Paying off your mortgage early

Your options explained

Thinking about using savings or a cash windfall to pay off your mortgage early? We can help.

Should you pay off your mortgage with savings?

Wondering whether you should use your savings, or a cash windfall, to pay off your mortgage completely? The answer will depend on your unique circumstances, so think about talking to an independent financial adviser to understand what’s right for you. Here are some points to get you thinking about the pros and cons of paying off your mortgage early.

  • If you have other loans or debts, consider whether paying these off first would save you more money than paying off your mortgage
  • Using your savings or windfall cash to pay off the mortgage means you won’t have that money to hand if you need it for something else
  • An offset mortgage could help you lower your monthly payments or reduce your mortgage term without spending your savings
  • If your mortgage has an early repayment charge, make sure you include this when working out how much you’ll save by paying off your mortgage in full
