Finding the right kind of mortgage depends on your circumstances, as different products are geared to different people. Factors such as how much cash you can put down for a deposit (if any) or whether you already own a property or other assets, will influence the mortgage for which you are applying.
> Repayment mortgages
With a repayment mortgage, you repay part of the amount borrowed together with the interest being charged each month. At first, you’ll mostly be paying off interest, but towards the end of your mortgage term the majority of your monthly payment will deduct from the amount borrowed.
> Interest-only mortgages
This type of mortgage lets you pay off only interest during the term of your agreement. Although your payments will be lower, the amount you borrow will still be outstanding at the end of the mortgage term. That means you’ll require credible arrangements to pay off the amount you’ve borrowed, such as an Individual Savings Account, at the end of the mortgage term.
For example, in the event that you became too ill to work, how would you pay your mortgage off? In the tragic event of your passing, would your partner be able to do it alone? Questions like these are well worth the time and effort to address – and at AFH Home & Protect, we are happy to help you work through them.
