Q. I’ve paid off the mortgage, what now?

Answer: Congratulations! You’ve achieved what millions are trying to do. You have finally paid off your mortgage. This is a financial milestone.

You’ve probably been thinking for a while on what you can do with the money that you would have put towards the mortgage payments.

If you are still undecided, you could choose to:

  • invest the money into an investment fund
  • pay the money into an ISA
  • top-up your pension, or
  • use some of the money to help your children or grandchildren onto the property ladder

If you have ever thought about becoming a landlord, now may be the ideal time to do it. To release some capital to fund this, you could re-mortgage your property and use the money to purchase a buy-to-let property and benefit from the yields this brings.

Speak to a financial adviser about your options. They will have a wealth of knowledge and experience to share with you about how other people used their excess income once their mortgage was cleared.
