Low start mortgage
The mortgage definition for Low start mortgage:
This is like a repayment mortgage, but with a difference. In the introductory period, only interest is paid back to the lender and not any of the capital outstanding. After this period, the repayments start in earnest. The total amount of interest and repayments over the life of the year are higher than with a normal repayment mortgage, but this sacrifice can be worth it if you need to severely restrict your outgoings during the low start period.
