first direct has stepped up to the mortgage plate by reducing the rate on its variable tracker rate mortgage deal.

Despite already being the market leading rate at 65% loan-to-value, by reducing the rate for term by 0.10% to 2.29%, its position in the market has been strengthened even further.

A reduction in the fee from £499 to £99 also significantly heightens its appeal.

The deal is so good it now also beats the rates available at the lower loan-to-value of 60%.

A truly outstanding mortgage deal, this product earns the maximum five out of five Moneyfacts stars.
