Repayment Type

Mixed Repayment/Interest only mortgages will be allowed but the interest only element cannot exceed 50% LTV. The latter only applies to new borrowers. Existing borrowers will be allowed to switch into a new product and port their interest only loan if they move house. If they wish to borrow more than their current interest only element this must be on a repayment basis. Where borrowers wish to continue with an interest-only loan Society staff must establish how they intend repaying this and where possible encourage those that are able to do so to convert all or part to a repayment basis.

Early Repayment Charge (ERC)

During the first 2 years an early repayment charge of 3% of the amount repaid will be incurred. After this period no early repayment charges apply.

Overpayments

Regular overpayments are not permitted during the first 2 years from completion. Regular overpayments are amounts collected with, and in addition to, your monthly mortgage payments. You may make capital repayments of up to 10% of the original sum borrowed in each of the first 2 years without an Early Repayment Charge. However, during the first 2 years any additional amount repaid above the 10% permitted will be subject to an Early Repayment Charge of 3% of the amount repaid in years 1 & 2. 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

  • Available in England and Wales.
  • If you move house during the fixed rate period you may be able to transfer these product terms, up to the amount of this loan. You can only transfer these terms if you occupy the new property and it is within England and Wales. The loan to value must be no greater than 65%. The new loan must complete at the same time you redeem this loan and you must still meet the Society’s lending criteria at that time. An Early Repayment Charge will apply if: you do not take out a new loan with the Society; the new loan does not meet the criteria for this product; or the new loan is for less than this loan.

Representative Example

A mortgage of £146,256 payable over 24 years and 9 months initially on a fixed rate for 2 years at 2.29% and then on our current variable rate of 5.24% for the remaining 22 years and 9 months would require 24 monthly payments of £645.57 and 273 monthly payments of £861.65.

The total amount payable would be £250,849.13 made up of the loan amount plus interest (£104,468.13) and mortgage exit fees (£125).
