Metro Bank has greeted the new year by reducing rates across its five-year fixed residential and buy-to-let (BTL) product ranges.
The challenger bank has also lowered rates across its two- and three-year fixed buy-to-let and two-year tracker ranges.
Craig Donaldson, CEO at Metro Bank, said: “Our competitive rates and fast turnaround times – combined with benefits such as allowing 20% overpayments for residential customers and top-slicing for BTL customers – means we're hitting the ground running this year and are ready to support brokers and borrowers up and down the country.”
Metro Bank has also introduced a new 60% LTV across its five-year fixed range and has reduced rates by up to 30bps, with core range rates now starting from 1.79%.
The bank has also slashed rates across its two- and three-year buy-to-let fixed and two-year tracker ranges, with rates now beginning at 2.39%.
