Woolwich mortgages

Woolwich mortgage is a division of Barclays Bank plc, and has a range of mortgage products to cover first-time buyers, moving home, remortgages and buy-to-let mortgages.

The lender also offers a mortgage reserve that acts as an overdraft enabling you to make the necessary investments in your home-life. For those looking to buy abroad, Barclays buying abroad can help with what can be a daunting process and covers Europe, Dubai, South Africa and more.

The 80 per cent LTV range of Woolwich mortgages recently saw their rates cut; the two year fixed rate mortgage being cut 0.21 per cent to 4.38 percent, and the three year and five year deals being cut by 0.10 per cent to 4.79 and 5.49 respectively.

What's more, Barclays also introduced a 'drop-lock' facility for new mortgage customers. This gives borrowers who initially choose a tracker or offset mortgage the chance to switch to a fixed rate deal in the future, without incurring any early repayment charges. This is an excellent option for borrowers looking for more stability once the Bank of England Base Rate looks likely to increase again.
