- A tracker mortgage tracks the Bank of England Base Rate
- There are no charges for making overpayments
Variable payments for more flexibility
Tracker rate mortgages are linked to the Bank of England Base Rate. As it's linked to a variable rate your monthly payments may go up as well as down.
You pay capital and interest throughout the term, reducing the amount owed in conjunction with paying off interest. The mortgage will be paid off in full when the term ends.
Your monthly payments only cover the interest on the mortgage. At the end of the term, you’ll still owe the amount you originally borrowed, and you’ll have to repay it in full.
Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage.
Your investment property may be repossessed or a receiver of rent appointed if you do not keep up payments on your mortgage.
Remember that where the mortgage is denominated in a currency other than your home currency, changes in the exchange rate may increase the equivalent value of the debt in terms of your home currency.
Keep on track with set, regular payments
Fixed rate mortgages can be a great way to plan ahead or work towards a budget. You pay exactly the same amount each month for the fixed rate term.
The best of both worlds
A mix and match mortgage allows you to split your home loan and combine the security of a fixed rate mortgage with the flexibility of a tracker mortgage.
