Repayment Methods for your Mortgage

Once their mortgage application has been accepted in principal, the borrower may have the op-tion of deciding how he or she repays their loan: on a ‘capital and interest’ basis, or on an ‘inter-est only’ basis.

Capital and Interest Mortgages
An arrangement where part of the monthly repayment is used to pay the interest and the re-mainder is used to reduce the original amount of the loan. In the early years of the mortgage, most of the monthly repayment goes towards paying the interest; in later years, the proportion of the payment that is interest reduces (as more of the capital is repaid) and more of the repay-ment is available to reduce the loan amount.

Interest-only Mortgages
Interest only mortgages are a type of mortgage where the regular payments only cover the in-terest that is due. The full capital amount remains outstanding during the mortgage term and is repaid in one lump sum at the end of the term.

Lenders require evidence that a customer will have in place a clear credible repayment strategy and that the repayment strategy has the potential to repay the capital borrowed.
Repayment strategies may include investment product(s), pension(s), periodic repayment of capital from irregular sources of income (i.e. bonuses), the sale of another property or other land or other acceptable methods which meet lending criteria. It will not normally be appropriate to use deposit accounts as a repayment strategy as the rate of interest charged on the mortgage is normally greater than the interest earned on the deposit.

This means that the mortgage payments made each month to the lender will be lower than those of a repayment mortgage for a similar loan and term. However, borrowers must remember that the cost of their repayment vehicle/strategy needs to be taken into account when calculating the overall costs of the mortgage arrangement and especially when comparing those costs to the cost of borrowing on a capital & interest basis.

Having decided on the loan repayment method, the borrower then needs to consider what kind of mortgage they want. The main options, some of which may or may not be available depending on the mortgage market and general economic conditions prevailing at the time, are described below

 


Remortgaging

THINK CAREFULLY BEFORE SECURING YOUR DEBTS AGAINST YOUR HOME. YOUR HOME MAY BE REPOSSESSED IF YOU DO NOT KEEP UP REPAYMENTS ON YOUR MORTGAGE.

Whether you are looking at consolidating your debts, raising money for home improvements, looking for a better monthly payment than you currently have, or want to restructure the terms of your current loan, we can help.

Remortgaging can help your financial health in many ways. In simple terms, remortgaging involves moving your current mortgage to a new arrangement, arranged either with your existing lender or with a new lender.


First Time Buyer

The prospect of buying your first home can be both daunting and confusing.  We aim to guide you through the process from start to finish, so that you understand exactly what’s involved.  We will explain the different types of mortgages and interest rate types, as well as running through the costs involved at the outset, so you are fully informed, enabling you to make your first home purchase with confidence.


Standard Variable Rate Mortgages

The monthly mortgage repayments are based on the prevailing rates of interest the lender charges - not the Bank of England (BoE) base rate. In other words, it is entirely the lender’s decision on the rate of interest they charge the borrower.


Tracker Mortgages

The interest rate applied to the mortgage repayment is linked directly to the Bank of England’s base rate and will rise and fall in line with that rate.
