While many mortgage lenders have been withdrawing higher loan-to-value (LTV) deals, the mortgage charts still remain highly competitive this week. The remortgage chart has remained particularly competitive this week, especially for those looking to remortgage with a low LTV.

Saying this, borrowers should keep in mind that the lowest rate available might not be the best deal for their personal circumstances. Instead, borrowers should consider factors such as product fees, flexible features and incentives, all of which can be found on our mortgage charts, when choosing the best mortgage deal.
