How to reduce your mortgage payments

There are a couple of ways you can reduce your mortgage costs, either by boosting your affordability to access lower rates or switching to an interest-only or part and part mortgage. See which of the below options you're eligible for by creating a free plan today.

Create my plan

Choose a longer term

As long as you meet the lender’s age requirements, you could extend your mortgage term to pay less each month, but over a longer term.  You’ll pay more interest overall, but you don’t have to stick with the longer term indefinitely.

Switch to a part and part mortgage

Reduce your monthly costs while still paying off some of your loan with a part interest, part repayment mortgage. You'll have a smaller loan to pay back at the end of your term in comparison to interest-only, and will pay less interest overall.

Change to interest-only

Switching to an interest-only mortgage can be used as a tool to keep repayments affordable, but should be used as a short-term solution. Otherwise you’ll have to pay your remaining mortgage balance at the end of your term.

Improve your credit rating

Having a low credit score tends to limit your mortgage options and could mean you'll be offered much higher rates. By improving your rating in the run-up to your remortgage, you could access better rates.

Make an overpayment

Depending on the loan-to-value (LTV) percentage of the mortgage, it could be worthwhile making a lump sum overpayment to reduce your loan size. With a smaller mortgage, your monthly costs will be cheaper.

Use an offset mortgage

If you have a large amount of savings, you can use an offset mortgage to link your home loan with your savings to ‘offset’ your mortgage debt. This means you’ll only pay interest on the difference between the two.
