There are several types of variable rate mortgages, including standard variable, discounted rate and tracker rate. The interest rate you pay on all of these can go up as well as down. Although they do not offer protection from future rate increases, they will allow you to benefit from cheaper payments when interest rates are low.
Some lenders offer tracker rate mortgages. These rates move up and down (or track) in line with changes to the Bank of England base rate, meaning that your payment can fluctuate as well.
Most lenders offer a standard variable rate mortgage (SVR). The fees associated with taking out, or remortgaging from, an SVR mortgage are often relatively low. This is because many have low set-up costs and no early repayment charges. Unlike a tracker, an SVR is set arbitrarily by each individual lender, so your rate may increase or decrease by a different amount to the Bank of England base rate.
Discounted rates are another form of variable rate mortgage; we have a separate best buy table for these here, or a specialist table for first time buyers.
