When a fixed term mortgage ends many homeowners find that they are once again thrown into the mortgage market, perhaps a few years after they last had to negotiate the many options available to them. Ascot Mortgages are the best people to call in this situation because of their knowledge of the market, which means that they can look through the various options for you. Often when a fixed term deal ends you would automatically revert to your lender’s Standard Variable Rate (SVR). Although re-arranging your mortgage deal may be the last thing on your mind as you get on with your busy life it really is worth contacting Ascot Mortgages to shop around for you, as the SVR is often not the most competitive rate. In addition, if you fail to keep an eye on your mortgage, you can often switch over to the SVR at the end of the fixed period without even realising how expensive it is likely to be. This is particularly problematic if you have enjoyed a fixed rate deal that has allowed you to budget and has been relatively affordable; therefore a rapid transition to the SVR may be an unwelcome change.
Ascot Mortgages can utilise their market knowledge to find you an equally competitive deal as the one that you had previously had, meaning that you continue to benefit from the advantages of a fixed rate mortgage. These advantages include an affordable monthly amount, that is easy to budget for, and the opportunity to fix the mortgage deal for up to five years, ensuring stability and security for you. Up to 75 percent of homeowners opt for a fixed rate mortgage and just because you have already benefited from one does not mean that you should not be able to take advantage of one again. Switching back to a fixed rate deal, as opposed to the generic SVR, means that you have continued stability and are locked into an offer that you know is not going to be affected by changes in the economic climate, which is especially prudent at the moment. In addition, by using the expertise of Ascot Mortgages, you could find that you end up on a more cost effective fixed rate deal than you were previously on!
The end of you fixed rate deal does not have to mean a rapid inflation in your monthly mortgage repayments as you move on the lender’s SVR. By taking advantage of Ascot Mortgage’s free initial consultation, you can continue to enjoy the stability and security that a fixed monthly amount provides and ensure that you can continue to enjoy your hard-earned home without worrying about how much your mortgage will cost you.
