The rate changes launched yesterday include 90% LTV 2-year-fixed – 4.19% ; 90% LTV 5-year-fixed – 4.69% and an 90% LTV tracker – 4.19% above base rate (current rate £4.69%).

All of HSBC’s 90% LTV rates are currently fee-free for HSBC current account holders or have a £599 booking fee and a valuation fee payable for non-current account holders.

Peter Dockar, HSBC head of mortgages, said: “We worked hard last year to help UK borrowers with the aspiration to own their own home and we will continue to offer competitive rates to both first time buyers and existing homeowners.”

Rachel Springall, finance expert at Moneyfacts.co.uk, said: “HSBC’s new deals aimed at first-time buyers provide potential borrowers with competitive rates coupled with a reasonable fee at a high loan-to-value percentage.

“The two-year fixed deal at 4.19% is amongst the top deals in that sector and the five-year fixed deal at 4.69% is the best rate with no fee. These deals are also competitive for new customers where a reasonable £599 fee applies. It’s fantastic to see existing customers rewarded with a fee free option – first-time buyers in particular will welcome any help towards set up costs.”
