Guide to Mortgaging

There are two types of home loans available for remortgaging or new home buying. The first is a simple repayment plan where you pay a portion of the loan off each month with interest and at the end of the lending period there is no outstanding balance.

An interest-only loan is where you only pay the interest incurred each month. You never repay the original loan which remains outstanding. These types of product are slowly being withdrawn from the market.

You can always see how much these are going to cost you by using one of the many calculators online.

Types of Mortgages

There are many deals for new borrowers or to remortgage an existing debt that typically fall into the following categories:

Variable

The interest rate rises and falls generally in line with the Bank of England base rate.

Fixed

You receive a discounted fixed introductory rate for a certain period of between two and five years subject to status. At the end of this period, you'll pay the lender's variable rate.

Offset

These loans can be on fixed or variable interest rates with the loan being offset against your other current or savings accounts. These types of mortgages can knock several years off the length of the loan but check the terms are competitive.

Other Costs to Consider When Buying a Property

Although a mortgage is likely to be the largest expense during property ownership, there are other costs involved when completing on the acquisition. These may include:

  • Conveyancing and legal fees from a solicitor. A whole array of costs can mount up including funds transfers, Land Registry, local searches and your legal company's time.
  • Valuation and survey costs to ascertain the risk to your lender and yourself. Older properties may require a full structural survey to understand issues such as subsidence or damp.
  • Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) can add tens of thousands to your transaction. See how much you may pay by using this stamp duty calculation.
  • Removal and moving costs usually carried out by a removal company to move furniture to a new dwelling.
