I currently have a 2 year fixed rate mortgge, but I am a little annoyed about the rates being so low at the moment is there any way that I will be able to revert back to the HSBC standard variable rate? My renewal date is in September but I would like to be able to do so beforehand. Is this possible? What can I do to get out of mine? Will I get charged a ridiculous amount?

You can get out of your fixed rate mortgage but it will cost you, just like everything in this world icon_wink.gif I would check your contract, sometimes the details are ok and it is something like a slight percentage. But definitely check thoroughly as sometimes it can be thousands and thousands of pounds to get out of this type of mortgage.

    You expect to get out of your deal because the rates are low, bet they would let people get in to to a fixed rate mortgage if the rates went up so why should they let you cus the rates went down. You signed a contract now stick with it.
