How do I make sure my repayment plans for my interest only mortgage are on track?
If you have an interest only mortgage or a mortgage that includes an amount borrowed on interest only terms, it’s important to check regularly that your savings plan or other investment is on track to repay the mortgage at the end of the term. You can update us with your repayment plans by completing our interest only assessment form.
For all types of repayment plan, we recommend that you regularly obtain confirmation, together with financial advice, from your repayment plan provider(s) to ensure that the projected maturity value will be sufficient to repay your mortgage. If it indicates a potential shortfall, you have a number of choices to consider depending on your individual circumstances. To understand more about the options available to you, please visit our Interest only mortgages page.
