    New endowment 8th Jul 17 at 11:55 AM
    Hi there

    I let my endowment go a few years back and need to start paying into something that will cover the mortgage, is an endowment still the best option?

    How much is outstanding on the mortgage? Could you convert to a repayment mortgage?

    No. Just pay extra per month to effectively make it a repayment mortgage, or take out a repayment mortgage instead.
