Barclays Update

Here are the latest updates from Barclays.  These products are available via our direct to lender mortgage club which offers you payment on completion and a lot more besides!

Barclays Mortgage Product Changes

Please be advised that following a review of our offering,  we’re making a number of changes to products across our Residential and Buy to Let new lending ranges and our Residential Reward range.

These changes which include some rate increases, rate decreases, new products being launched plus some product withdrawals, are effective from tomorrow, Wednesday, 26th April 2023.

Three key product change highlights –  good news for your higher LTV Residential clients
  • 2 year Fixed £999 product fee, 85% LTV, Min loan £5k, Max loan £2m will be reducing from 5.24% to 4.77%
  • 5 year Fixed £999 product fee, 85% LTV, Min loan £5k, Max loan £2m will be reducing from 4.51% to 4.38%
  • 5 year Purchase Only Fixed £0 product fee, 85% LTV, Min loan £5k, Max loan £2m will be reducing from 4.70% to 4.48%

For more information, full details of all product changes can be found within our rate overview guide and you can access the full range of Barclays mortgage products, effective from tomorrow, within our updated Intermediary and Reward rate sheets.

To qualify for a product, a MIS needs to have been generated, on or before the date of withdrawal (Tuesday 25th April) either using our Barclays systems or your preferred sourcing tool and must be submitted prior to the last application date – Wednesday 26th April for Product Transfers and Thursday 4th May for new lending applications.

Please be advised that upon withdrawal, the products will be removed from the dropdown options within our application services. Therefore, for new lending applications you will need to ensure the product has been selected and saved in the application today (you then have until Thursday 4th May to secure a case booking and submit).

Update –  Help to Buy Wales

Following the closure of the HTB England scheme on 31st March,  please be advised Barclays will also no longer participate in the Help to Buy Wales scheme.

We will continue to support any existing Help to Buy Wales applications to completion and remain committed to helping first-time buyers across the UK achieve their dream of owning their own home through the Mortgage Guarantee Scheme and Barclays Family Springboard Mortgage.

Important information about the new Consumer Duty rules

Following completion of the fair value assessments of our products we, as a product Manufacturer, are required to share information with intermediaries, as Distributors of our products, to enable you to:

  • Understand the characteristics of the product or service
  • Understand the identified target market
  • Consider the needs and objectives of any consumers with characteristics of vulnerability
  • Identify the intended distribution strategy
  • Ensure the product or service will be distributed in accordance with the target market

To do this we are using an industry-agreed template to make it as easy and consistent as possible. 
Our completed templates can now be accessed on our Intermediary website.
