Discounted mortgage

You are here

Discounted mortgages are essentially discounts from the banks and building societies own Standard Variable Rate (SVR).

If a mortgage is a “2 year 1.5% discount” it means the interest rate will be the mortgage lender’s SVR minus 1.5% for two years. For example, if the SVR was 5.0% then 5.0% - 1.5% = 3.5%.
