Interest Only Mortgages are designed to keep your monthly payments as low as possible. You only pay the interest owed on the loan and none of the capital which means your monthly repayment remains low.

Repayment of the capital

You must be able to demonstrate to the lender how you will repay the capital at the end of the mortgage term by having in place an appropriate repayment plan.

Some examples of repayment vehicles include:

  • Sale and downsize
  • Sale of additional property
  • Cash saved in a savings account or ISA (although some lenders are no longer accepting this as a repayment vehicle)
  • Stocks and shares or a stocks and shares ISA
  • Pension schemes
  • Investment bonds
  • Shares
  • Unit trusts
  • Regular savings plans (endowment policies)
  • Other properties or assets

Your lender will review your chosen repayment vehicle to confirm if it is likely to pay off the capital at the end of the mortgage.

Benefits of an interest only mortgage

  • Who intend to downsize in the future
  • Classed as a High Net Worth Individual
  • On a complicated income structure with receipt of large bonus or equity share
