HSBC announced cuts beginning Thursday 4th January on its residential mortgage interest rates, with several falling below 5% for the first time since April 2023. The largest drop was to its 10-year fixed rate remortgage deals, one of which is now sub 4%. The bank also announced a five-year-fixed remortgage deal, also sub 4%.
From Thursday, HSBC’s two-year fixed rate for remortgages will be below 5% for the first time since early June last year, for those with at least 40% equity in their home.
Halifax also cut the price of its two-year fixed-rate remortgage to below 5% on Tuesday, and Leeds Building Society and several smaller specialist lenders also announced rate cuts.
Many homeowners who had to take out new mortgages last year experienced a significant increase in their monthly repayments as they moved off cheap deals taken out several years earlier. However, with many lenders dropping rates, now is a great time to shop around and see if you can get a better deal on your mortgage!
