Capital & Interest (Repayment Mortgage)

This is the simplest type of mortgage. The monthly repayments you make to the lender every month pay off both the capital you have borrowed and the interest from the loan. Provided you keep up the payments, you are guaranteed to pay off the loan by the end of the term agreed.

The lender calculates your monthly repayments depending on the amount borrowed, how long for, the interest rate and how the rate you have chosen is set.

Interest Only Mortgages

An interest only mortgage is when the lender only charges you interest on a monthly bases on the loan you've agreed. You do not pay any of the capital you have borrowed back until the end of the mortgage. The lender will usually ask you on application of the mortgage, to provide an investment plan of some kind (such as a savings plan or endowment) to repay the loan at the end of the term. Many lenders also require some Mortgage Protection to be put in place to cover the loan.

Every month, you then pay this interest to the lender for the duration of the loan. The lender calculates your monthly repayments depending on how the rate you have chosen is set and at the end of the loan period, the lender will expect the initial capital they lent you to be repaid in full by whatever means you have arranged.

The primary misconception regarding interest only mortgages is that they are called 'endowment mortgages' or 'pension mortgages'. However, strictly speaking, these names describe an interest only mortgage plus the method of repayment for the capital sum. Simply put, an endowment mortgage is an interest only loan where the capital at the end of the term is repaid by the proceeds of an endowment policy or lump sum from a personal pension that is running alongside the interest only mortgage.
