Niche Advice Rate Tracker Index (NARTI)
The Niche Advice Market Watch Rate Tracker Index (NARTI) looks into the progress of best mortgage rates 5 year fixed UK mortgage rates over the course of time. It is designed to show short term trends to actively help applicants that are close to deciding buying a property. It is information only and the details are taking using the Twenty7tec sourcing software and ranked by true cost* over 60 months, and you must always seek professional advice on your own circumstances before attempting to apply for a mortgage.
Rather than provide rafts of meaningless information NARTI focuses in on the key areas of:
- First time buyer 5 year fix with 15% deposit
- First time buyer 5 year fix with 10% deposit
- Buy-to-let 5 year fix with 25% deposit
- Buy-to-let 5 year fix with 20% deposit
Director and Advisor of Niche Advice Mr Payam Azadi comments on the latest data:
“The Stamp Duty holiday has come to an end and clearly the Lenders are fighting for business as the rates are exceptional right now. This is best illustrated by the Total Amount to Pay Back in the NARTI with tens of thousands being knocked off the overall cost over the life of the mortgage in most categories!”
Azadi goes on to comment “The Summer saw the flight of travel is to incentivise “green” properties with a raft of Lenders offering better mortgage terms for properties with energy efficiency ratings of Grade A or B, and the 85% loan-to-value first time buyer offering makes it into my selection.
In the buy-to-let sector, the 80% market is fairly static but my 75% choice sees NatWest feature for the first time in this category. They have revamped their policy this year and removed their ‘minimum earned income level’ to make their underwriting more appealing.”
