The Co-operative Bank has revealed a new discounted variable rate mortgage that wipes the floor with the competition.

A rate of 3.24% represents a 1.00% discount off the standard variable rate and is the lowest available in the whole of Great Britain.

Open to borrowers at 75% loan to value, the fee of £995 may be higher than that attached to some discounted deals in the market.

However, the terrific rate in combination with incentives for remortgages of free legal fees and a free valuation means the product easily ranks amongst best available in its field.

The product has been awarded four out of five Moneyfacts stars.
