Overpayment calculator

Before overpaying your mortgage, check that your lender allows you to overpay it penalty-free, and if there are any limits as to how much you can overpay.

Ensure that any overpayment you make goes to reduce the debt (so shortening the term) rather than reducing your monthly payments. This calculator assumes you reduce the mortgage debt, which is the main benefit of overpaying.

Overpaying would save you £{{resultsData.totals.total_overpayment_savings | currency : "" :0}} in interest alone,

and mean you pay the debt off in full {{resultsData.overpayment.totals.total_underpayment_years}} years & {{resultsData.overpayment.totals.total_underpayment_months}} {{correctMonths}} earlier.

Normally you repay £{{normalMonthly}} per month. If you regularly overpay £{{recurringValueText}}overpay a lump sum of £{{oneoffValueText}} and a regular overpayment of £{{recurringValueText}}overpay a lump sum of £{{oneoffValueText}}, you'd be mortgage free {{resultsData.overpayment.totals.total_underpayment_years}} years and {{resultsData.overpayment.totals.total_underpayment_months}} {{correctMonths}} earlier. before your interest-only mortgage term is due to end.have £{{debtRemaining}} mortgage debt remaining at the end of your term. Your total payment over this period would be £{{resultsData.overpayment.totals.totalWithInterestAndFees | currency : "" :0}}.

Also note:
If you'd face a large penalty for overpaying, consider reducing the term of your mortgage, for a small fee. This increases your monthly payments, in effect permanently overpaying.
