Fixed Rate Mortgages
With a fixed rate mortgage, the interest rate and monthly repayments are constant for a specific period – usually one, two , three of five years, although longer periods may be available.
A fixed rate means your repayments won’t cannot increase for a set period of time,but they will not fall either . As a result, you could be protected from incease rate rises but you caould also miss out on lower interest rates.
Fixed rates may cost more over the long run but they offer peace of mind as you know your repayments will not rise.
During the fixed rate period, you will usually have to pay a penalty if you switch lenders, or move to a variable rate.
With a fixed rate mortgage you cannot usually pay more each month than your standard repayment.
