C&G withdraws SVR for new customers

Cheltenham & Gloucester has become the latest lender to withdraw its standard variable rate mortgage products from sale for new lending as of 10 May.

This comes after Halifax also said it would no longer be offering its SVR for new customers.

C&G says that existing customers will continue to revert onto SVMR.
