Discounted Rate Mortgages

Discounted rate mortgages are home loans where the interest rate is fixed a set percentage below the lenders standard variable rate (SVR) for either a set period or for the entirety of your mortgage. The SVR is set by your lender and the interest rate can increase or decrease by any amount and at any time. So, the amount that you have to pay each month can change as the standard variable interest rate can change at any time the lender choses to amend it (although typically they are more likely to amend their SVR when there is a change to the Bank of England’s base rate).

Discounted variable mortgages provide you with a saving on the interest that you pay, compared to the lenders underlying standard variable rate but payments that could wildly fluctuate.

Discounted Mortgages

Discounted mortgages are generally offered for a limited time frame which is usually between two and five years. The longer your discounted period is, the amount of discount tends to be smaller.

Once the timeframe of your discounted variable rate mortgage comes to an end, your lender will automatically transfer you onto a standard variable rate. After this has taken place your monthly repayments will increase as you will be paying a higher rate of interest. So, when you have reached this point you are usually better off to remortgage to a new deal.

This is something we can help you with and we should start to think about options for you about 6 months before the current deal is due to end, we will shop around for you after talking to you about all the options available.

Think carefully before securing other debts against your home. Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up the repayments on your mortgage.
