Which mortgage would you take between interest only and capital + interest

Hi Guys,

Im in the process of refinancing and im not sure which option i should take between the following options:

Both will have a sample 300k loan
Option A
LTV @60pc
IO rate: 4.85
C&I: 3.75

IO period for 1 year and C&I for 34 years.

Monthly payment would be 1212 for first year and then it would revert to 1302


Option B:
Rates remain the same.
IO period for 10 years and C&I for 25 years

Monthly payment would be 1212 for first 10 years and then would revert to 1542.



Which would would you take and why?

My thoughts are that option A would be more consistent and interest rate would be lower for more of the payment term although half of it can be expensed anyway. Option B gives more short term flexibility for the next 10 years but then the payment will be higher for the rest of the mortgage. Im wondering with inflation would it make sense to go for Option B maybe as money wont be worth as much in 10 years.

We are in a period of low inflation ( possibly deflation) and likely to remain so for a few years so money will not drop in value as you would hope

I think we are still in a period of inflation next year.

Buy to let. There is no rates at 2.5 for btl. Plus I prefer the flexibility a longer term offers. If I wanted to over pay. I can still do that.

If it's residential buy to let run a mile from the purchase. Your talking a 500k property which means it's too dear has too low a yield and unsafe to get a loan on it. If the tenant overholds for 2 years as they could if they wanted and your talking about saving a few bucks it isn't going to matter . If it's a commercial property that's different but also risky at that level. If rather 3 cheap industrial units etc something like that. Forget inflation , labour has no unions now and because of technology the need for labour is less meaning employers aren't bidding for labour . We're likely in 10-20 years of static labour rates meaning property which is fully priced will not increase .That's why you should pay the property in 20 years so it cashflows and works for you.
Can I ask who is lending at 3.75 that's a really good rate for B2Let

It’s residential and it’s a refi so I’m already in the game and have gone through both the good and the bad. I won’t name the lender as I’m still in the process but there isn’t many in the market so you should be able to find them. I’m doing it more for holding cash in this situation we’re in to make me more liquid Combined with increasing my mortgage term again to make it more flexible if I hit hard times.
