With an interest only mortgage, you only cover the interest element of your mortgage and don`t reduce the capital you borrowed initially. This means your payments will be less than a normal mortgage, but at the end of the term you’ll still owe the original amount you borrowed from the lender. You must provide your lender with substantial proof that you are able to repay the mortgage outstanding at the end of the mortgage term.
Interest only mortgages differ from typical repayment mortgages. With Repayment mortgages, you gradually repay the money you’ve borrowed on the full mortgage amount throughout the agreed mortgage term. With repayment mortgages you make one payment a month to your lender, part of which goes towards repayment of the actual loan, and the rest covers the interest. This means your monthly payments are higher than that of an interest-only.
With interest only mortgages, you’re only paying the mortgage interest per month, so your payments can be far lower than a repayment mortgage. However, this means you will need to make other arrangements for paying back the full capital at the end of the mortgage term. You can either mean paying a separate monthly sum into another investment, or using another asset / investment that already has a value that would cover the loan.
You will need proof of a legitimate repayment plan to pay off your mortgage at the end of the mortgage term. Acceptable repayment plans vary by lender, and may include:
Lower monthly payments – You are only paying back the interest on your loan per month for the term of the mortgage.
Control Over Investment – You have the ability to decide how you repay the capital of your mortgage after the period is up.
Potential to Profit – You can use the additional cash saved to put towards home improvements, property developments or gain more equity in the property.
