The new rates start from 1.93 per cent for a two-year fixed loan at 70 per cent LTV with a £995 fee.

The lender will also launch a two-year fix at 1.98 per cent at 75 per cent LTV with a £995 fee.

Post Office Money is also launching a three-year fixed rate loan at 2.28 per cent at 60 per cent LTV, with a £995 fee and a five-year fix at 2.78 per cent at 70 per cent with the same fee amount.
