What is a mortgage?

Regardless of whether the mortgage is for your main residence or an investment property such as a buy to let, it has effectively the same legal definition of being a loan secured against the property (asset). Within the terms of this loan will give the lender the rights to sell the property (asset) to repay the outstanding loan.  

The mortgage contract will have set terms & conditions which both the lender and borrower will agree to be bound by. These terms will include the amount of the loan, the term of years the loan is to be repaid over, how the loan is to be repaid either by capital & interest repayments (repayment mortgage) or by interest only monthly payments requiring a lump sum repayment at the end of the agreed mortgage term (interest only mortgage).

Other conditions could include redemption penalties and periods these are effective, interest charging conditions such as fixed rate periods, discount or tracker rates with associated terms. Mortgage terms can also include costs to be considered such as arrangement fees, product charges, valuation fees, and solicitor costs.

Some mortgage products allow over payments, drawn down facilities, and offset savings accounts, each of which will have its own specific terms & conditions.

Even though the mortgage agreement is taken out for a specific period it is normally possible to end the existing mortgage contract and transfer to a new mortgage contract with another lender (re-mortgage). This will be subject to existing redemption penalties, overall cost benefits and meeting the new lenders criteria.

It is also normally possible to transfer the existing mortgage contract to a new property without changing the terms of the mortgage contract or incurring redemption penalties. This is subject to meeting the lenders criteria and their agreement and it may be possible to increase the borrowing with a further advance which is likely to be on a new product with its own terms and conditions.


As you can see these contracts contain many different legal terms and conditions which can be confusing and could become costly if not fully understood.

Part of my service to you is to advise you which product I believe is most suited to meet your needs and also help you understand details of the mortgage contract.

In regard to residential mortgages we normally charge a fee of 0.5% of the loan. This fee will be reduced by any commission received from the lender typically 0.35%. Fees would become payable on completion of the mortgage.
