Tesco Bank's 2yr, 3yr, 5yr Fixed Rate Mortgage, and two year base rate tracker provide customers with a choice of straightforward fees. In addition to good value and great service, customers taking out a mortgage with Tesco Bank will also receive a 'thank-you' with Clubcard points as they repay their mortgage, collecting one point for every £4 on their monthly mortgage repayments*.

Announcing the new rates, David McCreadie, Managing Director of Banking, commented:

"I am delighted that these rate reductions make Tesco Bank mortgages some of the most competitive on the market. We want customers to be able to choose from a range of mortgages that combine great rates, good service with the 'thank you' of Clubcard points, and believe our new products allow customers to do just that".

Tesco Bank mortgage products are straightforward:

  • All provide customers with the flexibility to make regular or lump sum overpayments of up to 20% of the outstanding balance each year during the initial rate period, without having to pay an Early Repayment Charge.
  • Customers opting for a tracker mortgage can take advantage of a ' switch and fix ' facility that allows them to move to a fixed rate if they require greater financial certainty. **
  • Customers can apply for up to two payment holidays per year***
  • Those remortgaging will benefit from free standard legal fees and the first standard valuation.

All products will move onto the Tesco Bank Standard Variable Rate (currently 4.24%) at the end of the initial fixed or tracker rate period. Early Repayment Charges apply during the initial rate period.
