Early repayment

Your one point of contact

During our mortgage process you’ll have one point of contact from start to finish.

Our underwriters consider your individual personal circumstances. That means we can take a sensible approach if you’re self-employed, a contractor, or if there’s another reason you might have difficulty getting a mortgage. The key is that we won’t lend more than you can comfortably repay. 


We pay the fees for your remortgage

We offer remortgage options that can cover most or all of the legal and valuation fees.

Legal assistance

We can appoint a reliable solicitor for you from our panel. They handle the legal process, and we handle their fees. In some unusual cases there are things we don’t cover – such as unusual search fees, change of name on title, transfer of equity and first registration of title.

We hand-pick the solicitors on our panel. However, if you’d prefer to use a different solicitor you’ll need to cover the fees yourself. (We don’t cover independent legal advice either.)

You can get legal assist for properties valued up to £2 million.

Free valuation

For properties valued up to £2 million, we can cover the cost of the basic valuation.

FAQs

  • How much can I borrow?

    It depends on how much the property costs and its rental income. The rent must be at least 125% of the mortgage payment.  We use an interest rate of 5.5%, which takes into account the possibility of future interest rate rises and costs related to the property.

  • Can I get a Buy to Let Mortgage if I don’t already own a home?

    No, you need to be an owner-occupier to get a Buy to Let mortgage with us. We accept first-time landlords though.

  • How much deposit do I need?

    It varies depending on what mortgage you have. Deposits start from a minimum of 25% of the purchase price.

  • How do you assess affordability?

    We'll review your personal circumstances and carry out a credit check. We also take rental income into account. 

  • Is there a maximum age I can take my mortgage up to?

    Yes, the maximum age you can be at end of your mortgage term is 80.

  • What’s the difference between a Fixed Rate mortgage and a Tracker mortgage?

    Fixed Rate mortgages have an interest rate that’s set for a fixed period of time. Your payment will stay the same during this time, no matter what other interest rates do.

    Tracker mortgages are a type of variable rate mortgage that follow (track) the movements of another rate, most commonly the Bank of England base rate.
