Taken out a student loan? Ensure you make timely repayments

Student loans are treated like any other loan by the 3 credit reference agencies: you should therefore ensure that make the correct repayments on time.

Your credit score will be hit, like any other loan, if you default on repayments or are late. If you think you are unlikely to be able to make a payment on time, you should contact the student loan company involved.

Discount Mortgage

Lenders have a standard variable rate (SVR) for mortgages which is normally a few percentage points above the Bank of England's (BoE) base rate. This rate will vary with changes in the BoE base rate and the lender can vary it autonomously. When you get a discount mortgage from a lender, the variable interest rate charged on your mortgage will be at a discount from its SVR.

You benefit because the discount rate is cheaper than the SVR and if the SVR itself goes down, your repayments become even less, although the discounted rate can similarly rise.

The discount rate is normally for a fixed time period, typically 2 or 3 years. There may well be expensive early repayment charges if you choose to leave.
