Mortgage holiday calculator

If you need a temporary break from your mortgage repayments, you can ask your lender for a ‘mortgage holiday’. You have until 31 October 2020 to apply. Read more about that here.

If you do take a holiday, you’ll still have to make up the payments and interest afterwards. Use this calculator to get a rough estimate of how it might affect you.

Enter your details
When did your initial term start?This is when you last remortgaged. If you haven’t done that yet, it’s when you completed (got the keys).
/
How long a mortgage holiday would you like to take?6 months is the most you can take if you’re on a holiday already. Otherwise it’s 3 months.

This is just an estimate. Always talk to your lender.

If you don’t want your payments to go up after your holiday, your lender has to give you other options. For example, they can extend your mortgage term by the number of holiday months you took. Or they can take a lump sum payment for those months instead. Note that lenders might also calculate ‘yearly’ interest differently – some lenders count it using 360 days a year. See what your lender is saying about mortgage holidays.

This calculator assumes you're on a fixed rate mortgage

If you're on a variable rate mortgage, chat to us and we can help.

If you're on your SVR, a remortgage could help

When your initial term ends, your lender puts you onto a more expensive rate, called a 'standard variable rate' or SVR. If you're on an SVR, or a few weeks away, switching your mortgage deal before you take a holiday could save you more money. Chat to us for free advice.

You can take a holiday of up to 6 months if you need to

If you can’t afford your repayments and you’re already on a mortgage holiday, you can extend that holiday to 6 months. But if you can afford your repayments, your lender will likely encourage you to keep your holiday to 3 months maximum.
