The vast majority of people who buy a new home are not cash buyers, which means that just about everyone purchasing a property – especially for the first time – will need a mortgage.

A mortgage is basically a large loan usually given by a bank which covers the whole price of the property, and you then pay that mortgage back monthly (much like rent) until the property is paid off. Mortgages come with interest at certain rates which may be fixed or variable. Your initial mortgage may be £100,000, however the full price of the mortgage over a number of years may equate to £125,000, however when it is paid off in full you will become the owner of the property.
