In a further move that will provide consistency with its ‘standard’ mortgage range where there is a fee-paying option and a ‘Feesaver’ option, from today the bank is removing the £349 product fee from its range, taking it to zero, including on its BTL Tracker mortgage range.
The rate changes include:
Michelle Andrews, HSBC UK’s Head of Buying a Home, said: “With a significant increased demand for rented properties, the Buy To Let market has seen a sharp bounce back in recent months. With many people having changed their priorities during the Covid crisis and looking to move out of cities into new areas, renting is a great ‘try before you buy’ option, which is feeding BTL demand.
“We are lowering all rates in our Buy To Let range in addition to removing our £349 product fee, which will make mortgaging or remortgaging with HSBC UK significantly cheaper for amateur landlords.”
