Product Blast w/e 29 October 2021

Update Overview

This week we can see several lenders beginning to increase their rates slightly. Lenders are attempting to make the market more accessible in other ways, such as Bath Building Society reintroducing their Rent A Room range and Hinckley & Rugby introducing new JBSP products which tie in nicely with their existing Tailored Term element. Metro Bank are updating their Second Home products, whilst the likes of TSB, Scottish Widows and Paragon Banking Group PLC are focusing on New Build and Green products.
