​​Your Mortgage Options

Fixed Rate Mortgages

With a fixed rate mortgage, the interest rate that you pay will stay the same throughout the deal period - which is typically between 2 and 5 years. With a fixed rate mortgage, you will have the security of knowing that your monthly payments won't change, even if interest rates rise.

Variable Rate Mortgages

With a variable rate mortgage, the interest rate that you pay can go up or down at any time throughout your deal period. Variable rate mortgages often offer lower interest rates than fixed rate mortgages, but do not offer the security of knowing exactly how much your monthly mortgage payments will be.

Help to Buy

We understand that providing a sizeable deposit makes it difficult for many people to buy their first home or move from an existing property. With a Help to Buy Equity Loan, the Government lends you up to 20% of the cost of a new build home, meaning you only need a 5% deposit and a smaller mortgage to make up the rest.

Shared Ownership

If you can’t quite afford the mortgage on 100% of a home, Help to Buy: Shared Ownership offers you the chance to buy a share of your home (between 25% and 75% of the home’s value) and pay rent on the remaining share.
