How much does a £90,000 mortgage cost per month?

As an example, based on a standard repayment mortgage with a typical interest rate currently (October 2023) of 5.5% and a term length of 25 years, you should expect to pay £553 per month for this specific amount.

However, the monthly repayments on a mortgage – regardless of how much you want to borrow – can vary depending on the following key factors:

Securing the lowest rate possible is always the most preferred outcome, particularly if you’re working to a strict monthly budget. A £90,000 mortgage repayment mortgage, over 25 years, based on an interest rate of 6% would mean monthly repayments of £580. However, if you were able to secure a lower rate of 5.25% then those repayments would be £539 per month.

The best way to qualify for the lowest rates is to have a strong, clean application and a larger deposit. It also helps having a mortgage broker working on your behalf so you know they are looking across the whole market to find the most competitive deals.

Opting to repay the £90,000 over a longer period of time, for example 40 years, will reduce the repayment burden each month. But, this also means you’ll pay more interest back overall.

The key is to find the optimum term without over stretching yourself on the repayments – don’t pay any longer than is necessary. Take a look at the example calculations below, along with our repayment calculator to see how different terms can affect how much you pay each month.

When it comes to securing a mortgage of any size, you’ll have some decisions to make and these will be reflected in your repayments. For example, opting for a fixed rate mortgage can mean slightly higher interest but that comes with consistency whereas a tracker interest rate will see the monthly amount fluctuate depending on a particular market index.

You’ll also have to decide on whether to opt for an interest-only mortgage or a capital repayment model. Selecting interest-only will mean lower repayments as the full loan is repaid at the end of the term, but to qualify for this a lender would require evidence that shows you have a way of paying back the loan as a lump sum at that later date. Capital repayment combines both interest and repayment of the loan, increasing the monthly cost but ensuring the loan is fully repaid by the end of the term.

Example calculations

To show how some of these variables can impact the amount paid back each month on a £90,000 mortgage, read the table below. It considers interest rates between 2.5% and 6% as well as multiple mortgage term lengths.

Interest rate 2.5% 3% 4% 5% 6%
15 years £600 £622 £666 £712 £759
20 years £477 £499 £545 £594 £645
25 years £404 £427 £475 £526 £580
30 years £356 £379 £430 £483 £540
35 years £322 £346 £398 £454 £513

For an interest-only mortgage you can expect repayments to be substantially lower and remain the same regardless of the term length. This is because the capital amount borrowed must be repaid in full, using a separate repayment vehicle, at the end of the term.

Interest-only 2.5% 3% 4% 5% 6%
£188 £225 £300 £375 £450

For the purpose of these tables we are assuming the interest rate stays the same for the entire length of the mortgage. Interest rates can change if you decide to remortgage to a different rate or move from either a fixed or discounted deal on to the lender’s standard variable rate (SVR).

With the Bank of England base rate currently at 5.25% (October 2023) and the average mortgage rates between 5%-6%, the repayment figures for these columns in the tables would be the most realistic at present. However, as the base rate comes back down in the future then mortgage lenders should follow suit and reduce their rates too.
