Capital Repayment Mortgage Explained
A capital repayment mortgage is a mortgage where your monthly mortgage payments pay of both the interest on the mortgage as well as the capital of the amount you have borrowed on your mortgage. The amount you pay off each month is calculated so that at the end of your mortgage term, which can range from from 5-35 years, the capital originally borrowed along with the interest the bank added to the mortgage loan is paid off in full. Simply put, at the end of the mortgage term the property will be yours and only yours. Your capital repayment mortgage will be more costly than an interest only mortgage on a monthly basis but the major advantage is that your mortgage will run for a set term and upon the completion of the term your mortgage will have been repaid and you will be mortgage free.If you would like more information and to receive no obligation qualified mortgage advice please complete our short mortgage enquiry form or call to speak to one of our in house advisers on 0800 298 3000 (landline )or 0333 0031505 (mobile).
Benefits Of Opting For A Capital Repayment Mortgage
As mentioned earlier the most important advantage of a capital repayment mortgage is that upon completion of the mortgage term you will own the property but that isn`t the only upside for repayment mortgages. Let`s look at the benefits in more detail:
It is a simple straightforward method of repaying the mortgage, perhaps safer than its counterpart interest only mortgages as there is no big bill due at the end.
Over the duration of the mortgage term you may well end up paying back in total less than with a interest-only mortgage as you are actually decreasing the debt each month you make a payment
Provides more assurity than an interest only mortgage which relies on other market performances to make sure the investment vehicle you chose made enough capital.
As long as you make all of your payments and do not take out further secured borrowings when the mortgage term is finished you will own the property.

Potential Downsides Of Capital Repayment Mortgages
It is no secret that a capital and repayment mortgage is the most popular choice out there, but that doesn`t mean that it is ideal for all situations. Here are some of the disadvantages of a capital and repayment mortgage:
Your monthly payments will be higher each month than an interest only mortgage as you are paying off the capital on the mortgage as well as the interest
It is often the case that in the first few years of paying off the mortgage you work down paying the interest off the debt first. This means that if you wanted to pay off the mortgage early the majority of the debt will still remain
By opting for the safer option of a capital repayment mortgage you cannot benefit from your investment performing better than expected and leaving you with a bonus which could happen with an interest only mortgage
The right mortgage called for on a property can vary from person to person as people`s circumstances are always changing. A capital and repayment mortgage could be ideal for say a first time buyer mortgage as it would provide security that at the end of the mortgage term the property will belong to you. On the other hand if somebody is looking to purchase a buy to let property and has every intention of selling their investment before the mortgage is up then an interest only mortgage, rather than capital and repayment could provide the purchaser with lower monthly payments. The money saved could be used for home improvements to the property which may command a higher rental price. These are just two examples of why a capital repayment mortgage may or may not be right for a situation, there are many more.
