Barclays' mortgages had initial periods lasting two, three, five, seven and 10 years.
Does Barclays offer the best mortgage deals?
Our experts analysed hundreds of mortgages over a four-week period in July 2020. They compiled a total of 208 ‘top-10 cheapest deal’ tables based on a variety of borrowing scenarios, and counted how many times each lender featured in a table.
The average number of times a lender made it into a table was 16, but Barclays featured an impressive 52 times, meaning it regularly offers competitive interest rates. (Data source: Moneyfacts.)
