How do you repay your mortgage?

The 2 most common ways of repaying you’re mortgage

1. Repayment mortgages

This is the most appropriate method for repaying a mortgage. Your monthly payments will comprise of 1 portion to pay the interest and another portion to repay the amount you borrowed.

The benefit of this type is that you can see the mortgage reducing each year (albeit very slowly in the early years) and the best bit is that you are guaranteed to repay the debt at the end of your chosen mortgage term.

2. Interest-only mortgages

If you opt for an interest only loan, your monthly payments will only cover the interest on the amount you borrow. This will remain the same and will need to be repaid at the end of your mortgage term. This means you will need a separate investment or combination of investments to generate the capital required.

Most lenders are becoming increasingly strict in terms of the types of investments they will accept as a repayment vehicle and they will need to see your plan for repaying the loan when the interest only period ends.

Did you know that we can help arrange one of these investments for you? Visit our sister company Milecross Financial for more information.

Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage.

Co Ownership mortgages

Co Ownership mortgages

Co-ownership mortgages are available where you would like to purchase a home but cannot afford to buy 100% of it. Co-Ownership is a Do It Yourself Shared Ownership scheme (DIYSO) exclusively for Northern Ireland. If you hope to own your own home but can’t quite afford it, Co-Ownership may help you onto the home ownership ladder.

You buy a share of your home (between 50% and 90% of the home’s value) and pay rent on the remaining share. We’ll help you to take out a mortgage to pay for your share of the home’s purchase price.

You can even buy more shares in your home any time after you become the owner. This is known as staircasing..
