An interest rate for a home loan, set for an agreed period.
Fixed interest rate loans offer more certainty of repayment than variable interest rate loans because the interest rate does not change for a specified period of time (usually between 1-5 years but even up to 10 years). At the expiry of the fixed rate period the interest rate generally reverts to a variable interest rate unless a further fixed rate period is agreed with the lender.

When a Lender lends you money at a fixed interest rate, they do so on the understanding that you will make certain fixed payments for the whole of the fixed rate period. Usually the Lender arranges their
own funding position on the assumption that they will receive those payments. As a result, if you make certain changes to your loan, it will change that funding position. The Lender may make a loss from re-arranging their funding. As a result, you may be required to pay costs for breaking the fixed rate period depending on the circumstances.
