Term

Applicants must be at least 18 years old on application and normally not more than 85 at end of mortgage term.


Minimum mortgage term is 5 years and maximum term is 40 years.

 

Income Multiples

All mortgage applications are based on affordability.

As a guide we’ll lend up to:

  • Main income x 4.5, PLUS second income x 1 OR
  • Joint income x 3.5

For loans over 80% of the property valuation we’ll lend up to:

  • Main income x 4 PLUS second income x 1 OR

Joint income x 3

Any existing financial commitments will be taken into consideration when we calculate affordability

Repayment options

  • Capital and Interest
  • Interest only - available up to 75% of the property value or purchase price with a maximum loan size of £350,000. When applying, we’ll need confirmation that plans are in place to pay off the mortgage at the end of the term and we’ll ask about these plans occasionally throughout the mortgage term. Examples of these plans are normally endowment policies; stocks and shares ISAs; pension lump sums; and second/investment properties.
Remortgage Incentives

Free Basic Legal Service: We’ll provide a free basic legal service which means there’s no solicitors fees to pay. However, the solicitors we use will act only for the Society in the transfer of the mortgage and any additional services or advice will need to paid for by your client separately.
If your client wants to use their own solicitors, we’ll pay up to £250 towards legal costs.

Valuation Costs: A valuation of the property is needed as part the mortgage application. We’ll pay up to £375 for the cost of this.

Capital raising is allowed up to 90% of the property value for reasons such as divorce settlements, deposits for other properties or home improvements.
If  raising capital for debt consolidation, the maximum is 80% of the property value.
To raise funds on a property which currently has no mortgage on it or for business purposes, please speak to your Business Development Manager.

Security

A first charge will be taken over the property being remortgaged as security for the mortgage borrowing. 

 

Higher Lending Charge

For lending above 80% of the property valuation the Society will cover the cost of a Higher Lending Charge. All applications must fit our Lending Policy and also meet specific requirements

Early Repayment Charges

If you make overpayments of 10% or more of the loan amount in any 12 month rolling period during the initial period, and depending on which mortgage your customer has, the charges apply as follows:

  • For our 3-year mortgage, the charge will be equivalent to 3% of the outstanding balance amount in year 1 and 2 and 2% in year 3.
  • For our 5-year mortgage, the charge will be:

o          5% of the outstanding balance in the 1st year

o          4% of the outstanding balance in the 2nd year

o          3% of the outstanding balance in years 3 & 4

o          2% of the outstanding balance in year 5

After the initial period, the Society will not make an early repayment charge if the mortgage is on Standard Variable Rate and is repaid. However, there will be certain redemption fees that will need to be paid (see our mortgage product rates  leaflet for more information).

Insurance

We’ll need evidence that buildings insurance for the property is in place before we can release funds.
