Fixed Rate Mortgages

What is a fixed rate mortgage?

A fixed rate mortgage has a fixed interest rate for the term of your mortgage. Your mortgage interest does not change even if the Bank of England puts up UK interest rates.

You can fix your mortgage term for any period but most fixed mortgages are fixed from a year to 10 years. when your fixed rate period ends you could fix your mortgage again at a new mortgage interest.

Disadvantages with fixed rate mortgages

  • You will miss out on a lower monthly mortgage payment if interest rates fall and your lender reduces their mortgages rates.
  • During the fixed term early repayment charges may apply if you want to repay all or part of your mortgage.
  • Some fixed rate products are expensive to set up so these charges should be factored into your decision making.
  • When you come to the end of your mortgage term your repayments may increase if interest rates have risen during fixed rate term.
