* Between 1 Jan 2018 and 30 Jun 2018, at least 10% of people who switched energy supplier for both gas & electricity with uSwitch saved £482 or more.

Around five million homeowners in the UK are not on the most suitable mortgage deal for them, according to new research.

The study by Abbey has estimated that the affected Brits could be spending around £5 a day on home loan overpayments, meaning that around £25 million is being wasted by those who do not shop around for the best deal.

It was also found that 47 per cent of homeowners do now review their mortgage deal regularly.

Commenting on the findings, Nici Audhlam-Gardiner, Abbey's mortgage head, said: "£5 a day or £140 a month on average is not an insignificant amount of money and we know for a fact that five million people could benefit immediately by shopping around."

Research by also recently indicated that homeowners could make significant savings by shopping around for mortgage deals.

The study concluded that people could save up to £3,000 by spending more time researching their options.
