The bank has launched a range of fee-free mortgages with a maximum loan-to-value (LTV) of 90%, including a market-leading lifetime tracker. The bank is reserving £250m of its lending for first-time buyers until the end of the year.

The mortgages include a two-year fixed-rate loan at 4.49%, a five-year fix at 4.89%, and the lifetime tracker, which tracks at 4.09% above bank base rate. For those with a 15% deposit there is a two-year fix at 4.29%, a five-year fix at 4.69% and a lifetime tracker at 3.49% above base.
