One third of us are opting for setting mortgage rates for five years or more and the main reason is the certainty. More and more people are now fixing their mortgage rates for five years instead of two years, and I suppose that he is trying to make their financial stability as long as possible... This is

Quite surprisingly, interest rates are expected to decline in the new year, however, there are a small number of people over the forecast interest rate increases instead.

For most people a mortgage is the biggest financial decision we make in our lives. It is not surprising that most of us want to know exactly how much we have to pay each month, which is why fixed mortgage rates are becoming so popular.

We can not predict the future but at least if you are on a fixed-rate mortgage you know exactly how much your mortgage will cost you each month for the duration of the fixed time period. You should try to ensure that the agreement is good for you and be sure to read all the requirements, paying particular attention to areas such as the Early Redemption Penalties. This is usually a fee calculated as a percentage of total loans you are. The percentage decreases as you move towards the end of what is called a "liaison period. For example a five-year term fixed rate mortgage may mean that you are committed in the product for five years (the length of the fixed-rate offer). If you need to move or to repay the loan in the first five years, you are usually charged a percentage of say five per cent for the first year, four percent the second year, three percent the third year, two percent The fourth year, and one per cent in the fifth year.

There is a huge consumer demand in the UK for products fixed-rate mortgages and there are now lots of ten or fifteen years at a fixed rate deals available. Good news for those of you who want to prepare for financial security.
