What is a capped rate mortgage?

Capped mortgages come with a guarantee that they will not rise above a certain interest rate for an agreed period of time – usually one or two years. After this period, the mortgage will return to a fixed or variable rate.

Is a capped mortgage right for you?

Before you take out a capped mortgage, you should consider the following advantages and disadvantages:

  • If interest rates rise, you know that you won’t have to pay beyond a certain amount
  • If rates fall you can still enjoy lower payments
  • It’s easier to budget, as you know how much your monthly repayments will be
  • Initially, you may have to pay more than a fixed or discounted mortgage
  • There are often early repayment charges
  • The capped rate only lasts for a certain period (often 2-3 years), then the mortgage usually returns to the lenders SVR (standard variable rate)
