Getting a Mortgage

If you're a first time buyer or simply looking to remortgage your property to change to a better deal or to take equity out of your home for other purposes the amount of products on the market can be difficult to choose from as there are so many options.

The days of a 100% mortgage are in the past for the moment and loan to value rates are also at all time lows and many people have simply allowed their previous loans to lapse onto standard variable rates (SVR) because the bank of england base rate is so low.

Types of Mortgages Explained

There are many options to choose from when thinking about which product is best for your personal circumstances so that's why we have produced guides on all types of mortgages. Most people in the UK like to have some form of deal although many have lapsed onto variable rate mortgages because the Bank of England base rate is so low.

The other options available include fixed rate mortgages where rates are fixed for a pre-determined period of time, tracker mortgages where the interest rate tracks the base rate at a certain percentage above and becoming more popular are offset mortgages where you pool all your accounts together to reduce the interest charged and the length of the loan.

For fixed rates your choice is normally limited to 2 or 3 years but many people have opted for 10 year fixed rate mortgages where the rates are fixed for 10 long years.
