    Oh that’s a cracking number L9XSS!

    how much will you need to pay each month to pay off within three years?

    best of luck with it  :)
    First home- Oct’16 until June’21: £170.995- Overpayments made £13,784 (25% extra!).
    New forever home- Sep’21 £309,449 @ 2.05%. Plan to clear it before 30 years!!!!!!

    I have some savings I’m going to use to offset the remaining 19 months (so about 21k).
    Thanks for your reply. 😊

    Ok done some number crunching and I can finally pay off my mortgage in 22 months. That means I will have paid the 25 year term off 11 years early. Too early to put the champagne on ice just yet.......😂

    Will celebrate it with you! What a feeling to know you own your own home, every brick. I will be celebrating with a bottle or two of Champagne! My payments of £984 will end.

    Similar, we pay £977 per month,  but also about £45 pm critical illness which covers outstanding mortgage if anything happens to me or my husband,  so in all we will be £1022 better off!!! Yay!
