What kinds of mortgages does RBS offer?
Many mortgage lenders have significantly cut their offerings this year due to the coronavirus outbreak.
When we checked in September 2020, there were 77 mortgages available from RBS. All bar one were fixed-rate deals - meaning your interest rate will stay the same for a set initial period.
RBS mortgages came with a initial period of either two or five years
Does RBS 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 RBS didn't feature at all, meaning its rates weren't among the best on offer. (Data source: Moneyfacts.)
