GE Money launches mortgage deals and cuts rates by up to 0.9%

GE Money Home Lending is reducing rates by up to 0.9% across its mortgage range and introducing a number of new deals.

The lender is launching a two-year fixed deal with rates from 4.29% and a two-year discount product with rates starting from 3.99%.

Products that have had their rates reduced include the GEM1 discount deal at 75% LTV, which now comes with a rate of 4.49%.
