Introduction to Offset Mortgage
Offset mortgages offset the amount you owe on your mortgage against the amount you have in your savings. The amount in your savings account is taken away by borrowers from the amount you owe on your mortgage. The amount of money in your account is not used for paying off your mortgage; rather, it helps reduce the amount of interest.
