    Legal costs

  • Legal work is required when buying your home and is carried out by a solicitor, 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 (www.lawsociety.org.uk). 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.
  • For remortgages, we can carry out the legal work for you using title insurance (see note 3, incentives)
  • Incentives

  • No higher lending charge applies, we will take out an insurance policy to cover the associated risk of lending more than 75% of the purchase price/valuation of your property but we will not charge you for it.
  • We will carry out a standard mortgage valuation at our cost, providing the mortgage completes. If the mortgage does not complete and the valuation has been carried out, you are responsible for paying it. Where the valuation fee is payable, our normal scale of valuation fees apply.
  • 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).
  • Where ‘free legals’ apply, they are for remortgages only. The legal work will be carried out by Newbury Building Society using title insurance and the cost, which covers HM Land Registry fees, a title insurance premium and other disbursements will be paid by us. Title insurance is only available to applicants who are UK Nationals and resident in the UK at the time of completion. If for any reason the remortgage does not take place, you will need to pay any legal costs incurred (maximum £250).  The ‘free legals’ service does not include the legal work involved for registering unregistered land or transferring property from one person to another (the names and addresses of the borrowers must agree precisely with those held at HM Land Registry).  If legal work is required in these areas, a solicitor will be required to act at your cost.
  • 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 £150,000 mortgage on a house valued at £200,000 would mean a LTV of 75%.
  • All loans over 70% LTV must be on a capital and interest repayment basis.
  • Application fee

  • 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 Key Facts Illustration (KFI) 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.
  • 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.
