Aaron Strutt, product director at Trinity Financial, says: “Some of the lenders are starting to lower the cost of their cheapest rates and Santander is trying to attract borrowers looking for larger mortgage loans.
"If you would prefer longer-term security, Santander has a 1.30% five-year fix for purchases and a 1.38% five-year fix for remortgages. The arrangement fee is £999, and applicants will need a 40% deposit to qualify."
