Capital and Interest repayment, this is where each month you pay some of your mortgage balance and the interest and by the end of your mortgage term the mortgage will be repaid in full, Interest only, this is where you only repay the interest each month, at the end of the mortgage term you will still owe the amount you borrowed. Or Part and Part, this is a combination of the above where there still would be an element of the mortgage balance outstanding. For any interest only or part and part mortgage you would normally need an acceptable repayment strategy in place.
