Capped Rate Mortgage

A Capped Rate Mortgage allows the rate of your mortgage to fluctuate in line with the lenders SVR (Standard Variable Rate) however for a fixed period of time the rate will not rise above your capped rate, this is usually 2, 3 or 5 years.

This enables you as the borrower to know that there is an upper limit on the interest that you will pay during your Capped rate mortgage term.

So a capped rate mortgage gives you the flexibility of a variable rate mortgage with the security of a fixed rate mortgage, with a fixed upper limit on the interest.

The most common terms for a Capped rate mortgage are:

  • 2 year
  • 3 year
  • 5 year

This type of mortgage will usually have an early repayment charge that applies during the capped rate period. After this you are usually free to move your mortgage without penalty.
