladder and existing homeowners looking to remortgage.
Shared Ownership Rate Reductions From TSB
The most notable adjustments come in the form of reductions of up to 0.85% on shared ownership and shared equity loans. TSB’s two-year shared equity loans for both movers and first-time buyers, with a loan-to-value (LTV) ratio of up to 60% (40% deposit), now start at an attractive 5.04%. This deal also comes with a £500 cashback incentive which is really attractive for first-time buyers who may be a little strapped for cash!
First-time buyers and movers opting for two-year purchase fixed-rate deals, also with an LTV of up to 60%, can benefit from rates as low as 4.99%. Additionally, for those considering a five-year fixed-rate remortgage with a LTV of up to 60%, rates now begin at 5.09%, accompanied by a £300 cashback too.
The reductions extend across various mortgage products, including house purchase two-year fixes at different LTV levels. For instance, rates for house purchase two-year fixes up to 85% LTV have been reduced by up to 0.30%, hopefully making homeownership goals a little more affordable for those with smaller deposits. Similarly, house purchase three-year fixes up to 75% LTV have seen reductions of up to 0.30%, providing a bit more stability potentially, for those looking over a slightly longer term.
Shared Equity Mortgages From TSB
TSB has also addressed the needs of those considering shared ownership and shared equity options, with rates reduced by up to 0.85%. This move reflects the bank’s commitment to supporting a diverse range of homeownership models, acknowledging the increasing popularity of shared ownership arrangements and the increasing struggles of getting a straightforward mortgage in this day and age.
TSB Extend Product End Dates
Another notable feature of TSB’s announcement is the extension of product end dates to the end of March 2024. This extension provides potential homeowners with a more significant window of opportunity to take advantage of the reduced rates and favourable terms.
