Last week, Nationwide were the first lender to cut their mortgage rates, offering a two-year fix below 5%.  The market has not seen a two-year fix mortgage deal below 5% since June.

The lender is offering 4.99% with a £999 fee on it’s two year fix and has also cut mortgage rates on its 3 year and 5 year products.

Rate cuts have also been seen from Royal Bank of Scotland, NatWest, HSBC and Virgin Money.

People moving home, first time buyers and people needing to re-mortgage all stand to benefit from these cuts.

It is hoped that other lenders will follow suit, which would lead to a much more competitive market over the next few months.
