Representative Example (based on a house purchase):

The Annual Percentage Rate of Interest (APR) varies with the circumstances of each mortgage.  Here is a representative example of a loan secured on your main residential property:  A mortgage of £185,000 on a capital and interest (repayment) basis payable over 25 years initially on a fixed rate for 5 years fixed at 2.95% and then on our Standard Variable Rate (SVR) of 5.69% (variable) for the remaining 20 years you would pay:

 1 monthly repayment of £14.95, followed by
60 monthly repayments of £870.42, followed by
240 monthly repayments of £1,099.14

The total amount payable would be £316,373.75 made up of the loan amount of £185,000 plus interest (£131,033.75) with an additional borrowing fee of £200, funds transfer fee of £20 and legal fee of £120.  The overall cost for comparison is 4.6% APR 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 APR.  For product transfers, re-arrangement and additional borrowing applications, certain fees do not apply.  Please speak to your mortgage adviser for further details.

Portability:

  • 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).
