  • Annual Percentage Change of Rate (APRC)

The overall cost of the mortgage. It includes the interest rate and fees.

  • Approved in Principle/ Agreement in Principle

A certificate is given by lenders to show the amount being lent to you. An approved principle is not a guarantee statement; however, it can be used when registering with estate agents.

  • Base Rate

  • Cashback Mortgage

Cashback mortgages give customers a cash bonus. It is essentially an incentive for lenders to encourage people to take out a mortgage deal with them.

  • Discounted Variable Rate Mortgage

A set percentage deduction for your lender’s standard variable rate over a specific period of time.

  • Early Repayment Charge

An additional amount which you have to pay if you repay your mortgage early, depending on the type of deal you may have.

  • Financial Conduct Authority

An institution that regulates the financial services industry in the UK.

  • Fixed-Rate Mortgages

A fixed interest rate is applied to your mortgage plan over a specific period.

  • Flexibility

Flexible features which may apply to many types of mortgages. These include the facility to overpay or take fewer payments.

  • Interest Only Mortgage

An interest-only mortgage is a type in which the mortgagor (the borrower) is required to pay only the interest on the loan for a certain period.

  • Joint Mortgage

Mortgage deals with more than one individual involved.

  • Lender’s Arrangement Fee

The lender charges a fee to set up the mortgage plan to cover administration costs.

  • Lenders Standard Variable Rate

The lender charges the standard interest rate on mortgages without discounts or deals.

The LTV or loan to value ratio is the value of the loan you take out minus the value of the property as a whole. It is expressed in the form of a percentage to better understand the ratio.

  • Mortgage Term

The proposed period or tenure in which the mortgage deal lasts for.

  • Repayment Mortgage

A repayment mortgage is a home loan where you repay a bit of the capital, which is the amount you borrowed, along with some interest each month.

  • Tracker Mortgage Rate

A mortgage deal in which the interest rate is linked to the base rate, which can easily go up and down.
