Capital repayment mortgage:
Each monthly payment consists of part capital and interest based on the outstanding capital. The interest is re-calculated depending on whether it is annual, monthly or daily interest to reflect the reducing debt. This type of mortgage is guaranteed to repay the mortgage by the end of the selected term.
Interest only mortgage:
Each monthly payment consists of only interest based on the original capital borrowed. This type of mortgage is not guaranteed to repay the mortgage by the end of the selected term as the same amount of capital is still owed and is a higher risk strategy. Repayment of the capital is subject to the performance of a separate investment vehicle that the borrower must pay into.
