Santander will be launching four product transfer mortgages to its residential range, as of 24 November.
All deals will have fees of £1,499 and will be available as two or five-year fixes up to 75 per cent loan to value (LTV). These mortgages will be offered to borrowers with balances of £150,000 and above and rates are personalised to each customer.
The bank will also make changes to the fees of its buy-to-let and consent to let products, but rates will stay the same.
Existing residential fixed and tracker rates will also remain unchanged.

Clydesdale reduces LTI for low income borrowers
Clydesdale has reduced its loan to income (LTI) cap to 4.49 times income for customers with a joint allowable income of £50,000 or less.
As well as basic pay, the full pension, rental and allowable benefit income will be included in the LTI calculation.
The changes will come in on 25 November and will apply to applications submitted on the day or afterwards.
Pipeline and remortgage applications with no additional borrowing will not be affected.
A spokesperson said: “For customers with income of less than £50,000, we have amended our mortgage lending terms to 4.49x income, subject to other affordability criteria. For incomes above this our policy of up to 5x is unchanged.”
