There is a lot of ‘jargon’ used in the mortgage industry.
We have tried to provide you with a comprehensive explanation of all the terminology that you may come across during the mortgage process
Buy To Let
This is a type of mortgage used to buy property that will be used solely for the purposes of renting to a third party i.e. you as the owner never intend to live there.
These are usually charged by the lender when arranging a loan on certain products.
This is a temporary loan which enables you to complete the purchase of your property before completing the sale of your existing house. A typical example of when you may need one would be if you wanted to buy a second property before you’d sold your first.
Bank of England Base Rate
The Bank of England Base Rate determines how much other banks and building societies pay for the loans that they take out from the Bank of England. These base rates will in turn affect the interest rate paid for loans including the loan on your mortgage.
