Ways to Make Your Mortgage More Affordable
Intro to ways to manage mortgage repayments increasing

Extend Your Mortgage Term
Check with a broker before going directly to your bank
If you've got some time until your mortgage deal ends, overpaying now will mean you have a smaller overall loan when you come to renew. Even if you only overpay by £25 per month, this can make a big difference in the long run. Check with your lender how much you are able to overpay, as some charge a penalty for overpayments.
Paying off loans and other creit commitments before applying for a mortage may well end up boosting your affordability in the eyes of the lender, and possibly get you a better deal. You may also be able to consolidate your debts into your mortgage.   Think carefully before securing other debts against your home. Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage or any other debt secured on it.
It is possible to change part or all of you mortgage from repayment to interest-only. Whilst interest- only will keep your monthly payments lower, you aren't actually paying off any of your mortgage so you would need to think about what you would do when it came to paying it back. This is not advised as a long-term solution.
Lenders met with the Chancellor and agreed that they will be more reasonable to those struggling.  Don't worry about this by yourself.   Reaching out via either text, Watsapp, phone call, email or webchat, will make you feel more in control.
