Flexi Fixed for Term

The next gen mortgage is here.

Place your case Place your case
Flexi Fixed for Term is a mortgage that changes the game. It offers your clients the chance to fix their mortgage rate for their whole mortgage term. They can choose from a minimum term of 11 years, right up to a maximum term of 40 years (with any term in between).

Whatever number of years they choose, they will pay a fixed interest rate for the duration of the mortgage term, which means that their monthly payment will stay the same from the start to the end of their loan.

Extra peace of mind

Give your client the peace of mind that comes from knowing that they won’t have to worry about interest rates going up in the future or having to remortgage. They’ll know how much they need to set aside each month from the day they start paying the mortgage until the day they pay it off.

A boost in borrowing power

Flexi Fixed for Term is a different type of mortgage and so too is the way we calculate the affordability. It's all down to the way we use the fixed rate rather than a future variable stressed rate. As long as your client has an acceptable credit profile, the Flexi Fixed for Term mortgage could work for them.

How it works
