HSBC launches competitive first time buyer fixed rate deals

17 September 2013 / by Isabel Buxton

There could be good news for aspiring first time buyers as HSBC launches a range of 90% loan-to-value (LTV) mortgages this month. The new range includes a 2 year fixed rate at 3.59% and a five-year fixed rate at at 4.39%.

What’s more, for a limited time only, HSBC has offered to beat the equivalent offers from eight other high street contenders HSBC claims that under its ‘First for First-Time Buyers’ initiative, they will beat or match the 90% LTV offers from eight other major high street brands: Barclays, Woolwich, Halifax, Lloyds TSB, Nationwide, NatWest, Royal Bank of Scotland and Santander (but not any of their subsidiaries).

Offers on 2 year, 5 year and tracker mortgages

This offer applies to 2 and 5 year fixed rate deals, as well as to lifetime tracker mortgages for buyers with a 10% deposit. Fees are £999 for HSBC current account customers and £1,499 for non-customers – although non-customers do have the option to open an HSBC current account and pay the same fee.

However, there are a few caveats – this offer, which runs until 3rd November 2013, only applies provided that the rival deals don't charge a booking fee of more than £999. In addition, the offer excludes any subsidiaries or other trading names of the eight providers mentioned above, and the maximum loan available is £400,000.

A repayment mortgage of £120,000 payable over 28 years and 1 month initially on a fixed rate for 2 years at 1.99% and then on the lender current variable rate of 3.69% (variable) for the remaining 26 years and 1 month would require 24 monthly payments of £465.20 and 312 monthly payments of £565.39 and one final payment of £565.19.

The total amount payable would be £189,357.67 made up of the loan amount plus interest (£68,161.67), booking fee (£999), completion fee (£30) and valuation fee (£197).
