The benefits to never repaying your loan are reduced asset taxes. A low mortgage interest rate also means you can invest your money elsewhere where you get a better return. For example, I get twice the amount of interest on a term deposit in pounds than I pay on my mortgage here and I pay almost 5x the amount of interest on my UK mortgage than my Swiss mortgage.
Not really, if you are investing the money elsewhere rather than just spending it.
