Residential Mortgages

A financial product designed for individuals who wish to purchase their own home

What is a residential mortgage?

A residential mortgage is a loan to buy a property to live in. The mortgage loan is secured on the property. If you cannot make payments, your lender can take ownership of the property and sell it to recover losses.

It is typical to determine residential mortgages based on the property’s value, creditworthiness, and income.

How does a residential mortgage work?

  • Rates for this mortgage can be fixed or variable; it’s your choice. If you choose a fixed rate, your monthly payments will stay the same throughout the fixed term. A variable rate means the interest rate may change, so your monthly payments can go up or down.
  • Residential mortgages are paid back in monthly instalments over    5-40 years. Most people take a ‘capital and interest’ mortgage, sometimes called a ‘repayment mortgage’. This means the monthly payment consists of the interest cost and an element to repay the debt so that the mortgage is fully repaid at the end of the term.
  • For higher earners or those with a larger deposit, it is possible to take an interest-only mortgage which would mean lower monthly payments. You, instead, would have to have the means to repay the whole debt at the end of the mortgage term, and the lender would need to agree that your repayment strategy was credible.

Benefits of a residential mortgage

  • A residential mortgage helps you to purchase your home without the need to pay a large sum of money upfront and if property prices increase, you could build up equity in the property over time.
  • Low-interest rates: It typically comes with lower interest rates than other types of loans, such as credit cards or commercial loans, making them more affordable.
  • Flexible repayment terms: Residential mortgage lenders are often willing to provide flexible repayment terms, such as overpayments or fixed or variable rate options.
  • Builds Equity: If you take this mortgage on a repayment basis, meaning your monthly payments consist of capital and interest, some of your payments count toward reducing the principal balance of the loan.
  • Stability: It can provide financial stability if you opt for a fixed interest rate, as your interest and, therefore, monthly payments will remain the same for that fixed rate period.
