There was good news for those looking to get onto the property ladder this week as both Nationwide Building Society and Metro Bank announced they planned to start lending to first-time buyers again. First-time buyers who are struggling to raise a deposit to purchase a house should read our story on the help available to first-time buyers looking to get onto the housing ladder, which highlights the options available to those looking to buy their first home.

Across the charts, mortgage rates have remained highly competitive and below we have highlighted the lowest rates available this week. When choosing a deal, although rate is important, borrowers should also consider factors that will impact the deal overall such as fees, interest rate type and flexibility in the mortgage. Borrowers who need help in deciding which mortgage is right for them should consult a mortgage broker.
