When does it show?


Just wondering - My building society lets you set your overpayments of over £500 to reduce the term of your mortgage..

I was wondering when this actually shows on your statement. I thought it would show immediately..

Will I have to wait for my yearly statement for the new end date to show?

  • It shows in the main balance, but not that the term has been reduced?

    I think they're all different - I OP over the phone and get them to confirm the new term to me. They follow up with a letter about ten days later confirming the new term.
