    How does interest rate affect repayments on a £200k mortgage?

    As well as the capital, you will also have to pay interest on your loan.

    Most lenders offer interest rates from 1% – 5%. The rate you are offered will depend on the size of your deposit, your credit history, and the mortgage type. The higher the monthly interest rate the higher your monthly repayment will be so this is why it’s crucial to take the necessary steps to secure a lower rate of interest on your mortgage.

    You can reduce the monthly repayment interest total on your mortgage by…

    • Increasing the size of your deposit
    • Improving your credit score
    • Choosing your loan term carefully
    • Shopping around for a more affordable mortgage

    How does the mortgage term affect £200k mortgage repayments?

    Mortgages are usually 25 years in length but you can take out a mortgage over a shorter or a longer term if you prefer.

    It’s sometimes advisable to opt for a longer term as this is one way to reduce your monthly repayments. This will help you make savings each month although it’s worth noting that the total capital repayment of your mortgage will be larger due to the extra and total interest paid over the lifetime of the loan.

    Short-term mortgages come with lower interest rates but the monthly repayment will be higher because the mortgage will be spread over a smaller period.

    When deciding on the loan term, it is advisable to consider how much you can feasibly afford to pay each month. The table below indicates how much you will be expected to pay on a £200k mortgage at 3% interest between 5 and 30 years.

    Term Monthly Repayment Interest Total Repaid
    30 years £843 £103,495 £303,495
    25 years £948 £84,478 £284,478
    20 years £1,106 £66,169 £266,169
    15 years £1381 £48,853 £248,853
    10 years £1,931 £31,729 £231,729
    5 years £3,594 £15,616 £215,616

    The table above is based on a £200,000 mortgage with an interest rate of 3%. We have rounded the amounts to the nearest £.

    How does the mortgage type affect £200k mortgage monthly repayments?

    The interest on your mortgage will be calculated differently depending on the type of mortgage you choose.

    Which mortgage types affect mortgage monthly repayments?

    Fixed-rate mortgage

    Your interest rate will be fixed over a set period of time. At the end of the timescale, you can negotiate a new mortgage fixed term rate or you can let your mortgage revert to your lender’s standard variable rate.

    Tracker mortgage

    Tracker mortgage interest rates will change in line with the Bank of England base rate during the duration of your mortgage. If the base rate is low, this can make your mortgage more affordable than some fixed-rate mortgages but if the base rate increases, you may have to pay more interest than someone on a fixed deal.

    Interest-only mortgage

    Your monthly repayments will be lower as you only pay the interest on your mortgage. However an interest only mortgage usually can come with a higher rate of interest so this might not be the cheapest overall option for you. You also have to make the capital repayment in full at the end of your mortgage. A standard repayment mortgage may be a better alternative for you, despite the higher repayments, if you are worried about paying the capital at the end of your term.

    Which type of mortgage is best for you?

    Well, that depends on the deals that are accessible to you and your financial circumstances. If you would like to know more, get in touch with one of our established online mortgage advisors and we will provide mortgage advice based on your situation.

    How does the mortgage deposit affect £200k mortgage repayments?

    If you can put down a higher deposit and if you have a good credit rating, your mortgage lender will see you as less of a risk. This can lead to a mortgage deal with better terms and a lower interest rate so your mortgage repayments should be lower.

    Mortgage deals will still be open to you with a lower deposit but you will have to pay more on your mortgage each month.

    How does credit history affect £200k mortgage repayments?

    With very few mortgage providers lending to applicants with a bad credit history, it’s advisable to do what you can to improve your credit rating if it is currently low.

    With a good credit score, you increase the chances of having your application for a mortgage approved and more deals will open up to you with favourable rates of interest and lower monthly repayments.

    It’s still possible to get a mortgage loan monthly payment with a poor credit score but your choice of lenders may be limited. Your mortgage repayments may also be higher to offset the financial risk to the lender.

    If your credit score is poor because you have a lot of other debts to pay, it might be worth delaying your mortgage until you are in a better financial position. This is because you take out a mortgage at your own risk. You will have extra costs to budget for if you purchase another loan and your home may be repossessed if you default on your mortgage payments. The equity released from your home may also be secured against it.

    Other mortgage costs

    When applying for a £200k mortgage, there are other costs that you need to factor in beyond the loan amount of your monthly mortgage repayments.

    As such, you should factor in these costs when you’re budgeting your finances.

    Other costs include mortgage fees, such as the arrangement fee when you set up your mortgage with the lender, and the valuation fee which you may be expected to pay when the lender values the property you intend to buy. If you decide to overpay your mortgage or exit your loan term early, you might also have to pay your lender early repayment charges.

    Other mortgage fees include the booking fee and mortgage account fee. If you choose to use the services of a broker, you may have to pay them a fee too. However, if you choose to use the services of YesCanDo Money, you won’t have to pay us anything as we are a FEE-FREE mortgage broker.

    You should also factor in property purchase costs, such as solicitors’ feesestate agent feeshomebuyers survey fees and stamp duty, and there may be other fees to consider too.

    How much salary do I need for a £200,000 mortgage?

    The amount of mortgage you will be permitted to borrow will be based on the income multiples used by the lender. Many lenders cap the mortgage multiple at 4.5 though some may consider lending an amount to you at 5 or 6 times your annual salary.

    For lenders that multiply your income by 4.5, you would need to be earning around £45,000 a year if you want to qualify for a £200,000 mortgage.

    If you find a lender that will multiply your income by 5 or 6, you could get a £200k mortgage with a salary of £37,000, provided you meet the rest of the mortgage lender criteria.

    If you are applying for a joint mortgage, both incomes would be multiplied by the lender. As such, you may be able to get a £200,000 mortgage with earnings at an average figure of £25,000 if the joint applicant has an approximate annual income of similar value.
