Over the next 30 years 2.6 million interest only mortgages due for repayment.

• Approx. 48% of all interest only borrowers are likely to have an average shortfall of £71,000.
• Lenders stepping up warnings to prevent payment shocks.

On 2 May 2013, a BBC article commenting on the recent FCA report stated that over one million people will face a financial crunch when they have to pay off their interest-only mortgages, with an average shortfall of £71,000.

Lenders will now be stepping up warnings to homeowners to prevent payment shocks.

“My advice to borrowers is not to bury their head in the sand. This report is a call to action.” Martin Wheatley, Chief Executive of the FCA.
