Guessing you've never used one?



There's no need unless you have very complex borrowing requirements. I have done the last 3 remortgages myself, with a bit of research and access to a mortgage comparison website it's very straight forward.

Guessing you've never used one?


Not for a mortgage no. Not difficult to ascertain the best option for that. I do work in finance so I might have a slight advantage over Joe Public to be fair.

Paying £1500 quid every two years to avoid an SVR, seems ludicrous,
that's the reason most people I know have base rate trackers and are paying considerable over payments.

Looks as though you have to be a nationwide current account holder for this deal - thanks for the suggestion though.

Did it all in our local branch, was given a dedicated customer service rep who dealt with our entire case. All phone calls were answered quickly by the branch and passed through to our rep if she was available. If she wasn’t they noted our call and she always called back.

Same here I got a mortgage with them last year and we had one guy deal with the whole process. We didn't have a mortgage department at our local branch but he was in the next town over and was willing to travel to accommodate us if necessary. I thought they did an excellent job! I'm the kind of person that asks ALOT of questions too and he always replied swifty.

Lmaooo @ square root of car!! Loved it craigsville!! hahahaha

I got a 5 year fixed mortgage through YBS at 4.19% with no legal fees, homebuyers survey, £1k cashback which covered my solicitor fees last year. wish I had chosen 3 years fixed now though -_- So far they've not bothered me with anything and it was 90% LTV as some of us are poor

[/quote] Yes, this looks better Admittedly your calc brought back all my school math fears. Too many formulas on a page leads to palpitations and wide eyes and when I saw the word 'breakeven' I almost broke into a cold sweat X)[/quote]

It really is quite simple Monaco !!
You multiply the value of mortgage by the derivative of the house value, subtract the square root of the car in your driveway, and voila! , you save yourself 5p over 24 months of your mortgage LOL

This thread is meant to complement Martin Lewis' article which you can read here: Regular Savings Accounts and the accompanying discussion thread Regularly Beat the Best Savings Account Rates Discussion AreaI am only including accounts where the interest rate is better than the third best standard savings account which is easily available to everybody from Martin's Savings Accounts page.I have not included regular saver ISA accounts which you can find in Kazza242's thread here:Mini Cash ISAs: The Best ISAs Currently Available ListI have included children's regular savers but I would strongly recommend that you read the section about the tax implications for interest from children's accounts in Martin's article Best Child Savings.You may also be interested in the following threads: How can regular savings accounts offer such good interest rates? Are Regular Savers still worth it? (Calculations and discussion regarding drip feeding lump sums into regular savings accounts)Is there a best time of the month to deposit in Regular Savers?Transfers from Barclays to regular savings accounts Interest on BACS creditsDirect Debit PaymentsA-Z of bank/building society sort codes/account nosAccount opening date and 13th paymentsWebsites with useful information include:Moneyfacts.co.uk News PageMoneyfacts.co.uk Regular Savings Accounts PageMoneyfacts.co.uk Children's Savings Accounts PageMoneysupermarket.com Regular Savings Accounts PageSavings Champion Regular Savings Account PageeMoneyfacts Daily News Bulletin (no longer free, now subscription only) If you have information about a new regular saver account then please feel free to post a message on this thread or you can write a separate thread and then post a link here.I have divided up the information here into several different sections. You can therefore easily skip any sections that you are not interested in.Unless indicated otherwise, you can only open one of each account.I have included a summary of the terms and conditions of each account as these can be complicated with regular savings accounts. I would advise you to look at these terms and conditions to check that the account is suitable for you.2. No Time Limit / Account Maturity DateThe advantage of these accounts is that you can build up a large balance which all earns a high rate of interest. You also avoid the hassle of continually opening and closing accounts and setting up new standing orders for each new account. The terms and conditions are also generally good - they generally allow you to make a penalty-free withdrawal and miss a payment each year. The disadvantage of these accounts is that there is no guarantee that the rate will remain high and often these accounts have a balance limit. If the interest rate drops after 12 months then I include the account in post 4 instead.3. Matures After More Than 12 MonthsThe interest rate drops significantly after the date specified.4. Matures After 12 MonthsThese accounts usually offer higher interest rates and they often offer interest rates that are fixed for the full 12 months. The main disadvantage with these accounts is that after 12 months the interest rate usually drops significantly. The terms and conditions can also be quite restrictive, so read them carefully.5. Matures After 12 Months, Requires Another AccountThese accounts are similar to the above accounts but they require you to open another account (usually a current account, which often has a funding requirement). They are more hassle than the accounts in section 4 but usually have a higher interest rate in return.6. Matures After 12 Months, Requires Another Product (Insurance or Investment)These accounts usually also offer a short term, high interest rate but they require you to make a long term investment or take out an insurance product.7. Matures After Less Than 12 MonthsThese accounts are usually Christmas Saver accounts designed to encourage saving in time for Christmas.8. Homebuyer AccountsOkay, these accounts will not be of much use to you unless you are going to buy a house but they may be of use to some of you out there.9. Best Feeder AccountsThese are accounts where you can leave a large lump sum and drip feed the money into your regular savers each month. Certain accounts are not listed here as they cannot transfer money directly to regular savings accounts. The accounts listed can do BACS transfers to regular savings accounts directly. Alternatively, if you have an offset mortgage, you might be able to use that as a feeder account but it is only worth doing so if the interest paid (after tax) on the regular saver account is higher than the interest rate on your mortgage account.

what could you do with it instead - better rate and same risk?


Put it in a 3.2% account for a few months as interest rates are bound to go up soon

4.2% in a years time, let alone 3 will be crap!

My money is in a 5.03% 3 year account with birmingham midshires but I only took that out as I can withdraw it (with 3 months loss of interest).

If I was putting money away now I would stick it in this 5.05% 5 year account as you can withdraw it (with interest penalties)

I thought you were posting about a HOT UK DEAL on savings for 3 years, not trying to reveal the ultimate ownership of brands and protection under Financial Services Compensation Scheme. Good point though if you were trying to alert investors to watch out for whether Barnsley does/doesn't have separate registration for one's FSCS cover for your £50,000 with one/either brand.
