Interest only loans

  • Payment of interest only
  • Ideal for Property Investors
  • No payment of principal amount
  • Lower monthly repayments

You only repay the interest component on the principal during the term of the loan, not paying off any of the principal loan amount. As no payment is being applied off the principal amount, the monthly repayments are lower than with a principal and interest loan which does pay off the principal.

At the end of the loan period you must repay the entire principal of the loan, renew a fixed period of interest only or convert the loan to an Interest and Principal loan.

Generally this type of loan is suitable for the purchase of an investment property where holding costs are minimised until it is intended to sell the property for a capital gain.

Benefits:

  • Lower repayments than principal and interest therefore providing better cash-flow in the case of a rental property, letting rental income closer match repayments
  • Reduces the cost of financing a residential investment property which allows for better lifestyle or other investments

Disadvantages:

  • At the end of the Interest Only period the Principal of the loan will need to be repaid or converted to a new loan
  • Generally Interest Only Home Loans are at a higher rate than a standard home loan
