Nationwide reduces mortgage rates

A leading UK building society has reduced the rates featured on several of its fixed-rate and tracker mortgages.

Nationwide's changes mean it is now offering products including a two-year fixed rate with a £599 fee and a starting rate of 6.48 per cent, as well as the same type of deal without a fee for a rate of 6.88 per cent.

The lender has also introduced a new tracker deal with a £1,499 fee and a rate starting at 5.78 per cent.

Matthew Carter, divisional director for mortgages at Nationwide, said: "As a building society we always aim to offer our members the best possible deals.

"These price changes reinforce our message that, despite tougher market conditions, we remain very much open for business."

Recent research from Nationwide found that the pace of house prices in the UK fell during June.

Prices fell by 0.9 per cent last month, while the average cost of a property stood at £172,415.
