About no fee mortgages
Usually when you take out a mortgage you have to pay an arrangement fee. This is to reimburse the lender for their time and effort in setting it up. Sometimes this will only be a couple of hundred pounds, in other cases it can run into thousands.
There is no hard and fast rule about how much an arrangement fee will cost you - each bank will offer an array of different options - but it will affect the value of the mortgage. It is included in the overall cost of comparison figure that you see with the rates.
However, some lenders offer mortgages where you don't have to pay any fees at all. Instead, the bank or building society covers the cost of the obligatory administration with the authorities involved, saving you the added expense. Often used as an enticement towards certain deals or to draw customers away from competitors, these 'no fee mortgages' remove one of the road blocks for people who are already struggling to get onto the housing ladder.
Lenders usually allow you to add any arrangements fees you have to pay onto the total amount you are borrowing if you can't afford to pay it upfront. However, this will mean that you pay interest on it just like the rest of the loan. If you're already struggling for capital - perhaps because you need a hefty deposit - a no fee mortgage could be ideal.
Remember though, if the absence of a fee is a smokescreen for uncompetitive rates, it almost certainly won't be worth it.
