The Ipswich, which offers fee free overpayments of up to 50% on all mortgage products, has reported increased interest in this facility. A standard feature amongst the Ipswich’s range, heightened awareness has seen it become a recent hot topic of conversation for broker enquiries whose clients are looking for the flexibility to either make regular overpayments or pay off a lump sum. 

Michelle Stevens, Head of Mortgage Sales, explained “we’ve offered this facility for a number of years now, which is amongst the most generous in the marketplace and offered on both our fixed and discount rate across our product portfolio – including Buy to Let.” 

Andrew Sadler, Business Development Manager, added “over the past month, a third of broker enquiries have focused on the overpayment aspect; most are surprised to learn this is not a new offering. Interestingly they have reported that whilst clients may not be in an initial position to make overpayments, it is the flexibility which appeals.” 

The 50% overpayment allowance is calculated on the original loan amount. For more information, see
