OFFSET MORTGAGES

An offset mortgage can allow you to make use of your savings to offset the interest on your mortgage repayments. It can seem confusing at first, as not many people are aware that offset mortgages exist. Before making any sort of financial decision such as the type of mortgage you need, it’s important to understand your options with independent advice.

At Watts Mortgage & Wealth Management, our team of highly qualified advisers can help you find the right type of mortgage to suit your individual circumstances. An offset mortgage could be a good option if you have a variable wage or if you earn an annual bonus.

How does an offset mortgage work?

Offset mortgages can help you save on the interest of your mortgage. It works by having your savings account and mortgage combined into the same account, so that your savings count as temporary overpayments. The benefit here is that you still have access to your savings and can spend them if you need to.

This differs to making overpayments on a traditional mortgage, whereby the money would go straight to the lender. What’s more, you could also protect your savings from tax. The important thing to remember is that offset mortgages are likely to have higher interest rates.

Should you get an offset mortgage?

At Watts, our team of advisers can help you to make an informed decision on your mortgage product. We have years of experience in wider financial planning to ensure you make the right choice, and you’ll get access to a dedicated adviser who you can speak to directly. It’s our job to alleviate any financial stress, whether it’s through independent advice or searching the whole of market to find the right product for you.

Taking time to understand your circumstances, we can help you decide whether an offset mortgage is right for you and your family. We are not tied to one provider or a panel of providers; instead we use every provider out there to find a mortgage deal that suits your financial situation.
