Cashback mortgages are pretty self-explanatory. After paying off your mortgage or after finishing your mortgage term, you will get some cash back.
The amount you get back is a percentage of what you have borrowed like 1 or 2%. Some lenders like to have a fixed price in the contract. Even if you have a long mortgage term, this is a fixed amount, and it will not increase over time.
Cashback mortgages come with both advantages and disadvantages. Such as, some Cashback Mortgages might come with a free property valuation or some fringe benefits.
