The results of the election certainly left the mortgage market … well exactly where it was before the election, but with the added bonus that everyone feels we were in a period of stability.

So much so that with renewed confidence that interest rates will remain low for some time, more and more borrowers don’t want to lock into inflexible long-term deals. Lenders are responding with new competitive variable-rate products, which are proving more and more popular.

TSB are currently leading the way, offering 2 year tracker rates as low as 1.09% (tracking at 0.59% above the 0.5% base rate).

The bank who recently sold to Spain’s Sabadell Bank have also expanded their buy to let range and are currently offering five year fixed rates at an incredible 3.49% for borrowers with a40% deposit!

I think it is safe to say that whatever your politics, the returning government has certainly brought with them confidence in the mortgage market. Long may the rate war continue!
