A mortgage is a type of loan secured on a property, provided by a bank or building society, having assessed the suitability and affordability of a client i.e. income, expenditure and credit profile.
There are two ways to repay a mortgage:
Capital & Interest: Monthly repayments where you pay interest and part of the capital.
Interest-Only: Monthly repayments where you only pay the interest on the money you have borrowed. The remaining balance should be repaid in full at the end of the mortage term.
