What kinds of mortgages does Metro Bank offer?

Many mortgage lenders have significantly cut their offerings this year due to the coronavirus outbreak.

When we checked in September 2020, there were 39 mortgages available from Metro Bank. All were fixed-rate deals - meaning your interest rate will stay the same for a set initial period.

Metro Bank's mortgages came with a initial period of either two, three or five years.

 

Does Metro Bank 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. Metro Bank featured 10 times, so while its performance wasn't outstanding, it did offer some attractive rates. (Data source: Moneyfacts.)
