The new range consists of two, three and five-year fixed rate mortgages with rates starting from 2.25 per cent.

The bank is offering £500 cashback on the new products, along with a free valuation and no product fee with LTVs ranging from 80 to 95 per cent.

Products at 95 per cent LTV will also be added to the existing range of purchase and remortgage deals with fixed terms of two, three and five years with no product fees.
