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.

Legal Fees

Assisted Legal Fees**

Valuation Fees

One Free Standard Valuation (on properties up to £1 Million in value)

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 loan amount 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.
  • *For Remortgages, the maximum Loan to Value is the amount of a mortgage loan expressed as a percentage of the value of the property against which the loan will be secured.
  • **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.
  • If you move house during the fixed 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, the Loan to Value must be no greater than 65% and it is within England & Wales. 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.
  • Our remortgage products are available to new borrowers who are looking to switch their mortgage from another lender.
  • For loans greater than £700,000 please contact us.
  • 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.
  • 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 £146,068 payable over 17 years and 9 months initially on a fixed rate for 2 years at 1.88% and then on our current variable rate of 5.24%  for the remaining 15 years and 9 months would require 24 monthly payments of £807.07 and 189 monthly payments of £1,026.77.

The total amount payable would be £213,554.21 made up of the loan amount plus interest (£67,321.21) and mortgage exit fees (£125).
