Switch to a repayment mortgage

If you have an interest only mortgage, you need to have a plan in place for repaying the outstanding balance at the end of your term.

Switching to a repayment mortgage will increase your monthly payments, but the increase may be less than you might think. You also get the peace of mind that at the end of your mortgage term you will have paid your mortgage off in full.

This calculator provides an illustration of a mortgage with interest calculated monthly. The illustration is based on the assumption that your current interest rate remains stable throughout the remaining term of your mortgage. The total amount payable does not include any fees and charges that may be applied upon mortgage redemption or during your term.

In reality, since the interest rate may rise or fall, the actual amounts quoted in the illustration may be different.

Repayment calculator

This calculator illustrates the potential impact of switching from Interest Only to a Repayment mortgage. Simply enter the key details about your mortgage and the tool will illustrate the differences between these two payment methods.

With a Repayment mortgage, your monthly payments will be higher as they cover the interest on the amount you've borrowed and they will also reduce the balance of your loan. However, provided you stay on track with your monthly payments, your mortgage will be completely paid off at the end of the term.

Make mortgage overpayments

Making regular or one-off overpayments on your mortgage will reduce the amount of interest you pay over your remaining term.

Our overpayment calculator provides an illustration of the impact of making overpayments to a mortgage with interest calculated monthly. The illustration is based on the assumption that the current interest rate remains stable throughout the remaining mortgage term.

In reality, since the interest rate may rise or fall, the actual effect of any overpayments on your mortgage may be different.

Make overpayment

This tool illustrates the positive effect that making overpayments can have on your mortgage. Simply enter some basic details about your mortgage and the amount you can afford to overpay. Whether it's a regular monthly overpayment or a one-off amount, you might be surprised how much difference it makes.

Simply insert your outstanding mortgage balance, current interest rate and remaining term.

Please note – the calculator assumes your current interest rate will remain the same over the remaining term of your mortgage. In reality, interest rates could rise and fall and this will affect the amount you overpay. Please refer to your original terms and conditions to see if you are eligible to make overpayments.

While there are clear financial benefits to overpaying your mortgage, you should not overpay more than you can afford. If you have other outstanding debts, like credit cards or personal loans, consider if it would be better paying these off first – especially if the interest rate you are being charged on them is higher than that applying to your mortgage. If you have any queries, we recommend you speak to an independent financial adviser.
