UK Accounting Glossary
A Cash Back mortgage does what it says on the tin! On completion of the mortgage, your lender will pay a percentage of the amount borrowed ‘back’ to you as a lump sum. The higher the cashback sum paid, the greater and more complex the number of strings likely to be attached to the mortgage.
You may be faced with high redemption penalties over several years should you wish to consider redeeming the mortgage early. You may also be offered a less competitive interest rate than is available elsewhere.
Be aware also that a cashback payment could, potentially, have implications for capital gains tax purposes.
