What Is an Offset Mortgage?

An offset mortgage is a mortgage with a savings/current account that’s linked to the mortgage account. Why would you want a savings account linked to your mortgage?

Because it can reduce the amount of interest you’re charged.

With an offset mortgage, the lender deducts the savings in your linked account from the outstanding mortgage balance to give a net balance. They then charge interest on this net balance, as opposed to the total outstanding mortgage balance – like they would with a normal mortgage.

You can benefit from the reduced interest charges in 2 main ways, you can either:

  • Make lower monthly payments with a payment reduction offset
  • Make the same monthly payments that you would on a normal mortgage, so that you essentially make overpayments on your mortgage and pay it off quicker, with a term reduction offset

Payment reduction offsets are available on both repayment and interest-only bases. Term reduction offsets are only available as repayment mortgages.

Would You Benefit from an Offset Mortgage?

Offset mortgages are particularly useful for people with significant amounts of savings – or those expecting to acquire some in the near future – who require a mortgage.  This could be for purchase or remortgage.

We recommend you sort by True Cost Comparison

We suggest you use our ‘True Cost Comparison’ filter. This allows you to accurately understand how different mortgages compare by ordering results based on the total cost over a ‘deal period’, such as a two, or five-year fixed rate mortgage.

Some low interest rate deals might seem attractive, but if fees are higher they might not be the best value for you. When comparing mortgage deals our true cost comparison factors the lender fees over the length of the deal as well as your monthly mortgage payments.

For example, if your repayments are £2,000 per month on a two-year fixed-rate mortgage, plus £500 in lender fees, the total cost of the deal is £48,500.

Process for Buying a Home/Remortgaging

1. First Conversation with Adviser

When you phone us, you can either arrange a phone appointment with your adviser or a face-to-face meeting – whatever suits you. Your adviser will ask you some questions then go away and find you the best deal for your circumstances and future needs. They’ll organise a follow up during which they’ll present you with what they’ve found.

2. Decision in Principle

Once you’re happy with their recommendation, they’ll go about securing your DIP (Decision in Principle) - which is basically a promise from the lender that they’ll loan you money on the condition that the information you’ve provided is correct and subject to a valuation of the property.

3. Offer on Property

After the lender has agreed your scenario, you’ll be in a position to make an offer on a property or move forward with the remortgaging.

4. Pre-Application and Submission

Following the acceptance of your offer, we’ll send you some information which explains all the documents we need to submit to the lender. You’ll be assigned a client relationship manager who’ll check and submit certified copies of your documents; they’ll liaise with both you and the lender. Your adviser will then submit the fully packaged mortgage application.

5. Lender Underwriting and Valuation

The lender will underwrite your application; this basically means they’ll verify that the information you’ve provided is correct and review all your documents for themselves. They’ll also instruct a valuation for their purposes on the property you want to buy to make sure there are no significant problems with the property and that it’s worth the amount you want to borrow.

6. Mortgage Offer

If the lender is happy with everything they’ve found, they’ll send you a mortgage offer. They’ll also send us a copy.

7. Conveyancing

After you’ve accepted your mortgage offer, you’ll go through the legal part of the process, known as conveyancing. This is where the solicitors/conveyancers draw up contracts and organise the actual, legal purchase of the property/remortgaging. If buying, you’ll also need to arrange buildings insurance at this stage, making sure it’s in place from exchange.

8. Exchange and Completion

If you’re buying a property, your conveyancer/solicitor will exchange contracts with the seller’s conveyancer/solicitor; it’s at this point that you would put down your deposit and be legally bound to the property. The purchase will complete when the money is transferred on an agreed-upon date. If you’re remortgaging, then your conveyancer/solicitor will set a date to draw down the funds and pay off any existing lender(s) once the mortgage offer’s released.

Things to Consider When Taking Out an Offset Mortgage

Whilst every offset mortgage achieves the same goal in principle, there are some subtle differences between lenders.

A few of the main differences include:

  • The number of accounts that can be linked to your mortgage
  • Some lenders will accept savings from a family member to be offset against the mortgage, subject to specific requirements
  • The type and notice arrangements of these accounts
  • The access you have to your savings should you need them
  • The offset products they offer, whether it’s payment reduction, term reduction or both
