Evening Standard - Nationwide 'out in the cold', brokers say, as it stays out of mortgage rate price war for now   Green Tick

  (16/01/2024) Nationwide Building Society, The Standard Newspaper

Brokers today said the country’s largest building society Nationwide now appears to be an outlier in the mortgage rate price war as a number of its rivals cut rates again. Nationwide has reduced the prices of its mortgages eleven times in the last fourth months, but has held firm in recent weeks as rivals began the year with what many commentators called a “price war”. All five of the other “big six” lenders - HSBC, Santander, NatWest, Barclays and Halifax owner Lloyds Banking Group - have cut rates this year.

The Standard - Mortgage shock as two major lenders raise interest rates on some products while cutting prices on others   Green Tick

  (26/03/2024) Santander Bank, The Standard Newspaper

Mortgage brokers were baffled today by a series of price moves in both directions, including two of the UK’s ‘big six’ lenders raising some rates at the same time they lowered others. Santander and Coventry Building Society cut the interest rates on a number of fixed-rate products, while Accord increased its own rates. That may be a sign that lenders may have differing views of the future outlook for the Bank of England’s own interest rates.
