Lenders Offer 40 Year Mortgage Terms

Lenders Offer 40 Year Mortgage Terms


In welcome news for first time buyers, it’s been reported by Moneyfacts that as many as 60% of all mortgage deals will now last up to 40-years as standard. 


Traditionally, mortgages have lasted for approximately 25-years. However, longer mortgages have become more and more popular since the financial crisis.


40 year mortgages enable first time buyers the chance to keep their mortgage payments lower for a longer period. They also allow potential homeowners to qualify for a larger loan in order to purchase bigger and/or higher priced property.


With more financial commitments for individuals and their families, 40-year mortgages are a great way to make mortgage terms more manageable over a longer period of time.
