Types of mortgages
There are 2 main types of mortgage available - REPAYMENT or INTEREST ONLY.
Click on the headings below to find out more about the options available.
Advantages of a repayment mortgage:
- Assuming you have stuck to your repayment plan, once the mortgage term comes to an end you will be clear of the debt
- As you will be reducing your mortgage balance every month, and assuming your property does not fall in value, you should actually increase the equity in your house
Very little of the capital borrowed is paid off in the early years of a repayment mortgage as you will be covering mostly the interest. Therefore, if you move in the mortgage’s infancy you may need to take out a new mortgage at the original term once again.
While you can make overpayments on top of your regular monthly repayment, there may be financial penalties for doing so
Your monthly repayments will be higher than with an interest-only mortgage.
You must remember that at no point during an interest only mortgage are you actually reducing the outstanding debt. To ensure you do pay off the mortgage at the end of its term, additional payments are can be made into another repayment vehicle, such as an ISA or pension, that will eventually release a lump sum.
These are an excellent option if you want to budget and know exactly how much you will be paying for a certain amount of time.
At the end of the fixed rate period it is likely the rate will become the lender’s standard variable rate or a tracker rate which will be outlined at the outset when you take the mortgage. At this point you may opt to take a further fixed rate with your existing lender or switch to a new lender in which case you will incur fees.
Booking and arrangement fees may apply when you initially take out a fixed rate mortgage and an Early Repayment Charge (ERC) will often be implemented if you choose to make an overpayment.
Conversely, if rates increase so will payments but not over the mortgage’s stated capped rate. As with the fixed rate option, charges and fees apply.
This option may not appeal to those who wish to know exactly how much they will pay back a month as if the variable rate rises (say to five and a half per cent in this example), the borrower will now have to pay back at a rate of four and a half per cent.
