For two-year 95% LTV fixed deals, the rate will rise from 4.09% to 4.49%, while Nationwide’s three-year products in the range will increase to 4.89% from 4.59%. Five-year fixed rates at 95% LTV will be bumped up from 4.89% to 5.09%.
The lender has made a number of radical changes to its proposition of late, including an amendment to its retirement age definition and a relaunch back into the restricted resale market. It has also introduced a ‘genuine bargain price lending’ option for homeowners looking to sell their properties at less than the open market value.
