An early repayment charge will be payable if the mortgage is redeemed during the first two years.  The early repayment charge will be equivalent to 2% of the capital balance at the time of redemption.  Overpayments (monthly or lump sum) up to a total of 10% of the outstanding loan per year are allowed without charge.  Any amount repaid over the 10% limit will incur an early repayment charge of 2% on the excess amount.


  • No Application or Product Fee.
  • Mortgage valuation fee paid.  If you require a Homebuyers Report in addition to the mortgage valuation this can be arranged at the same time, but you would have to pay the additional fee.  The Society will meet the cost of one basic mortgage valuation.
  • Higher Lending Charge – Variable (see page 6 of the Guide to Mortgage Services Booklet).  Applicable if you borrow over 80% of the value of the property.  Paid by Eden District Council.  This is subject to satisfactory approval of a grant application to be made to Eden District Council.  If the grant application is not approved by Eden District Council then the mortgage application cannot proceed under this mortgage scheme.
  • Mortgage exit fee – £50.00.  Payable upon redemption of the mortgage.
  • The Society will, for this application, pay up to a maximum of £500 towards legal costs (including disbursements), if using the Society’s nominated solicitors, who will act for both the Society and borrower(s).  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.
  • The mortgage is not portable. If you wish to move house and require a loan, you will have to make a new application.  The benefits associated with the Eden Mortgage Boost scheme are payable only once.
  • Subject to suitable security and underwriting assessment.

Representative Example

A mortgage of £123,489.00 payable over 25 years on our discounted rate for 2 years at 0.76% below the Society’s current variable rate and then on our current variable rate of 4.75% (variable) for the remaining 23 years would require 24 monthly payments of £651.14 and 276 monthly payments of £700.58 plus one initial interest payment of £202.49.

The total amount payable would be £209,039.05 made up of the loan amount plus interest (£85,500.05) and a mortgage exit fee of £50.00

The overall cost for comparison is 4.7% APRC representative.
