We recommend you sort by True Cost Comparison

We suggest you use our ‘True Cost Comparison’ filter. This allows you to accurately understand how different mortgages compare by ordering results based on the total cost over a ‘deal period’, such as a two, or five-year fixed rate mortgage.

Some low interest rate deals might seem attractive, but if fees are higher they might not be the best value for you. When comparing mortgage deals our true cost comparison factors the lender fees over the length of the deal as well as your monthly mortgage payments.

For example, if your repayments are £2,000 per month on a two-year fixed-rate mortgage, plus £500 in lender fees, the total cost of the deal is £48,500.
