Barclays cuts rates and launches BTL five-year fix
Barclays has cut rates on 15 of its residential fixes, including five-year rates at 60 per cent loan to value (LTV).


The changes come into effect from tomorrow, 13 August.

On the residential five-year fixes, rates have been lowered to 1.7 per cent, down from 1.74 per cent, at 60 per cent loan to value (LTV) and have been cut to 1.74 per cent, down from 1.79 per cent at 75 per cent LTV.  For LTVs of 85 per cent, five-year residential fixes were lowered to 1.99 per cent, down from 2.05 per cent.

All of the five-year residential fixed rates apply to loans of £5k to £1m with a fee of £999. 

At 60 per cent LTV, the nearest competitor is Lloyds Bank at 1.7 per cent for a remortgage and HSBC is offering 1.71 per cent for a first purchase and remortgage, according to Moneyfacts. At 75 per cent LTV, Post Office is the nearest competitor at 1.75 per cent for first purchase and remortgages.
