None of the content above should be considered to constitute investment advice. Individuals’ objectives and circumstances vary and as such appropriate investments for one may not be appropriate investments for all.
Past Performance is a poor indicator and certainly no guarantee of future performance.
Investments can fall as well as rise, and may fall considerably.
The value of investments is not guaranteed and you may not receive back the full amount invested.
The tax treatment of investments such as these, including the initial tax relief available, are dependent on the investment vehicle successfully maintaining qualifying status throughout its life.
Many tax advantaged investments are high risk investments and we strongly recommend investors do not consider investing on the basis of this information alone or investing without obtaining financial advice from an appropriate source.
Investments in small companies are speculative and the promise of higher potential returns comes with a commensurately higher risk of capital losses.
*Definition of a failed investment is the loss of 50% or more of the original investment.

How to Compare Mortgage Lenders in the UK

Although these days you can easily compare mortgage lenders online, letting a website do all the work for you, it's still important that you know what to consider before making a final decision. Also, you should make sure that you compare lenders who are offering the same type of deal and stipulating similar conditions, otherwise you might compare apples and oranges.

What to Look At In the Mortgage

When you compare mortgage lenders in order to find the best rate mortgages for your situation you must look at the interest rate, points, closing costs, loan features (i.e. maximum LTV, qualifying ratios, and insurance payments), and lock-in period. The lock-in period deserves special attention because it represents the period during which the mortgage rate is secured. When you compare mortgage lenders, the longer the lock-in period offered, the better

Comparing Similar Products

If you want to compare mortgages effectively then you should look at products that are essentially the same, even if they come from different lenders. For example, compare a 10-year fixed with a 10-year fixed, not a 10-year adjustable with a 25-year adjustable. To make no mistake, first find mortgages provided by different lenders that have the same interest rate. Second, check that the lock-in period is the same in both offers. Third, compare the fees.

Lenders and Reputation

A lender's name should not influence too much your final choice, provided that the lender is established, i.e. has all the authorisations required to operate and a good number of clients. Being under the scrutiny of financial authorities, lenders are obliged to stick to their promises. Problems between debtors and lenders rarely appear.  If problems do occur it’s usually not because the lenders try to deceive their customers; more frequently, debtors fail to understand all the terms of the agreement they have signed and are surprised when the interest rate changes suddenly or extra fees are charged.
