The Coventry Building Society Junior Cash ISA pays a clean 3.5% AER on new money and transfers. Kids can save £4,260 per tax year in a junior ISA
jdRiggs

I would agree that saving for them is a good idea but I wouldn't be putting it in their own account. If you have it when they are old enough to need a car or deposit on a flat then great but I wouldn't close the door on needing it for them in the meantime. I would want the option if I had saved that much of considering private school or if I needed it unexpectedly if they had medical care needs. Or if you change jobs and need the money to relocate closer to work so your kids do get time with you in the evening. I just don't see the advantage of not being able to access it. If the money is there when they turn 18 you can put it in a joint account and require both your signatures to draw down.

ohmum

Don't forget that when your kids are 18 they'll need to insure a car, potentially put down a deposit for a rented flat, even buy suitable work clothes and it's so much better if you do have to pay for it!

Thanks for that. Very thought provoking comment. I'll mull that over.

holeymoley18

Fab idea to start when they're tiny. However I'm yet to be convinced of the logic of saving for 18 years to just hand them all the cash without any controls or safeguards. Just think carefully about whether you are happy about this or if you'd feel more comfortable saving in your name and retaining control. I'd also like to add that I've known two families who lost their homes through redundancy whilst sitting on thousands of pounds in savings in their kids names, filled when times were better, that they couldn't access. In both cases having the ability to release the funds would have made all the difference!

Early Repayment Fees are standard practise in fixed rates, during the deal period. That's the security the lender has in return for the guarantee the lender gives with the fixed rate during that period.

kiora_nas

There also seems to be a no fee 1.99% 5 year fixed fee, but does have early repayment fee. So £499 if you want no early repayment fees or £0 if you don't mind https://www.coventrybuildingsociety.co.uk/consumer/product/mortgages/standard/fhk14.html repayment fees5.00% of the balance repaid until 31.12.18, then 3.00% until 31.12.20, then 1.00% until 31.12.22You can repay up to 10% of the capital p.a. without an early repayment charge HSBC still looks better though

jk1984

First Direct- part of hsbc are doing a fee saver 5 year fix at 1.84 unlimited overpayments without any penalties...good luck

whatyadoinsucka

The HSBC deal is portable and has no upfront fee therefore af a lower percentage it's a better deal in my eyes. If you want flexibility an interest rate tracker from HSBC would be a better deal. At the the current time with Brexit and the low interest rate, the banks need a margin and so I can't see better rates coming up, if you are jumping between fixes and paying upfront fees all the time then you are just lining the banks pockets ps HSBC is 60% ltv so again suitable to an increased customer base over this deal

ouali8

The point is if you wanted to move away within your fixed period with HSBC you cant, unless you're happy paying their early termination fee. This clearly may not be suitable for you, but if you wanted the comfort of a 5 year fix, but during this time you wanted the flexibility to move away to a better deal for example, you can.

good rate, seems a good deal. The interest rates won't move for a while.

jrw

Not with that fee it isn't. Unless you've got a massive balance outstanding it's not worth it. Could go up at anytime, not even a tracker tied to the base rate

utdmorgan

it may be the best available today tho. I also got a better deal. but that was before the crash. 0.17 over base rate tracker. fee free. but you'd need a time machine to get it.

Fee for a variable rate? No thanks. I am on a tracker with Nationwide for 1.54% that was fee free. It is now 1.49%

Apologies, I'll need to clarify. The Flexx for Term product is a long-standing product of Coventry. In the past, the product information referred to it being a tracker, tracking a certain percentage above an internal Coventry Base rate. It's this that has always mirrored the BOE rate. They have recently updated the marketing material to remove any reference to 'tracker' as it was confusing some customers. A little under half of their mortgage book is in products like this so it would be financial suicide for them to pump up the rate before the BOE rate increases as all the mortgages are exit-fee free. This is 100% incorrect, hence you are making very misleading statements. At one time, C&G offered a tracker at 1.01% below base. Woolwich, at one point, were offering trackers at 0.68% below base. There were others but the above are the two that spring to mind. Do you not remember the newspapers having stories related to mortgage borrows on rates where, in theory, the bank should have been paying them interest? The reality was that the banks stopped at 0% and borrowers just had an interest-free mortgage.

