Average Rates on UK Offset Mortgages

Finding the cheapest deal on a mortgage can feel very difficult - with lots of products, lenders, different rates and calculation bases.

Here the Revolution team has compiled a guide to help you understand what sort of costs you can expect from an offset mortgage, and what criteria dictate those costs.

Offset mortgages are a great way of using savings to mitigate your mortgage lending, and cut back on your interest costs - but the rates are all important in ensuring this is the most cost-effective type of home loan.

What Factors Determine My Interest Rates on an Offset Mortgage?

Rates are not static and are different for every customer. This depends on how risky the lender perceives the applicant; based on criteria such as your credit rating, deposit value, and how you score on the affordability assessment.

The lowest interest rates tend to be for applicants with a large deposit and a clean credit rating. However, an independent broker can also help negotiate a competitive deal with only a small deposit.

What are the Average Rates on UK Offset Mortgage?

There isn't a typical rate, since these vary significantly between lenders and applicants. You can look at published rates from every lender offering an offset mortgage, but these cannot always be compared, and it would take many hours!

You'll also find offset mortgages only available through an accredited broker from a specialist lender - and so the only way to guarantee you get the lowest interest rates is to work with an independent broker who can do the legwork for you.

Can I Get an Offset Mortgage with Bad Credit?

In some cases you can get an offset mortgage with an adverse credit history - but any type of mortgage is more complex to apply for and may incur higher interest rates if you have a bad credit rating.

It is by no means impossible to get an offset mortgage. In most cases, the best deals with an adverse credit history are from a bad credit specialist lender, with terms and rates negotiated on your behalf by an experienced broker.

What Criteria are Most Important in Getting Low Rates on an Offset Mortgage?

Each lender will have different policies, but the below are the essential factors in negotiating a competitive interest rate on an offset mortgage:

  • Your age - some lenders cap offset mortgages at 75, or 85 - whereas others have no limit.
  • The property - any homes considered non-standard can be treated as a riskier proposition by a lender.
  • Your income and affordability - the more you earn, and the more stable your payment, the lower the lender's risk.
  • Your position as a homeowner - an existing homeowner with a good credit history is a much lower risk than a first-time buyer.
