A 2.55% deal is also available for borrowers who require a mortgage to cover 85% of the value of their property.
The new products from the Coventry Building Society-owned brand follow news that the average two-year tracker rate has broken the 2% barrier for the first time on record.
The average two-year tracker mortgage rate is 1.96%, down from 2.02% six months ago and 2.01% in August 2015:
Meanwhile, the average two-year tracker rate at 60% LTV has risen from 1.72% in August 2015 to 1.81%, according to Moneyfacts.
The website also reports rates in the two-year fixed rate have also hit a record low of 2.47% from 2.54% six months ago and a drop of 0.21% year-on-year.
