Choosing the best mortgage for you

There are many factors which affect whether a mortgage fits your borrowing needs. 

A fixed-rate mortgage, for instance, offers the security of a guaranteed rate over a set period of time. These were the most considered deals among Which? Money Compare users in 2015.  

On the other hand, a tracker mortgage or a discount mortgage could also be suitable. These are often cheaper than fixed-rate deals to start with, but can increase with changes in the Bank of England base rate or a lender's standard variable rate (SVR).

The Which? Money Compare mortgage tables let you search hundreds of deals from hundreds of lenders to choose a great deal  based on quality of service as well as cost and benefits.
