You could be mortgage-free sooner than you think
Making overpayments can be a great way to save money over the term of your mortgage. If you choose to pay more than your minimum monthly mortgage payment or pay off a lump sum you will reduce your outstanding balance, save money in interest payments and could reduce the term of your mortgage.
Depending on your mortgage type, there may be restrictions on the maximum amount you can overpay, either by regular overpayments or as a lump sum, in one year without incurring an Early Repayment Charge (ERC). You can usually repay a fixed percentage of your original mortgage balance per year without charge. For more details, see your mortgage offer or call us on 0345 8501 711.
You can overpay on your mortgage by:
Lump Sum overpayments:
- These are payments made in one, that are not included in your contracted monthly subscription
- These payments reduce your mortgage balance and will normally trigger a recalculation of your monthly repayments
- This involves increasing your direct debit to a fixed monthly amount, or a set amount above your minmum monthly payments
- These payments reduce your balance
