Britannia slashes fixed rate mortgage rates

31 August 2005
Britannia Building Society has announced a drop in the mortgage rate of its ten year fixed rate mortgage.

The new deal, available from August 26, will offer a market-leading rate of 4.74 per cent, a decrease of 25 base points.

Available for up to 95 per cent loan to value, the product carries an arrangement fee of £349 and a £100 administration fee, but features no compulsory insurance.

Tim Franklin, managing director of member business at Britannia, said: "Unlike other lenders who are withdrawing or increasing rates on fixed term mortgages, Britannia Building Society is offering customers the chance to get their hands on a great product with a low rate that gives homeowners the security of fixed monthly payments."

Britannia's decision marks it out from other lenders, few of whom have announced a decrease in mortgage rates, despite the Bank of England (BoE)'s Monetary Policy Committee (MPC)'s decision to lower the base rate to 4.5 per cent.
