Rate change: SVR increase plus new products and rate reductions

Base rate, Rate Change

4 min read

Following the Base Rate increase to 0.50% on 3 February we are implementing a partial rate change and our SVR will increase by 0.15% to 5.54%, effective 1 March 2022.

Whilst the base rate increased by 0.25% there have now been two rate increases in quick succession. We have been keen to take into consideration the interests of mortgage borrowers, especially at a time when other living costs are rising, and, being conscious of this squeeze on household budgets, have therefore agreed a partial increase.

If you have existing clients with a discount rate deal this will increase in line with the SVR change on 1 March 2022. For clients with a Base Rate tracker mortgage the 0.25% Base Rate increase will be applied from 1 March 2022, in line with the terms and conditions.

New products, changes, and rate reductions.

We have reviewed our product range and will be making the following changes:


  • Expat buy to let 80% LTV 2-year fixed at 3.59%
  • Residential 80% LTV 3-year fixed at 2.45%
  • Residential 95% LTV 3-year fixed at 3.35%


  • Residential 80% LTV 2-year discount C&I reduced 5bps to 2.10%
  • Shared ownership 2-year fixed reduced 20bps to 3.45% and 5-year fixed reduced 9bps to 3.80%
  • Holiday let 2-year fixed reduced 10bps to 3.55%
  • Expat holiday let 2-year discount reduced 35bps to 3.50%
  • Expat buy to let 2-year discount reduced 16bps to 3.19%
  • Buy to let 2-year discount reduced 40bps to 2.85%


Standard residential interest only products are increasing by 10bps:

  • 2-year discount now 2.70%
