Fixed rate loans are funds lent over a set term at a set interest rate. This gives the borrower the certainty of knowing exactly what their monthly repayments will be should their circumstances change.
Some lenders may impose early repayment penalities if you make a lump sum reduction to your loan or you pay the loan out in full.
However a fixed rate loan is ideal in a rising interest rate market as this guarantees you of your interest rate and repayments for a set time.
