Residential Mortgages

If you’re planning to buy a new home, you will most likely choose to make your purchase with the help of a residential mortgage.

A residential mortgage will provide you with a loan to cover a percentage of the total purchase price of your new home. Most owners choose a mortgage for around 60 – 80% of the property price so finding a great mortgage deal is essential.

Our expert mortgage brokers have access to some of the UK’s best mortgage products, from our panel of lenders. Whether it’s your first home, a new move or a remortgage, we’ll search all the deals to secure the right mortgage to suit your needs.

Mortgage Types

The interest rate you pay on your mortgage will depend on the type of mortgage rate you choose.

Fixed rate mortgages require you to repay an interest rate that is fixed for a certain period of time. The fixed rate will mean you’ll know exactly how much your monthly repayments will be for the specified period.

If you have more flexibility, you may want to consider a variable rate mortgage. A variable rate mortgage may start at a lower rate than a repayment mortgage however the rate you pay is likely to increase in future at your lender’s discretion.

Similarly, a tracker mortgage will follow the Bank of England interest rate. When the Bank of England’s base rate drops or increases so too will your mortgage payments.

Mortgage Terms

The terms of your mortgage determine how long it will take you to pay off the cost of your home. Most homebuyer’s mortgage terms last for 25 years but it is possible to add as much as 10 or even 15 years to the length of your mortgage.

Longer mortgage terms mean lower monthly repayments however it will take you more time to pay off the cost of your home.

How are residential mortgages calculated?

Most lenders are looking for a deposit of around 10-15% of the value of the property and are usually willing to lend around 4.5 times your annual income.

If you contributed a 20% deposit on a property worth £225,000, your mortgage would be for £180,000. For a 25-year mortgage term, a £180,000 mortgage with an annual interest rate of 3.5% (equal to £6300) would require monthly repayments of around £627.

Frequently asked questions...

What different types of mortgages are there?

Fixed & variable rate mortgages

The interest rate you pay on your mortgage will depend on the type of mortgage rate you choose.

Fixed-rate mortgages require you to repay an interest rate that is fixed for a certain period of time. The fixed-rate will mean you’ll know exactly how much your monthly repayments will be for the specified period.

If you have more flexibility, you may want to consider a variable rate mortgage. A variable rate mortgage may start at a lower rate than a repayment mortgage. However, the rate you pay is likely to increase in future at your lender’s discretion.

Similarly, a tracker mortgage will follow the Bank of England’s base interest rate. When the Bank of England’s base rate drops or increases, so will your mortgage payments.

Repayment or interest-only mortgages

With a repayment mortgage, at the end of your mortgage term the total amount you originally borrowed plus the interest accrued will be fully paid off. If you choose an interest-only mortgage, the monthly repayments may be lower, but you will have only paid off the interest on your mortgage once your mortgage term finishes.

Flexible or non-flexible mortgages

For flexibility in how much you pay each month, you may want to consider a flexible mortgage which may allow you to take payment holidays or make overpayments and underpayments when you require.

Our experienced mortgage brokers will support you through the entire process and help you get a competitive deal for your financial situation.

How much will a mortgage cost per month?

The monthly cost of the mortgage is determined by three things: the mortgage amount borrowed, the length of the mortgage and the interest rate. Thus, the cost is specific to your individual circumstances. Your dedicated mortgage broker will help you find the right mortgage for your monthly budget.

Can I take out a joint mortgage with a friend or family member?

Yes, you can take out a mortgage with a friend or family member. If this is something you are considering, it's a good idea to speak to a solicitor on whether an agreement (trust deed) would be a good option. A trust deed will give both of you power of sale so you are covered in the event of a dispute.

You should also discuss whether you'll be joint tenants (purchasing the property on a 50/50 basis) or whether you'll be tenants in common, with each of you owning a different share in the property, i.e., one of you will own more of the property than the other.
