Metro Bank has reduced its rates across its 2, 3 and 5-year-fixed residential range, as well as its 2 and 5-year tracker products.

For residential mortgages under £2m the new rates are now available from 1.69% for a 5-year fixed up to 65% LTV, 1.79% for a 5-year fixed up to 70% LTV and 1.84% for a 5-year fixed up to 75% LTV.

For both its 2 and 3-year fixes, rates have been reduced by up to 0.20% and are now available from 1.89%. The bank’s 2 and 5-year trackers up to 85% LTV have also been cut by 0.10%, with rates now starting from 1.84% and the 5-year tracker benefitting from a three year Early Repayment Charge.

What does the Autumn Budget have in store for buy-to-let landlords?

Charles Morley, director mortgage distribution at Metro Bank, said: “We’re here to show our broker partners and customers that we mean business. With increasing uncertainty about a potential rate rise, we want to give people peace of mind by providing competitive rates, alongside the flexibility to overpay by up to 20% per year.”

The news follows last month’s announcement that, in a move to reward loyalty, it has eliminated product fees for existing residential mortgage customers, when switching to a new product at the end of their term for loans up to £2m.

Jeremy Duncombe, director at L&G Mortgage Club, added: “This is another strong move from Metro Bank. Competitive rates like these, coupled with their hard work to deliver good service, means today’s news is likely to go down extremely well among brokers up and down the country.”
