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 £190,000.00 on a capital and interest (repayment) basis payable over 25 years initially on a fixed rate for 2 years fixed at 2.00% and then on our Standard Variable Rate (SVR) of 5.69% (variable) for the remaining 23 years you would pay:

1 monthly repayment of £10.38, followed by
24 monthly repayments of £804.02, followed by
276 monthly repayments of £1,152.73

The total amount payable would be £337,600.34 made up of the loan amount of £190,000.00 plus interest (£147,460.34) a funds transfer fee of £20 and legal fee of £120.  The overall cost for comparison is 5.0% 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.
