HSBC has swept the competition aside with the launch of its new discounted variable rate mortgage .

Offering a rate of just 1.99% for two years, this discounted deal is the only product of its kind available at a price below 2%.

Available at the affordable fee of £999, this deal requires a minimum deposit of 40%.

The maximum advance has been reduced to £250K, while an incentive of free legal fees is applicable to remortgages in England and Wales.

Borrowers in Scotland and Wales will receive help towards their fees, up to a maximum of £400.

The stunning rate and reasonable fee combine to earn this product the full complement of five out of five Moneyfacts stars.
