Meanwhile, 95 per cent LTV products will be cut by 0.4 per cent, to 3.24 per cent with a £999 fee and 3.64 per cent with no fee.
In terms of two-year trackers, the 85 per cent LTV mortgage will be cut by 0.2 per cent, giving a new rate of 1.94 per cent with a £999 fee, and 2.34 per cent with no fee.
For three-year fixes of up to 85 per cent LTV, the rate is due to be cut by 0.2 per cent to 2.19 per cent with £999 fee, and 2.49 per cent with no fee.
In the five-year fix suite, the 60 per cent product will be reduced by 0.15 per cent, coming in at 1.94 per cent with the £999 fee, and 2.14 per cent with no fee.
The 95 per cent LTV five-year fix will have 0.4 per cent chopped off, leaving a rate of 4.14 per cent with a £999 fee, and 4.34 with zero fee.
Nationwide director of mortgages Henry Jordan comments: “The changes announced today offer improved choices across our range and the rates are equally available to new customers and to existing members switching product with us.”
