Effective immediately, major lender Halifax has scrapped upfront fees on a range of two-year fixed-rate remortgage products. This comes after an announcement last week that Halifax was reducing interest rates on all its two-year fixed and tracker rates for remortgage customers by 0.20%.

By offering this to our remortgage customers we are helping alleviate the associated costs with remortgaging."
