Types of mortgage available from First Direct
Fixed Rate – With a Fixed Rate mortgage deal your interest payments are the same throughout the course of the deal, so you know how much you will be paying throughout it. Fixed rates in the UK are typically based over 2, 3,5 or sometimes 10 years.
Offset – This type of mortgage works by tying your savings to your mortgage. The First Direct Offset Mortgage is an interest only mortgage, which means that you do not make any repayments on the actual mortgage during its term just the interest that accrues on it. At the end of the mortgage’s term you will be required to pay back the amount you borrowed in full. With a First Direct offset mortgage your savings ‘offset’ the interest on the amount you borrowed, so for instance if you maintain £30,000 in your savings account but have a mortgage of £150,000 you would be required to pay interest on £120,000.
Tracker – Tracker Mortgages are linked to the Bank of England’s base interest rate. This means that if the Bank of England either raises or lowers its base rate the interest you pay on your mortgage will also change to reflect this.
Discount – Discount mortgages are similar to trackers but instead of your interest rate being reflective of the Base Rate it is affected by your lender’s specific Standard Variable Rate. The SVR is the rate many mortgages revert to once you move out of your introductory deal.
