Our clients asked for help to remortgage away from their current lender to lower their monthly repayments.
They purchased their property two years ago with a 20% deposit and took the £1 million mortgage on a full capital repayment basis.
As the mortgage was over a 25-year term, the monthly repayments were high at £3,800 each month.
Over the last few years, more lenders have stepped back into the interest-only market, and mortgage rates have reduced significantly.
Trinity approached a bank offering part interest and part capital repayment mortgages. By switching £750,000 of the mortgage on to an interest-only basis, the monthly repayments were reduced to £1,800 each month. £250,000 remained on a capital repayment basis.
Our client had a strategy to repay the mortgage, and they were aware there was an option to overpay 10% out the outstanding balance per annum without charge.
