Fixed Rate

What is a Fixed Rate Mortgage?

These types of mortgages also allow you to have stability in your monthly budget, as your payment will never change in the fixed rate period, regardless of what is happening to the interest rates. If the interest rates drop, you could be paying over the odds, but you are protected in the event that they increase.

Fixed rates are normally offered for 2, 3, 5 or 10 years. There are also the occasional longer term fixed rates that come onto the market. These type of deals are ideal if you are not looking to move from the property within the ‘fixed’ period.

If however your circumstances change and you do wish to move within the fixed rate period, most lenders will allow you to port your mortgage. This means they will allow you to take your current mortgage with you to your new home, and you can take a top-up mortgage from them for the difference you may need on the next purchase. (This is always subject to terms and conditions so always let your broker know if you have any intention to move within the fixed period, so they can advise you accordingly.)

If however your circumstances change and you have to sell within the fixed rate period, most lenders have an early repayment charge that you would have to pay to redeem your mortgage early.

Why use a Broker for Fixed Rate Mortgages?

There are a number of advantages and disadvantages when looking at Fixed Rate mortgages, such as the length of the fixed rate, the arrangement fees for the mortgage, interest rate movements going up or down and penalties if you wish to exit the fixed period early. All of these areas need to be considered and more.

This was from a client we have been working with for over 7 years now: "Many thanks for all your hard work and effort to obtain our mortgage offer! I can't tell you how it feels for us to have gone from having nearly 100k of debt and a 'hopeless case' to getting a high street mortgage (in less than 7 years!)

Justin was recommend by my bother who had his mortgage arranged with him a couple of years before. The set up process was very easy, Justin got me on the phone, found out my needs and financial details and then came back a couple of days later with three options for me to pick from. After than things went smoothly, Justin and his team were VERY helpful, they even helped fix a couple of problems caused by my solicitors. On the day of completion Justin was on the phone making sure everything was fine as were his team. I felt very well looked after and even decided to arrange extra life cover with Justin.

I would like to thank Justin from J F Financial for his extremely professional service. After my recent stage one interview which was to understand all aspects of my financial position he was able to tell me more about my finances than I knew myself. Justin gave me clear, decisive advice which enabled me to put things in place to secure future financial stability. I initially went to Justin to see if he was able to help secure an acceptable rate on the re-mortgage of my property as it had come to the end of its term and slipped into variable rate. This was something that I did not think was possible in today’s current financial market. Justin not only matched my existing interest rate but secured this rate for the next 5 years. From Stage one to completion of the mortgage I found this to be a very smoothly run and professional service and would not hesitate with recommending Justin from J F Financial to any of my family or contacts in the future.
