The Co-operative Bank is running rings around its mortgage rivals with the latest reduction of its mortgage rates.

Its two year fixed rate mortgage has dropped to 2.95%, leaving it level with the best mortgage deals currently available in its market.

The five year version has been cut to 3.99% and is the lowest available in its field.

Both mortgage deals are open to borrowers with a 25% deposit and have a reasonable fee of £999.

Further value for money is provided in the form of incentives for remortgages of free legal fees and valuation.

A flexible option allowing overpayments, underpayments, payment holidays and lump sum withdrawals should also increase the appeal of the products for those with irregular incomes.

One of the best mortgage deals around, the moves mirror changes made by Britannia on its mortgage range, and fully deserve five out of five Moneyfacts stars.
