With a discount mortgage you initially pay a rate of interest that is a set amount below the lender's standard
variable rate (SVR), for a specified period of time, after which you revert to the SVR.
A type of mortgage whereby the rate of interest charged tracks another specified interest rate,
for example the Bank of England Base Rate.
Interest Rate Options
A mortgage in which monthly charges are used to repay the interest and to reduce the outstanding capital.
A mortgage under which the rate of interest has been fixed for a specified period of time. This will
usually be between 2 and 10 years, with the advantage being the certainty that it provides to the borrower.
Interest Only Mortgage
A type of mortgage in which the borrower repays only the interest on the loan for the duration of its
term, and repays the full loan amount at the end of the mortgage period. There has been a lot of criticism
of interest only mortgages in the last few years and, as a consequence, many lenders have tightened up their
criteria or stopped lending on that basis. However, there is still a place in the market for interest only
mortgages and we will be able to advise you which lenders are still open to this kind of business.
