L&C annual cost

Comparing mortgages isn’t easy. Sometimes deals look attractive because they have a low initial rate, but you also need to take into account any fees that come with the mortgage deal. We recommend **annual cost** as the best way to see which mortgage deal offers the best value for the size of mortgage you’re looking to take.

This is how we calculate the annual cost:

- We add up all the fees associated with the mortgage deal and deduct any cash back to find
**total fees** - We then divide the total fees by the number of months the initial mortgage rate lasts to find the
**total fees per month** - We add the total fees per month to your
**monthly mortgage payment**and multiply by 12 to calculate the**annual cost**

By comparing mortgage deals looking at annual cost you can see which one would be cheapest for you taking into account fees as well as the interest rate. The annual cost only applies to the initial deal as its always best to consider switching once the initial deal is over to see if you could save money.

Think carefully before securing other debts against your home. Your home or property may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage.

Representative example A mortgage of £196,730 payable over 22 years, initially on a fixed rate until 31/03/19 at 2.54% and then on a variable rate of 3.74% for the remaining 20 years would require 26 payments of £972.71 and 238 payments of £1,082.28. The total amount payable would be £283,168 made up of the loan amount plus interest (£86,143) and fees (£295). The overall cost for comparison is 3.6% APRC representative.
