HSBC Starts 2013 With Great Rates for First Time Buyers

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwire) -- 01/02/13 -- HSBC is marking the start of 2013 with new competitive mortgage rates for customers with a 10% deposit.

The rate changes launched today (2nd Jan) include:

--  90% LTV 2-year-fixed - 4.19% 
--  90% LTV 5-year-fixed - 4.69% 
--  90% LTV tracker - 4.19% above base rate (current rate GBP 4.69%) 

All of HSBC's 90% LTV rates are currently Fee-free(i) for HSBC current account holders or have a GBP 599 booking fee and a valuation fee payable for non-current account holders.

Peter Dockar, HSBC Head of Mortgages, said: 'We worked hard last year to help UK borrowers with the aspiration to own their own home and we will continue to offer competitive rates to both first time buyers and existing homeowners.'

In addition, HSBC continues to offer competitive rates for customers with a larger deposit or equity, including:

--  60% LTV 3-year-fixed - 2.79% with GBP 999 fee 

HSBC will also maintain its lowest ever two-year fixed rate of 1.99%. Borrowers with a 40% deposit or equity can secure the rate for a fee of GBP 1,999, or GBP 1,499 for HSBC current account holders.

Rachel Springall, finance expert at, said: 'HSBC's new deals aimed at first-time buyers provide potential borrowers with competitive rates coupled with a reasonable fee at a high loan-to-value percentage.

'The two-year fixed deal at 4.19% is amongst the top deals in that sector and the five-year fixed deal at 4.69% is the best rate with no fee. These deals are also very competitive for new customers where a reasonable GBP 599 fee applies. It's fantastic to see existing customers rewarded with a fee free option - first-time buyers in particular will welcome any help towards set up costs.'

Notes to Editors

HSBC mortgages are only available directly from HSBC - they are not available from brokers or any other intermediaries.

(i) Fee-free means: No booking fee, no standard valuation fee, no completion fee.

HSBC will cover the cost of one standard valuation where this is required by HSBC as part of the mortgage application. Additionally, where it is a straight forward transfer from another lender, HSBC also pays the standard legal costs.
