I currently have a fixed rate mortgage that ends in October, I would like to be able to move on to an interest only mortgage for one year, as I am going to be setting up my own business and need the extra money. Would this be possible to achieve? Thanks.
It may be possible to amend your repayment method with your existing Lender and they should be your first port of call. If they agree, you can expect to pay a small fee payable to cover their administration costs.
In the event that your existing lender does not agree to your request, it may be possible to remortgage to another lender on an interest only basis. You will need to have a repayment plan in place for the eventual redemption of the mortgage, but there are a few lenders who will allow you to use the sale of the property.
