Compares two fixed-rate deals. The length of fix and any fees complicate this – we break down the cost per month, over the fixed terms and until the mortgage is repaid.

The nerdy bit – see how the debt is gradually paid off

In the first few years of the mortgage, you're paying proportionally more interest, so the debt only reduces slowly, as the table above shows. However, making overpayments can eat into the debt and massively reduce the amount you repay in total as it means less interest overall (always check there aren't overpayment penalties beforehand).
