HSBC has also launched a number of other new products such as two-year fix at 1.24%, available up to 60% loan-to-value. A £1,499 fee also applies to this product

Tracie Pearce, head of mortgages at HSBC, said these rates were the lowest the bank had ever offered.

“With mortgage rates lower than they’ve ever been before, we’re proud to introduce the lowest ever five-year fixed rate,” she said.

80% loan-to-value three-year fixed – 2.99% with £199 fee

85% loan-to-value three-year fixed – 3.29% with £199 fee
