Representative example

A mortgage of £400,000 payable over 20 years initially on our standard variable rate, currently 4.10% with a discount of 1.00% for 60 months giving a current rate payable of 3.10% and then on our standard variable rate, currently 4.10% for the remaining 15 years would require 60 monthly payments of £1,033.33 and 180 monthly payments of £1,366.67 plus one initial interest payment of £203.84.

The total amount payable would be £708,904.24 made up of the loan amount plus interest of £308,204.24 an application fee of £600 and a MEAF of £100.

Additional information



    Legal costs

  • Legal work is required when buying your home and when switching your mortgage to us from another lender (remortgage). When buying your home the legal work is carried out by a solicitor and is payable by you. We can use the same solicitors as you, providing there is a minimum of Four Approved Managers/Licence Holders and they are registered on The Law Society website ( Licenced conveyancers are also acceptable for residential business only. The conveyancer must be registered with the Council of Licenced Conveyancers and be in a firm with at least four Approved Managers/Licence Holders.
  • Incentives

  • You can upgrade to a Home Buyers report if you wish and if you would prefer a full building survey, we can give you the names of some local surveyors who can organise this for you. (see our Mortgages Explained booklet for valuation and home buyer fees).
  • If an existing borrower who is not moving house would like a revaluation carried out to assess which LTV tier they qualify for they will be required to pay a revaluation fee (see our Mortgages explained booklet for details).
  • We will pay the first £700 of the standard mortgage valuation, providing the mortgage completes (this will cover properties valued up to £1,000,000). If your valuation fee is more than £700 (i.e. your property value is more than £1,000,000), you are responsible for paying the difference. If the mortgage does not complete and the valuation has been carried out, you are responsible for paying it.
  • Maximum loan to value

  • Loan to value (LTV) is the proportion of the value or price of the property (whichever is lower) that you borrow on a mortgage. For example, a £100,000 mortgage on a house valued at £200,000 would mean a LTV of 50%.
  • Fees

  • The application fee can be added to the mortgage and is refundable if the mortgage does not take place. If you add the application fee to your mortgage, this increases the amount you borrow and will also increase your monthly payments.
  • A Mortgage Exit Administration Fee (MEAF) applies when you repay your mortgage. Please see our Tariff of charges leaflet and your European Standardised Information Sheet (ESIS) for details.
  • Timescales

  • House purchases must complete within three months of the date of the formal mortgage offer. Remortgages must complete within three months from the date the application is received. Further advances must complete within three months of the date of the further advance offer.
  • Where existing borrowers transferring their mortgage are not in an early repayment charge period, the transfer must take place with two weeks of the mortgage offer.
  • For new build properties the mortgage offer is valid for up to 6 months. The application must be able to complete in the product time scales. Therefore, the new build property must be completed and available for occupation within six months of the mortgage offer.
  • Portability

  • All our mortgages are portable, which means that if you move house within an early repayment charge period the product can be transferred to your new mortgage, up to the value of the product outstanding at redemption, without charge. If the loan amount on your new mortgage is lower, there may be a charge based on the difference between the old and the new loan amount. A higher lending charge may be applicable for the new mortgage.
  • Other charges

  • Charges applying to the ongoing administration of your mortgage are detailed in our Tariff of charges PDF, which you will be given before your mortgage completes.
  • Interest only

  • PLEASE NOTE: You should be aware that for the period you are paying interest only you are not reducing the capital borrowed.
  • Important information

  • The mortgage is payable on death or a permanent move into residential care.
  • In the case of a joint mortgage, we will take into account the ability of the surviving borrower to meet the mortgage commitment on death of a joint borrower or when a joint borrower moves into long term care.
  • You are strongly recommended to seek independent legal advice before entering into this mortgage contract.
  • You are strongly recommended to discuss this mortgage arrangement with your family or anyone else who may be affected, and to consider a lasting Power of Attorney.
