What are fixed rate mortgages?

A fixed rate mortgage means that your interest rate and the amount you pay for your mortgage each month remain the same over the fixed rate period. This is usually 2, 3 or 5 years – although mortgage providers have different fixed rate periods. Fixed rate mortgages are different to variable rate mortgages where the interest rate can vary throughout the mortgage term, meaning that your mortgage payments will also change.

What happens when my fixed rate period ends?

When the fixed rate of a fixed rate mortgage ends you will revert to our Standard Variable Rate unless you choose to switch to a new mortgage deal. You’ll get the opportunity before your fixed rate mortgage deal ends, to explore the other mortgage deals we have to offer at the time and to select the right one for you.

What are the benefits of a fixed rate mortgage?

Below are a few points to be aware of including how to work out if a fixed rate mortgage could be benefit you:

  • The interest rate on your mortgage won’t change over a set period of time, regardless of what is happening to interest rates elsewhere.
  • Because of this you may find it easier to budget for your monthly mortgage payments
  • However, you will miss out on any drop in your monthly payment should interest rates elsewhere decrease during the fixed rate period.
  • We offer a range of fixed rate mortgages for 2, 3, 5 & 10 year periods*, after which time the interest rate reverts to our Standard Variable Rate at the time.
  • You have the right to repay the loan either partially or in full during the term of the loan.
  • Early Repayment Charges apply during the fixed rate period. Other fees and charges also apply.

*The fixed terms we offer can vary from time to time depending on which products are on sale.

Is it suitable for me?

When you are considering the type of mortgage you need (particularly between fixed rate and variable or tracker mortgages) you need to ask yourself some important questions like, how long are you planning to live in a particular property, how much you have to put towards a mortgage payment each month and whether you could cope with a rise in interest rates (with a variable rate or tracker mortgage).

If you prefer the security of having a fixed interest rate for a set period of time and therefore the security of a static monthly mortgage payment*, then you might find that a fixed rate mortgages provides you with better peace of mind. However this does mean that you could miss out on reducing your payments should rates go down.
