Interest Only Mortgages
IF YOU’RE CONSIDERING AN INTEREST ONLY OPTION, GET A CLEAR IDEA OF THE ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES OF AN INTEREST ONLY MORTGAGE
If you’re looking for flexibility and affordability, an interest-only mortgage – with its lower monthly repayments – may be a more attractive option than a repayment mortgage. But these types of mortgages come with a certain amount of risk and it’s important to know what they are before signing on the dotted line.
Bespoke Money is here to walk you through all the interest-only mortgage pros and cons to help you decide if this is the right option for you. Then we work hard to negotiate the right deal for you.
WHAT IS AN INTEREST ONLY MORTGAGE?
So how does an interest only mortgage work? An interest only mortgage does what it says on the tin, where you pay the interest off each month throughout the lifetime of the loan. But you do need to make some kind of provision to pay off the entire loan at the end of the term, for example, selling an asset or using an ISA, pension or inheritance.
There are risks involved and ultimately, you’ll end up paying more. But there are also benefits to an interest only mortgage, such as lower monthly payments, the potential to make a profit if your property goes up in value, and flexibility over how you spend your money. Which is why an interest only mortgage may be attractive if you’re an older borrower, a HNWI, you’re planning to downsize or you receive substantial work-based bonuses.
