In the early years the payment is primarily interest on the loan, with a small element being the capital. But as the years go by the capital payments increase, thereby reducing the loan.
Interest Only Mortgage
With this type of mortgage, you are only paying the Interest element and none of the Capital, your mortgage payments will be lower but you will still have the initial debt to repay at the end of the mortgage term.
These types of loans may be suitable for those with a buy to let portfolio or a second home they will sell to repay the outstanding mortgage or those with a Large amount of Equity, who plan to sell and downsize in the future. So it is vital that you have a credible arrangement in place.
