Interest payments on the help to buy Government loan begin in year six at a rate of 1.75% and will increase annually.
It is likely that when you took out the mortgage for your home you selected a 5 year fixed rate product. At the end of the 5 year period that mortgage product is due for renewal you will need to re-mortgage. This means switching to a new fixed rate mortgage product either with your existing lender or a new lender.
You may want to include the amount from your equity loan within your new fixed rate mortgage product when you re-mortgage.