RobMotoring

Flex for term is a bit misleading, makes you think it's for a fixed term, I.e the usual 2,5,10yr fixes

fr3dy77_sp33d

I vote hot simply because it does offer good rate in comparison to other banks

fr3dy77_sp33d

what a weird product. it's SVR but with a good rate. problem is there is no certainty. if only they put it as "lifetime tracker" then I'll jump in. this way... I dare not to put my fate into their hand to call out the svr rate in the future

muffboy

"Coventry base the rate on their variable rate as opposed to the Bank of England base rate - but they've never raised this above the BOE rate in the past and to do so in the future would be a very poor commercial decision from them" What on Earth are you talking about? BOE base rate is currently 0.25%, this is @ 1.25%, hence you are making very misleading statements. No lender in history has ever offered a mortgage rate that was lower than BOE base rate, THAT would be commercial suicide! I think you meant to state that CBS never made an incremental increase at any time more than the BOE increase, however this is nothing special and is par for the course most of the time with the vast majority of lenders.

FrugalFergal

Are we saying this looks like a good deal then for a first time buyer? Most other options seem to be around the 3% APR mark. I suppose one thing to note is that it racks their own interest rate not BoE. They could theoretically increase it at any time.

​Agree, my first mortgage in mid 80s was 12.5% and went up to 16% for a time. I remember then being amazed at the 8.99% five year fix we got in around 95.

tissues77

Thanks Marathonic for your advice.

marathonic

There is no guarantee as to which is better as interest rate expectations could change in the next few years. However, with current expectations of no rises for 4-5 years, I'd be more tempted by the lifetime tracker. A £999 fee only represents 0.66% of your outstanding balance and, for that, you'll get a good rate for life. You'll find that, as you approach the end of your mortgage term, it gets harder and harder to secure a good rate because the fees or costs of moving are too high compared to your outstanding balance. It's for that reason that the lifetime tracker would be the choice I'd go for.

tissues77

Which one is better for £150k remortgage 1) 1.74 no fee fixed for 2 years with hsbc 2) 1.74 lifetime tracker with £999 fee with hsbc. I only have 10 years left on my mortgage.

Gordinho

Nationwide BMR, am I correct in saying that the higher the mortgage rate the greater the saving is if you overpay?

vod

If looking to overpay, doing it sooner is better than later regardless of your current rate. Assuming no charges of course.

Gordinho

Should I start overpaying my mortgage now or wait until the rates drop? (Which I believe is inevitable)

GeneralTrouble

Not exactly. Carney said they will be assessing things at the July meeting with a view of acting in August. I agree that waiting is the right thing to do right now but I'm not entirely sure a rate cut is coming. The langauge from the BOE has been such that they may look at more tinkering type policies like QE or the funding for lending scheme. There was a reason why they didn't cut rates below 0.5% through the crisis and that was to leave themselves some margin for any big shocks. Despite Brexit being a big event, the effects of it will come out over time, not after 5 minutes, thus it's not the big shock they'll need to immediately cut rates for. I'm not ruling cuts out but am of the view they'll be a last resort option.

buglawton

Agree, I can only think of 2 reasons to have a base rate above zero, to cool an overheating economy or to artificially defend your currency to boost its value. Neither are gonna happen any time soon.

Have given heat as appears to be best deal right now, and I know low interest rates won't last forever, but aren't there decent odds on an even better fixed rate if there is a Bank of England interest rate cut as most experts seem to predict? Worth waiting if you can?

Look mate, if lenders can change SVR to whatever they like why don't they charge 20% instead of 5%. Lenders rate are constantly regulated by the PRA, obviously.

I'm sure you can point us to that piece of legislation?

For the people making negative comments..... Are they actually British and know the history of Coventry Building Society? Coventry did not survive 150 years by scamming its customers and randomly raising rates.

Actually lenders cannot change their SVR 'at their whim' in the regulated environment

After some advice from the financially minded. I have a property that is let and it has a offset tracker with 1.35% above base. Currently we have more savings than we do mortgage. The property we live in is on bank of Scotland standard rate 4% loads left to pay on it. I was thinking it would be shrewd to move money around between the mortgages. Also which one would you pay off first? Thanks

illy1965

I disagree with your last part I purchased my house in 2007 and got a tracker mortgage that is 0.5℅ above base rate and my house is worth more now than it was then

Pjcity

This could be handy as I am coming out of a fixed deal in Dec and need to start looking about !!! I have always wondered whether an offset mortgage would be good for us as we have quite a bit of savings which are shifted about each year in Isa's but not really earning a lot of money..... Just a thought though if I am re mortgaging would I be able to borrow more than I need to pay off my current mortgage provider so I could build a 2nd story extension to my property? If so I presume that the LTV would only be calculated prior to the extension being built hence the property value would be as it is now??

zchari5

PPS that's why it is important to agree on lending the maximum amount of money you can to hit a 65% LTV even if you don't need it and also specifying a term that is as long as possible so you essentially have a humongous pre-agreed overdraft facility charging minimal amounts of interest for decades to come. If you don't want the mortgage there's no early repayment fees on offsets so you can just switch and walk away.
