What is a mortgage?
A mortgage is a loan that you can take out to buy or purchase a property whether that is a flat, a house or even a piece of land to build on. Banks and building societies offer mortgages, as well as specialist mortgage lending companies when looking for self-build mortgages. If you change lenders or mortgage providers but don’t move home this is referred to as a ‘remortgage’.
Repayment – each month you make a single payment to your lender which covers the interest charged each month and an amount towards the original amount borrowed. If you maintain monthly payments, your loan is guaranteed to be repaid at the end of the term.
Interest only mortgage
Interest only – each month you pay only the interest charged and nothing towards the original amount borrowed. Separate arrangements are required to ensure the original loan is repaid at the end of the mortgage term.
