How this overpayment calculator works

Our mortgage overpayment calculator is very simple to use. All you need to do is input the following details:

  • The amount you owe on your mortgage
  • Remaining loan term
  • Current interest rate on your existing mortgage deal
  • The amount you wish to overpay by – either monthly and/or a lump sum

And that’s it! Our calculator will then show you your new monthly mortgage repayment (if increasing), how this could alter the loan term and the potential interest you could save.

If you’re not sure exactly how much you may wish to overpay by, you can just alter the figures for those amounts to see a range of different outcomes until you see one that best fits.

What you should do next

Deciding exactly how much you may wish to overpay on your mortgage – and how much your lender will allow – requires careful consideration and it’s usually wise to consult the help of an expert before you proceed.

Using our unique broker matching service we can arrange for a mortgage broker we work with to speak with you about your plans and discuss in more detail how much your lender will allow you to overpay and what that amount should be.

If you get in touch or call us on 0808 189 2301 we’ll make sure an advisor, with experience dealing with these types of requests contacts you straight away.

FAQs

Yes, it’s possible but the key difference between an interest-only mortgage and capital and repayment is that the amount you owe will never reduce, so, in effect, overpaying only the interest amount won’t really change a great deal in terms of your mortgage.

To still achieve the key benefits of reducing your term and/or the interest you pay overall, you should review your repayment vehicle and assess whether you can overpay in order to reach the target amount sooner and repay the capital owed.
