Exactly same situation and I got exactly the same answer. I'll just leave June with no fixed rate and start from July.
This product was released on 29th May. I had a fixed term coming to an end, and am eligible to switch from 01 June. Nationwide advised that the earliest this new rate could start would be 01 July because they wouldn't have enough time to process it for 01 June. Has anyone else encountered this or similar? If so, what was the result? Hot for the product. Less so for the service that goes with it.

Iver been in the market for a new mortgage - Initially went enquired with nationwide..what a joke - the 'advisor' was useless and took nearly 30 mins yto get my basic address details input! I gave up in the end. Also agree that those adverts are so bad that I really didnt want to give them 1st shout but rates seemed good. Anyway after that awful 1st customer interactoion experience i went and applied elsewhere, awaiting a decision ( now 8 days at the underwriter!) but they are making me jump through hoops on the application despite having a 65% LTV. Guess this backs up some of the comments in this thread.
Left NW after pulling all their savings products ..... Shame!
