Fee information

Application fee
£199 (non-refundable)
Must be paid at the time of submitting mortgage application and will be debited only after passing an initial assessment.
Completion fee
£800 (non-refundable)
This fee can be paid before the start of the mortgage or you can elect to add this to the mortgage loan and it will be deducted from the mortgage advance on completion. By electing to add fees to the loan, you will pay interest on them at the same interest rate as your mortgage throughout the mortgage term and this will affect interest charges and payment calculations. If preferred, fees that have been added to the loan may be repaid by a separate capital payment at any time after the start of the mortgage and this will result in lower monthly payments and reduced interest charges.
Valuation fee
Free where the price or value of the property is £1million or less.
Fees reference table
Early repayment charge
During year 1: 2% of the amount repaid early plus fees During year 2: 1% of the amount repaid early plus fees
This charge is calculated as a percentage of the amount repaid early, excluding any arrears of interest, or other charges. The early repayment charge is payable if you repay any amount in excess of 10% of the mortgage balance in any one year.
Overpayments
Overpayments of up to 10% per year may be made without incurring the early repayment charge.
Mortgage exit admin fee
£125 (non-refundable)
