Discover how a fixed mortgage deal could save you money 

Are you looking for stability and predictability in your mortgage payments? Look no further than a fixed rate mortgage.

A fixed rate mortgage offers homeowners the peace of mind of knowing that their interest rate and monthly payments will remain the same throughout the life of the loan. This means that you won’t have to worry about sudden increases in your mortgage payments due to fluctuations in the Bank of England base rates.

To find out how to secure yourself a fixed-rate mortgage deal at the best price, let Believe Money help. Believe Money is one of the UK’s most reputable brokers, supporting clients with varying needs to navigate the complex world of mortgage applications.

But first, find out whether you could be eligible for a fixed rate mortgage, and what you can expect from the application process.

What is a fixed-rate mortgage?

When people apply for mortgages, the biggest consideration is how the interest rates will impact them. Different deals are available, and the one you get depends on your lender and whether you meet the criteria.

Fixed-rate mortgages are so popular because they stay at the same interest rate for a period of time, offering more stability.

Most people get a fixed period of around two to five years and then move on to new terms. To understand what makes a fixed-rate deal such an attractive option, we must look at the other mortgage options.

Standard Variable Rate (SVR)

Lenders usually set standard variable rates and add an amount onto the Bank of England base rate, which you’ll have to pay. While these mortgages are relatively stable regarding your repayments, many people find they spend more than necessary.

Most fixed-rate mortgages transition to an SVR deal after the period ends, but there are better options out there which will help you save money.

Tracker mortgage

Tracker mortgages also use the Bank of England interest rates as a guide, and they can often be more cost-effective than a standard variable rate deal. However, while you’ll usually pay less, the repayments can change monthly, so you won’t know in advance what you’re paying each month.

Also, if the Bank of England’s interest rates skyrocket, you could be liable for hefty monthly repayments.

Offset mortgages

Offset mortgages aren’t as common as other agreements, but they can be beneficial for some people. They work by allowing people to use their savings to offset (reduce) their interest rates. Once you offset the outstanding balance, you’ll pay interest on the remaining amount.

Interest only mortgages

Interest-only deals are ideal for people who want to minimise their mortgage payments. Instead of paying a portion of the mortgage and its interest, you’ll only have to budget monthly payments for the interest rate.

However, when the term ends, you’ll also have to repay the loan, which means these mortgages aren’t suitable for everyone.

The benefits of a fixed-rate mortgage

A fixed-rate mortgage can provide a better option than other interest rates available, but it’s still important to understand what you get when you apply for one.

Some of the main benefits associated with fixed-rate mortgages include:

More stability

A house is probably the biggest purchase anyone will ever make, and how you manage your mortgage repayments will define which deals are available to you in the future. Fixed-rate deals give you more stability and help you budget for monthly payments.

While other deals are subject to changing interest rates, a fixed-rate mortgage will give you peace of mind and also protect you from getting into debt.

Budget for the future

The great thing about a fixed-rate deal is you can budget for future monthly repayments when the term ends. Interest rates fall and rise in line with the property market, and most people move onto SVR deals when their fixed rate term ends.

If you can take advantage of low-interest rates and put money aside for the transition, you won’t need to worry about getting into debt when transitioning to the lender’s standard variable rate.

Extra security

You don’t have to worry about changing interest rates on a fixed deal; you’re protected for the entire term. These deals can be highly beneficial in a challenging economy, and security is one of the reasons fixed interest rates are so popular.

How do fixed-rate mortgage deals work?

Fixed-rate mortgages commonly have a maximum term of five years, but some lenders offer a maximum of 15 years – but that’s not the norm. Two to five-year terms tend to be the most popular for homeowners.

The arrangement fees

Fixed-rate mortgages almost always involve arrangement fees, which you’ll have to factor into your budget. Also known as product fees or completion charges, the amount usually ranges from £999 to £1999.

Some lenders have introduced no fees, but they might have higher fixed interest rates, which still means you’re paying more money – but it’s easy to budget for it.

Strict overpayment terms

Fixed-rate lenders also tend to have strict overpayment terms to prevent people from paying off large chunks of their mortgages. However, the majority of fixed-rate mortgages come with 10% overpayment terms.

People can pay a maximum of 10% of their outstanding balance annually, but higher payments often result in higher charges.

Early repayment charges

Early repayment fees are one of the biggest things to consider when taking out a two to a five-year fixed-rate mortgage. Lenders have different charges, so checking the terms before agreeing to the deal is always best.

If you plan on staying within the monthly terms for the duration of your fixed-rate mortgage, you won’t need to worry about factoring in an early repayment charge. However, if you plan on moving relatively quickly, another mortgage deal might be more suitable.

Some people choose to pay off their fixed-rate mortgage early, and it is possible – as long as you budget for the charges and know exactly what your lender charges.
