The product fee on the two-year fixes is set at 5.0 per cent and interest coverage ratios (are calculated at two percentage points above initial rates.

“With a range of different indicators suggesting that the UK economic outlook is strengthening, the stabilisation of swap rates has continued and, as a result, we’ve been able to again reduce rates on some of our key products.”
