At Tony Mounce Mortgages and Insurance, we are seeing that banks want P&I (Principal & Interest) repayments and are not readily rolling interest-only periods over once they have ended. This is where like-for-like refinancing comes in as it is based on the dollar part of the lending, not the structure of the loan. Therefore, new five year interest-only periods can commence.
