What Types of Mortgages Are Available?
There are two main types of mortgage rates available to you and choosing which of these you want to use can be a tricky task. The first form of mortgage is known as a fixed rate mortgage. This product uses, as the name suggests, a fixed rate which does not change throughout the agreed term. This means your mortgage payments will be the same every month of every year throughout agreed time frame, thus protecting you from the possibility of rising interest rates.
The second main type of mortgage product which you will have the option of using is a variable rate mortgage. This is the other side of the coin from a fixed rate mortgage, in that this mortgage’s repayments do change from month to month. This is because the mortgage rate is tied to the Bank of England’s base rate of interest. The base lending rate of each lender will also affect the variable rate offered. This is an attractive option to some as it can be of benefit to you if interest rates start to fall, as your mortgage rates will follow.

Buy to Let
Mortgage plans designed for those that are looking to purchase a property as an investment option with the prospect of letting.
For amounts larger than accessible via a business loan, commercial mortgages can provide security. Since these mortgages tend to offer higher rates than typical home mortgages, it is important to ensure you are getting the best deal you can.
If you are in a position where you are looking to build your own home, a self-build mortgage may be for you. This type of mortgage is different from a typical house mortgage in that the money from the mortgage is released in stages as the property build progresses.
For some, shared ownership may be a good option when looking to purchase a home. These schemes work by allowing buyers to purchase anywhere between 25% and 75% of the property and then pay rent on the remaining sum.
Holiday Homes and Overseas Mortgages
Our mortgage specialists are also able to provide advice on mortgages for holiday homes as well as general overseas mortgages if you are looking to purchase property abroad.
All firms that you will deal with when purchasing mortgages are subject to regulation from either The Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) or the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). The PRA implements and oversees regulation of the mortgage industry, as well as most financial services and banking sectors, in conjunction with the FCA. The PRA’s main aim is to ensure the soundness of the firms that it regulates, so to prevent the possibility of harm to its clients and other businesses. This includes determining the levels of capital required to be held by lenders as well as the risk management systems that are in place.
