Offset Mortgage

In an offset mortgage, a borrower’s current and savings accounts balances are deducted from the size of the mortgage i.e. deposits and savings are offset against the mortgage principal each month. Mortgage interest is then calculated against the lower, netted amount. For the purposes of calculation, deposit and savings balances will not earn interest as long as they are linked to the mortgage.
