What kinds of mortgages does Atom Bank offer?

Many mortgage lenders have significantly cut their offerings this year due to the coronavirus outbreak.

When we checked in September 2020, there were just 12 mortgages available from Atom Bank. They were all fixed-rate mortgages, meaning your interest rate will not change for a fixed 'initial period'.

Atom's deals were available with initial periods of two or five years. 

 

Does Atom Bank offer the best mortgage deals?

Our experts analysed hundreds of mortgages over a four-week period in July 2020. They compiled a total of 208 ‘top-10 cheapest deal’ tables based on a variety of borrowing scenarios, and counted how many times each lender featured in a table.

The average number of times a lender made it into a table was 16, but Atom Bank failed to feature at all, meaning it rarely offers the cheapest rate on the market. (Data source: Moneyfacts.)

Interest rates on Atom Bank mortgages

In September 2020, the average interest rate on Atom's two-year fixed-rate mortgages was 1.83%, considerably lower than the overall market average of 2.33%.

How much can I borrow from Atom Bank?

Atom Bank offers mortgages to first-time buyers, home movers and remortgagers at 60%, 75% and 80% loan-to-value.

Applicants can apply to borrow four-and-a-half times their annual income. 

Can I make overpayments?

Atom Bank lets borrowers overpay their mortgage in regular payments or lump sums. Borrowers can overpay by up to 20% each year.
