Tracks against the Bank of England base rate
A tracker mortgage is a type of variable rate mortgage. They follow the Bank of England base rate during a specified period, so your repayments can vary - go up or down.
- The interest rate you pay on tracker mortgages is variable and is an agreed percentage above the Bank of England's base rate. As the base rate rises and falls, your interest rate will track these changes, and this will affect your monthly payments accordingly
- HSBC Tracker mortgages are term trackers, this means that they track the Bank of England base rate for a fixed period (e.g. 2 years), after which they will revert to the HSBC standard variable rate or the HSBC Buy to let standard variable rate unless a new rate is arranged.
Key information about our tracker mortgages
Interest type: Variable.
Is interest calculated daily? Yes the interest chargeable on the outstanding mortgage balance is calculated every day rather than at the end of each week, month or year.
Can I make overpayments without incurring Early Repayment Charges (ERC)? Yes, make unlimited overpayments and pay your mortgage off early without an ERC.
