Understanding which mortgage is right for you

The right mortgage for you will depend on your individual circumstances.

If you have a small deposit, for example, you may need a mortgage that allows you to borrow as much as 95% of the property value, or you may want to use a Government scheme such as a Help to Buy equity loan to purchase your home.

If you have a larger deposit, then you’ll generally have access to a much wider range of mortgage deals.

Lenders will look at lots of different factors when assessing whether you’re eligible for a mortgage. These include your credit score, as they’ll want evidence you’ve managed any borrowing responsibly in the past.

It’s worth noting that different lenders take different approaches when it comes to who they’ll offer mortgages to, so if you’re not certain which lenders might look favourably on your individual circumstances, we can point you in the right direction.

What types of mortgage deals are available?

There are numerous different mortgage options to choose from, and we’re here to help you choose the right mortgage deal to suit your needs.

Here are some of the main mortgage types:

  • Fixed rate mortgages
    A fixed rate mortgage, as the name suggests, has a fixed interest rate for a set term. This term typically varies from two to ten years, although sometimes even longer terms are available. The main benefit of a fixed rate mortgage is that they provide peace of mind that your monthly payments won’t change during the term of the deal, so this type of mortgage usually appeals to those who need budgeting certainty.
  • Tracker mortgages
    With a tracker mortgage, the interest rate usually tracks the Bank of England base rate plus a set percentage. If interest rates fall, then homeowners will benefit from cheaper monthly payments, but if they rise, mortgage costs will increase.
  • Offset mortgages
    An offset mortgage enables you to offset any savings you have against the amount you owe on your mortgage, reducing the amount of interest you’re charged. So, if you have a £200,000 mortgage and £40,000 in savings, you can offset these savings against your mortgage, meaning you’re only charged on £160,000 of your mortgage. You can still get your hands on your savings whenever you want. Rates on offset mortgages tend to be slightly higher than on standard mortgages.
  • Capped mortgages
    A capped rate mortgage will have a variable interest rate, so your payments can go up or down, but it will never exceed a certain ceiling, or cap. This type of mortgage may appeal to you if you think interest rates could have further to fall, but want some protection that there is a limit beyond which your monthly payments can’t rise.
  • Discounted mortgages
    A discounted mortgage gives you a discount from the lender’s standard variable rate for a set period of time. Bear in mind that if your lender raises or lowers their standard variable rate, your monthly payments will go up or down too.
  • Mortgages if you’ve got a small deposit
    Only having a small deposit to put down needn’t be a barrier to getting a mortgage. There are plenty of lenders offering a range of mortgage deals for those with a 5% deposit. There are also government schemes such as the Help to Buy equity loan which are designed to help those with smaller deposits. Under the scheme, which is only available for new-build properties, you need to put down a 5% deposit. The government will lend you a further 20% of the property price interest-free for the first five years (or 40% if you live in London). That means you’ll only need a mortgage for the remaining 75% of the property price.

Additional considerations when looking for the right mortgage deal

There are several other things you need to think about when choosing a mortgage.

  • Length of mortgage
    How long do you want your mortgage to be? Remember that the shorter the mortgage term you choose, the less interest you will pay overall and the faster you will pay off what you owe, although your monthly payments will be more expensive than if you opt for a longer term. When remortgaging, make sure you factor in how long you have already had your mortgage and reduce your term by that length of time. For example, if you originally took out a 25-year mortgage and have just come to the end of a five-year fixed rate, when you remortgage you should do so over a 20-year term if you can, as you’ve already been paying off your mortgage for five years.
  • Deal term
    If you are signing up for a fixed, tracker, capped or discounted mortgage deal, think about how long you want to tie yourself in for. Mortgage deals will usually impose early repayment charges (ERCs) if you leave them before they finish, so if you think a move could be on the cards in a couple of years it probably makes more sense to lock into a two-year deal rather than a five-year one.
    Although most mortgage deals are portable, you will still have to go through the application process again to move your mortgage across to a new property, and if the amount you are borrowing is increasing, you may have to accept that part of your mortgage will be on a different rate.
  • Repayment or interest-only
    When you choose a repayment mortgage, your monthly payments go towards paying off the interest you owe and the capital you have borrowed. If you choose an interest-only mortgage, however, you only pay off the interest you owe each month, and none of the capital. Instead, you will need to have a plan in place to repay the capital in full at the end of the mortgage term.
    If you are set on going for an interest-only mortgage, you will usually only be able to get one if you have a large deposit to put down if you are buying, or if you have a significant amount of equity in your property if you are remortgaging.

Mortgage Rates & Deals FAQs

How much can I afford to borrow for a mortgage?

The amount you can afford to borrow will depend on your income and on your other outgoings. Lenders will want to check that you can comfortably afford your monthly payments both now and if interest rates rise in future. Use our mortgage calculator to find out how much you might be able to afford to borrow.

The mortgage you can get will depend on how much deposit you can afford to put down and on your monthly income and commitments. There are lots of different types of mortgage to choose from. Having a bigger deposit gives you access to a wider choice of deals, but there are still plenty of mortgage options if you have a small deposit.

To get a mortgage you’ll first need to work out how much you can borrow. You can also use our Mortgage Finder tool to help you see which deals you’re eligible for. It could be a good idea to apply for a mortgage Decision in Principle before you submit a formal mortgage application, as this can provide proof that a lender may be willing to offer you a mortgage.

The amount you can borrow will depend on your income and outgoings. Some lenders will allow you to borrow up to four or sometimes five times your income. Our mortgage calculator can help you work out how much you might be able to borrow, or for a more accurate picture, try the online Mortgage Finder.

A mortgage is a loan you take out to purchase a property. You must put down a deposit, and the lender will lend you the remaining amount of money you need to buy the property. Mortgages typically have a 25 year term, although you can borrow over a shorter or longer period. Find out more about how mortgages work.

You usually need a deposit of at least 5% of the property value to secure a mortgage. The bigger the deposit you can afford to put down, the wider the choice of mortgage options you’ll have available to you, so it’s worth trying to save as much as possible. Read our guide on deposits to find out more about how much you should put down.

It can take around a month for a mortgage application to go to offer, but it can be quicker. This can vary depending on your individual circumstances, including how long it takes you to gather all the documents you need to support your application, and how long it takes the lender to arrange a valuation and approve your application. Learn more in our guide how long does it take to get a mortgage?

A mortgage offer will usually last for at least three months, although some offers will last for six months. Check your lender as they often take different approaches. Find out more about mortgage offers in our guide to mortgage offers and decisions in principle.

A ‘mortgage in principle’ or ‘Decision in Principle’ is a statement from a lender showing how much they may be prepared to lend you. It is not the same as a mortgage offer, which is official confirmation they will provide you with a mortgage. Our guide to mortgage offers and decisions in principle explains everything you need to know about how mortgages in principle work.
