Barclays managing director of mortgages Andy Gray says: “We are continuing to look for ways in which we can boost the UK mortgage market, giving homebuyers access to even better mortgage deals. Today’s changes are particularly designed to help first time buyers, cutting the rate on our higher LTV mortgages and also launching a new range of NewBuy products.”
