Re: Interest only mortgage query

Brighton's earliest name was Bristelmestune, recorded in the Domesday Book. Although more than 40 variations have been documented, Brighthelmstone (or Brighthelmston) was the standard rendering between the 14th and 18th centuries.

Can anyone explain to me what happens at the end of the "term" on an "interest only payment" type mortgage  ?


Short answer: A lot of people get into a lot of trouble.

But they have almost certainly paid much less for 25 years than if they had "chosen" to rent a property for a similar period.

They can always sell the house in exchange for a smaller one, due to the enormous capital appreciation that has occurred.

That might depend on how small the original purchase was in the first place.

No one has to agree with my opinion, but in the time I have left a miracle would be nice.
