Before beginning your "house hunt" it is a good idea to get a mortgage agreed in principle with your lender so you know what you can afford to buy and to save you time later. If not, you might get beaten to a property by another buyer. If you need anymore information or help please do not hesitate to contact us and one of friendly team will assist you. The rate is fixed for the duration of the deal, typically 2 - 5 years. Fixed rates will often have a Completion Fee payable which needs to be considered carefully as this can turn what appears a low rate into effectively a higher one (APR).
