Representative Example (based on a house purchase):
The Annual Percentage Rate of Charge (APRC) varies with the circumstances of each mortgage. Here is a representative example of a loan secured on your main residential property: A mortgage of £160,500 on a capital and interest (repayment) basis payable over 25 years initially on a discounted variable rate of 2.24% (equal to 3.45% discount off our Standard Variable Rate) for 2 years and then on our Standard Variable Rate (SVR) of 5.69% (variable) for the remaining 23 years you would pay:
1 monthly repayment of £167.45, followed by
24 monthly repayments of £697.94, followed by
276 monthly repayments of £975.75
The total amount payable would be £286,564.01 made up of the loan amount of £160,500 plus interest (£125,725.01) with an application fee of £199, a funds transfer fee of £20 and legal fee of £120. The overall cost for comparison is 5.1% APRC representative.
Please note: the example above is for a residential property purchase only and assumes a payment date of 1st of the month. If you choose to pay your mortgage later in the month this will affect payments and could result in a higher APRC. For product transfers, re-arrangement and additional borrowing applications, certain fees do not apply. Please speak to your Mortgage Adviser for further details.
