Jon Cooper, head of mortgages at Aldermore, comments: “We’re delighted to announce improvements across our mortgage range to better support prospective and existing homeowners and landlords, especially when so many people are facing stark challenges compared to this time last year.

“Aldermore is always here to help those overlooked by the bigger high street banks, getting finance where it’s needed and helping more people to go for it in life and in business.”


Gen H switches from SVR to base rate tracker

First-time buyer specialist Gen H has swapped from a Standard Variable Rate (SVR) to a base rate tracker.

The SVR was 7.5 per cent and the base rate tracker is the base rate plus three per cent. This brings the latter to 6.5 per cent.

The lender said the decision was take to “provide greater transparency” to customers and the change applies to all new business.

It continued that due to the lower reversionary rate, it had revisited its mortgage rate stress assumption to help bolster affordability.

The lender has also cut two-year fixed rates, with two-year fixed rates with £999 fee between 60 and 80 per cent LTV starting from 4.97 per cent, whilst fee-free products begin from 5.19 per cent.

Will Rice, Gen H CEO said, “We’re always looking for ways to empower our customers with the knowledge they need to make the right financial decisions for themselves.

“Replacing our SVR with a tracker reversionary rate will help customers better understand the cost of their mortgage and how market trends could impact them. This is another way we’re setting a new standard for transparency in the mortgage market.”

Pete Dockar, Gen H’s commercial director, added: “As the mortgage industry prepares for the higher standards of the FCA’s Consumer Duty, we believe the opacity of traditional SVRs will be increasingly challenged.

“Tracker rates represent a readily understood, fair and unambiguous alternative to SVRs that is especially important in the current economic climate.”
