Many of the 1.67 million homeowners with an interest-only mortgage could be at risk of losing their homes if they struggle to repay the balance at the end of their mortgage. As many as 1 in 5 mortgages are interest only and with this type of mortgage, you only pay the interest on the mortgage term and then repay the full amount borrowed when it matures. The difficulty for many is identifying the shortfall and addressing the problem.
It’s a simple question but one often not easily answered. Are you currently paying an interest-only mortgage but have nothing in place to clear the capital borrowed at the end of the term?
Are you really only paying an expensive “rent”?
Think about it, your mortgage payment will change (increase) with interest rate rises and as long as you can afford it, you remain in your property. Then the term ends, what then? Start again? At 55, 60, 65 years old?
Where do you move then? How do you fund your retirement while paying rent for the rest of your life?
Is this “fair” or “reasonable”?
At Negative Equity UK we don’t believe it is. We refuse to believe that you must simply accept a situation you did not create (ie negative equity due to a property crash).
Our clients get expert advice, a detailed understanding of all of their options and the opportunity to avail of mortgage debt relief by being able to sell their property, settle the shortfall and move on.
