A fixed-rate mortgage is one where the interest rate stays the same for a period of time. During that time period the fixed rate of interest is guaranteed not to change. The period can be anything from 1 to 10 years. The cheapest tend to be two-year fixed rate mortgages, but it may be advisable for you to fix for longer, depending on your preferences.
Fixed rate mortgages have pros and cons. They tend to appeal to people who want to know exactly what their monthly costs are. These individuals are happy knowing that their monthly mortgage payment will remain the same, regardless of interest rates.
On the other hand, a fixed rate mortgage needs to be studied closely. The best fixed rate deal isn't necessarily the one with the lowest interest rate. It's important to fully understand the mortgage product details and compare products to get the best value deal for your budget and circumstances.
For example, mortgage products with lower fixed rates often have higher arrangement fees.
Another pitfall to avoid is the early repayment charge overhang. This is the period of time after your initial benefit or fixed rate had finished during which you are still charged a penalty for repaying your mortgage.
In other words, you could find your self at the end of a two- or three-year fixed rate mortgage deal only to be tied in for another year at the lender's standard variable rate. And that's not something that you want if your goal is to have steady predictable costs each month.

We engaged Malcolm's services after being turned down by a number of banks as we wanted to do a Let to Buy mortgages. He managed to get mortgages for both the house we wanted to buy and our original one which we wanted to Let. We were involved in a very complicated chain such that we have had to ask Malcolm to renew the mortgage twice for us. In both cases Malcolm was more that very helpful and he communicated every step and kept us updated all the time. We could call him any time of the day including evenings. I would highly recommend Malcolm to anyone. He even visited us at our new house to make sure we were happy with everything after completion.
Great service from Malcolm, we had to renew our mortgage several times as our house sale was part of a chain, his knowledge in mortgages is amazing and he helped us so much and did not tire! We would strongly recommend his service. He also linked us with solicitors and insurances, excellent service, we could not ask for better!
