Category: Ways we can help
If you have an endowment policy, shares, Individual Savings Account (ISA) or other investment plan that you were saving for a rainy day, you might want to use this to reduce or pay off your mortgage.
Important things to consider:
- The value of savings and investments can go down as well as up so it’s important to check on the progress of your plan regularly to make sure that it’s on track.
- If you’re unsure whether using an investment policy to repay all or part of your mortgage is right for you, you may wish to seek independent financial advice to help you with your decision.
- If your savings or investment aren’t enough to pay back the full amount you owe by the end of the term, you may need to think about how you’ll pay back any remaining balance.
