Types of Popular Mortgages

Variable Rate/Standard Variable Rate Mortgages

With this type of mortgage, your monthly repayments are linked to the mortgage interest rate charged by your lender. Therefore if your mortgage rates increase or decrease, so do your monthly repayments. The changes are calculated to make sure the loan will still be repaid within the agreed term.

Tracker Mortgage

For this type of mortgage, your mortgage rate follows the Bank Of England base rate by a specific percentage difference. However, lenders often reserve the right to vary the percentage difference if it is in their interest to do so.

Some lenders have their own bank base rate tracker, which follows their own base rate by a specific percentage difference & can fluctuate up or down if it is in their interest to do so. This type of product although a base rate tracker can vary at a different rate to the Bank of England base rate trackers & do not have to be the same.

LIBOR Tracker

With a LIBOR Tracker, your mortgage rate is linked to the London Inter Bank Offered Rate.  The rate that you pay will be a percentage above the LIBOR rate.  The lenders adjust their pay rate for your mortgage on a quarterly basis based on the prevailing LIBOR rate, so changes are reflected quickly in the amount of monthly payments that you make. In effect, your monthly repayments could change every 3 months.

Off-Set Mortgages

This is a flexible type of mortgage that gives you the option to link your mortgage to your savings account and/or current account. The amount you owe on your mortgage is reduced by the amounts held in your linked accounts before calculating the interest due. As the amounts in your linked accounts goes up or down, you are charged more or less interest accordingly. There is also the flexibility in being able to make regular or occasional overpayments to pay off your mortgage sooner.

Current Account Mortgages

A current account mortgage works in the same way as an off-set mortgage, but instead of having the flexibility of linking to a number of accounts, you combine your accounts to have one main account, effectively creating one big overdraft.  The lender usually stipulates a minimum amount which needs to remain in the account each month.

Fixed Rate Mortgages

With a fixed rate mortgage, the rate is set at a fixed percentage of the amount borrowed for an agreed period of time. These mortgages allow you to plan your finances in the knowledge that your mortgage payments will remain the same each month for the period of time that your mortgage is fixed for. Ie 2, 3 or 5 years would be typical.

Capped Rate Mortgages

These are variable rate mortgages, with a specified maximum interest rate that can be charged, for an agreed period. Therefore whilst your monthly payment may vary, you know the maximum level it can go up to and will be protected against any further interest rate increases.

Discounted Rate Mortgages

This is a variable rate mortgage, with an agreed interest rate reduction over a set period of time. After the initial period is over the rate generally reverts to the lenders standard variable rate.
