Fixed Rate Mortgage

If you choose a fixed rate mortgage your monthly repayments will not change for the period of the fixed rate, regardless of the interest rate in the market place. This may be important to you if you have a limited budget as you are protected from rising interest rates. However, if the variable rate falls below the fixed rate level, your repayments will not fall. At the end of the fixed rate period your mortgage will usually revert to a variable rate.
