2 Year Fixed Rate Remortgage Help to Buy - Wales - F364

help to buy - Wales

This product is to be used in conjunction with the Help to Buy - Wales Scheme.

Help to Buy - Wales allows eligible purchasers to buy new-build homes with assistance from the Welsh Government in the form of a shared equity loan. This scheme can be offered to both first-time buyers and existing home-owners wishing to purchase a new-build property worth up to £300,000.

The interest rate for this product is fixed for two years, this means you can plan your finances with more certainty. At the end of the fixed rate period the interest rate will revert to our Standard Variable Rate.

Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage. Think carefully before securing other debts against your home.

Following receipt of a lump sum payment, the amount that you owe, and so the amount of interest you pay, is reduced immediately.

Further Information:

  • †In most circumstances remortgages will be on a like for like basis, however the Society will consider lending more than this, only for the purchase of further equity subject to Help to Buy scheme rules.
  • Houses Only.
  • Only available in Wales.
  • *You will not have to pay the usual legal fees in securing your new mortgage if our appointed solicitors are used. Our solicitors act for the Society only to ensure we have good legal claim over your property. You will have to pay for any additional legal work that the solicitors do which is beyond the usual scope of a simple remortgage, for example, change of your name, transfers of equity, deeds of postponement, merger of freehold and leasehold, remedy of any title defect, etc.
  • This product is only available to existing Help to Buy Wales users who wish to remortgage to the Society. For more information on the Help-to-Buy Wales Scheme, visit www.helptobuywales.co.uk.
  • Mortgage interest is calculated on a daily basis.
  • Our Tariff of Mortgage Charges gives details of the charges payable in connection with mortgage applications and additional administration following completion of your loan.
  • Borrowing above the amount owed to your current lender will only be allowed for the purchase of additional equity.
  • Loans available to persons aged 18 or over and are subject to status and valuation of a suitable property, over which security will be required. All lending will be subject to appraisal of the financial standing of the applicants.

Representative example:

A mortgage of £128,680 payable over 34 years initially on a fixed rate for 2 years at 2.50% and then on our current variable rate of 4.74% for the remaining 32 years would require 24 monthly payments of £468.51 and 384 monthly payments of £626.75.

The total amount payable would be £252,066.24 made up of the loan amount plus interest (£122,038.88), funds transfer fee (£25) and mortgage exit fees (£125).

The overall cost for comparison is 4.5% APRC representative.
