Normally the thing most people want to know first is how much they’ll be paying their lender every month. This is dependent on the mortgage rate you choose, how big your deposit is and how much you borrow over what period of time.
- Typically two-year fixed rates offer certainty as monthly repayments are fixed for the first two years. These rates are typically among the cheapest available.
- Five-year fixed rates are a little bit more expensive as they offer you the certainty that your monthly repayments won’t change over the first five years of your mortgage term.
- Variable and tracker rates follow other rates of interest, usually the Bank of England base rate. This means that if the rate your mortgage rate tracks changes, your mortgage rate will also change. It could go up or down – even within the term of the deal.
