HSBC ups rates; Virgin Money launches deals and amends pricing – round-up
HSBC has increased rates across new and existing borrower mortgages up to 95 per cent loan to value (LTV).

This applies across its residential and buy-to-let ranges, with rate increases of up to 0.6 per cent. 

For example, a two-year fixed purchase mortgage at 85 per cent LTV has risen in rate by 0.5 per cent to 6.29 per cent. This has a £999 fee. 

A two-year fixed remortgage at 60 per cent LTV, also with a £999 fee, is now 6.24 per cent, up from 5.79 per cent. 

For existing customers who are switching, a two-year fix at 60 per cent LTV with no fee has increased by 0.28 per cent to 5.84 per cent. 

A HSBC spokesperson said: “We’re firmly focused on supporting customers in the current environment, but, like other banks, we have had to reflect significant market movements in our mortgage rates, which changed today.”
