YOUR MORTGAGE IS SECURED ON YOUR HOME. THINK CAREFULLY BEFORE SECURING ANY OTHER DEBTS AGAINST YOUR HOME. YOUR HOME MAY BE REPOSSESSED IF YOU DO NOT KEEP UP REPAYMENTS ON YOUR MORTGAGE.
- 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 (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.
- We will pay the first £700 of the standard mortgage valuation, (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.
- 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).
- 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.
- 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%.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- PLEASE NOTE: You should be aware that for the period you are paying interest only you are not reducing the capital borrowed.
- 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.
