  • Early Repayment Charge:  If the mortgage is repaid either in whole or in part, or is transferred to an alternative product, within the first two years, then a charge equivalent to 3% of the amount being repaid or transferred will become due except on capital repayments of up to 10%, calculated on the original loan amount, made in any twelve month period from the date of completion.
  • A sealing fee/administration fee of £125 is payable on redemption of your mortgage.
  • Property Insurance:  Where buildings insurance is not taken out with the Society, an administration fee of £25 is payable prior to completion of the mortgage.  Prior to completion, the Society will need to be satisfied that the insurance cover meets its minimum requirements.  Full details of minimum requirements are available on request.
    The Society charges an administration charge of £25 to cover our costs in obtaining and registering details of your new policy and taking out a contingency insurance to protect our interest in the property should your policy be invalidated or cancelled.  No further charge is payable if you change insurer again in the future.  This charge is applied to all mortgage accounts if the customer arranges their own insurance at any time during the period of the mortgage.
