Interest Only v Repayment

An important thing to consider is the repayment method for the mortgage. There are two basic types of methodology:

The repayment-type model which is the safe method guaranteeing that the mortgage will be repaid at the end of it's term (providing payments are maintained throughout the term of the mortgage).

The interest-only method which relies on another form of repayment for the capital at the end of the term.

Interest-Only Mortgages

These types of mortgages rely on a seperate source of repayment as the repayments only cover the actual interest that is being charged on the mortgage and no capital is repaid. This source can take the form of an Individual Savings Account or other investment.

Interest only mortgages are only available on buy to let schemes.

The aim is for the savings plan to grow sufficiently to meet full repayment of the mortgage at or before the end of it's term. There is an element of risk with this type of mortgage as there is no guarantee that the investment will generate sufficient returns to pay off the mortgage.

Repayment-Type Mortgages

The monthly repayment consists of both interest and capital. The end result therefore is that the full mortgage is repaid at the end of the term making this a safer option than an interest only mortgage.

Your mortgage statement each year will show the amount of the mortgage capital reducing as well as the interest that has been paid.
