Mortgage Fees Rocket

Arrangement Fees: Get the sums right, and it can pay to spend £1,999 on a mortgage

The cheapest home loan rates are carrying ever-bigger price tags - in the shape of vertiginous arrangement fees. For example, a competitive two-year fixed-rate deal from Abbey, with interest charged at 4.45 per cent, now has a £1,999 fee; ditto Birmingham Midshires' two-year fix at 4.49 per cent.

  • I do not understand why arrangement fees are good for BTL? Surely what matters is the overall cost of borrowing.
    I suppose what they mean is that the arrangement fee can be rolled up into the capital advanced. What a great deal you can then pay interest on the arrangement fee!

  • IOW: It’s 5.2% not 4.49%.. And that’s without taking into account of putting £2000 into savings.

  • Money grabbing barstewards is what they are. 1999 is a ridiculous arrangement fee. Probably takes less than an hour for them to arrange it with a simple computer credit check. I think this fee should be waived for first time buyers. I am looking at switching from one A and L mortgage to another and they still charge 1,500pounds for probably 5 minutes work grrrrr!!!
