Interest Rate:

  • 3.3% variable (our standard variable rate minus 2.39% for 2 years)

  • The Society reserves the right to withdraw the discounted rate if you cease to occupy the property as your main residence.  The Society’s standard variable rate, applicable at that time, would then apply.

Representative Example

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 £157,500.00 on a interest only (repayment) basis payable over 25 years initially on a discounted variable rate of 3.30% (equal to 2.39% 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 £213.01, followed by
24 monthly repayments of £431.98, followed by
276 monthly repayments of £743.34

1 final payment off £157,500.00

The total amount payable would be £373,382.37 made up of the loan amount of £157,500.00 plus interest (£215,742.37) a funds transfer fee of £20 and legal fee of £120.  The overall cost for comparison is 5.5% 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.


  • This product is portable.  If you move home, this mortgage product may be transferred to your new property (subject to terms and conditions).  A portability fee is payable at the time of porting the mortgage at the prevailing rate.
