However, criticism has it that the mean maturity of a first-time purchaser has increased dramatically and conditions of up to 40 years will lead some with large mortgage repayments well into old age. Pictures show that House Prices last month witnessed their largest monthly increase for more than four years. There are already indications that individuals are choosing longer life covenants.
Initial home purchasers take out mortgage maturities between 27 and 30 years on averages. Ninety-nine percent of first-time purchasers now take out a more costly redemption mortgage. Extending a mortgage from 200,000 from 25 to 30 years will cut 100 pounds per months out of redemptions, although it will add more than 27,000 pounds to the sum finally repaid.
The extension of the maturity to 40 years reduces redemptions by a further 120 per cent per annum. Whilst the vast majority still opt for maturities of up to 25 years, others certainly need 30 years and to a smaller extent 35 years. After cutting back most of its mortgages after the 2007 and 2008 subprime crises, Santander has returned to the mortgage markets with mortgages that allow borrower repayment over 35 years.
While Halifax and across the country allow for maturities of up to 40 years, HSBC has a 30-year mark.
