HSBC reduces fixed rates

A leading bank has announced it is reducing the rates on a number of its mortgage deals.

HSBC is cutting rates on its fee-free two, three and five-year fixed deals by 0.56 per cent, while loans of the same length with a £799 fee are being lowered by 0.46 per cent.

Other products that have been affected by the changes include ten-year fixed rate mortgages and a special three-year deal.

Martijn van der Heijden, head of mortgages at HSBC, said: "With the cost of funding fixed rate mortgages falling over the last few weeks, we are passing on this benefit to our customers and doing all we can to keep the cost of borrowing down."

He added that the reductions could save some borrowers around £500 a year.
