Interest Only Residential Mortgages

Santander has an attractive interest only mortgage offering. There is no minimum income requirement and will allow borrowing to 85% loan to value (75% maximum on interest only) if your annual gross income is over £250k. If it is below £250K than the maximum interest part will be restricted to 50% LTV.

With an interest only mortgage, there needs to be a repayment vehicle available to repay the mortgage in full by the mortgage term end. For those with at least £250k equity in the property, Santander allows the sale of the property to repay the loan. Some investment vehicles are also acceptable, some examples include mortgage related ISAs and investment portfolios. Please note, Santander will evaluate each application on a case-by-case basis.


In addition to Santander, there are other lenders in the market who will now consider Interest Only Residential mortgages, popularity for this type of mortgage is increasing particularly in the larger loan market.
