– Capital & Interest is the simplest type of mortgage. The payment you make to the lender every month pays off both the capital and interest from the loan. Provided you keep up the payments, you are guaranteed to pay off the loan by the end of the term agreed (usually 25 years). The lender calculates your monthly repayments depending on the amount borrowed, how long for, the interest rate and how the rate you have chosen is set.
– An Interest Only Mortgage is where the lender (usually a bank or building society) only charges you the interest on the loan you’ve agreed. You don’t pay back the capital until the end of the mortgage. The lender may require to know at the outset what the required investment vehicle is so that at the end of term this will be used to pay off the mortgage held. This may be in the form of an endowment policy, NISA, pension pot or additional investments held. Every month you then pay this interest to the lender for the duration of the loan. The lender calculates your monthly repayments depending upon how the rate you have chosen is set. At the end of the loan period, the lender will expect the initial capital they lend you to be repaid in full by whatever means you have arranged.
– The traditional UK mortgage has been with us for many generations. It was designed with the assumption that people had full time employment and could therefore cope with set monthly payments for a specific period. However as many people have discovered, the traditional mortgage does not always cope well with modern employment trends, such as contract working, self-employment, job sharing and part time work. This is where the Flexible Mortgage comes in. It has the facility for both over and underpayment of the mortgage premium built into the mortgage loan terms. What this means is that you can overpay your mortgage when finances allow (eg pay rise, bonus or an inheritance) and then providing you have made overpayments in the past, underpay when finances are tight (eg redundancy or a change in circumstances)
