In the case of remortgages the title of the property to be mortgaged must be registered at the land registry prior to making an application for this mortgage product.

  • Product Fee – £500. Payable in advance. Refundable prior to completion. Can be added to loan (subject to LTV limits). Can be deducted from advance upon completion (subject to LTV limits).
  • Valuation Fee – Variable. Payable on application. Not refundable once the valuation has been carried out.
  • For properties valued up to £1m, the Society will meet the cost of one mortgage valuation.

  • Mortgage exit fee – £50.00. Payable upon redemption of the mortgage.
  • For remortgages on existing unencumbered owner occupied property the Society will, for this application, pay legal costs (including disbursements), if using the Society’s nominated solicitors, who will act for both the Society and borrower(s). For mortgage applications where additional legal work is required, you will be liable for the cost of any additional legal fees, but these will be agreed between you and the Solicitors before the additional work is carried out. Once legal works have commenced if you withdraw from the transaction or fail to take up the mortgage advance then you will become responsible for all the legal costs without a contribution from the Society.

This mortgage is portable, subject to suitable security and underwriting assessment.

Where any part of the loan is arranged on an interest only basis, the interest only element must not exceed 50% LTV. A suitable repayment vehicle sufficient to cover the interest only part of the loan needs to be in place.

Representative Example

A mortgage of £138,728.00 payable over 22 years on our discounted rate for 2 years at 2.00% below the Society’s current variable rate, making the current rate payable 2.75% (variable), and then on our current variable rate of 4.75% (variable) for the remaining 20 years would require 24 monthly payments of £700.96 and 240 monthly payments of £835.49 plus one initial interest payment of £156.78.

The total amount payable would be £218,515.66 made up of the loan amount plus interest (£78,768.66), an application fee of £199.00, a product fee of £500.00, a valuation fee of £270.00 and a mortgage exit fee of £50.00.

The overall cost for comparison is 4.5% APRC representative.
