Mortgage interest rates are falling, with average fixed and tracker rates at their lowest level since 1988 say data analysts Moneyfacts

Interest rates are also falling on higher Loan-to-Value (LTV) mortgages and Moneyfacts say there are now 31 deals on offer with a 95% LTV.

If you have a question about finding a better deal or choosing between the many products on offer you can ask our experts for help.

What are the best rates for fixed, discounted or variable mortgages?

How much can you afford to borrow?

Is it worth choosing a cheap rate if the set up fees are high?

What are the options if you are self-employed?

Where are the best deals for first time buyers?
