Our mortgage products can change or be withdrawn at any time and are subject to underwriting.

Are you looking to buy your first home, move home, or remortgage? We could help you. We are the only police credit union to be able to help their members buy their own homes – something that we are very proud of!

We offer up to 95% Loan to Value mortgages, in order to help members in a wide range of situations. As payroll deduction is available in many forces across England and Wales, this allows you to repay your mortgage direct from your wages too, making repaying simple and straightforward.

Mortgages with your Credit Union

All mortgage applications are individually assessed by one of our in house Mortgage Advisers. Decisions are based on your ability to repay and not solely on your credit score.

When you begin the mortgage process with No1 Copperpot, we dedicate a personal Mortgage Adviser to you, who will take you through the entire process. We deal with all mortgage applications in-house, so if you have any questions you can contact us whenever suits you and we will be happy to assist.

How it works

This is our most flexible mortgage product in terms of early repayments and over-payments. Not only does this product have no arrangement fee, but it also has no early repayment or over-payment charges. This allows you to repay your mortgage as fast as you wish, without being penalised to do so. 

The interest rate on this mortgage is variable. Reviews of the standard variable rate will take place every month. Any amendment to the interest rate following the review will apply from the first day of the following month.

*APRC stands for the Annual Percentage Rate of Charge. It is an annual interest rate which takes account of fees and charges to reflect the total cost of your mortgage. The APRC allows you to easily compare quotes from different lenders.

Loan to Value Breakdown

This breakdown allows you to work out how much of a deposit you will need to go towards your mortgage, depending on the amount you wish to borrow.  The Loan to Value is the percentage of the amount we will lend to you, in relation to the amount the property is worth.

An example following the guidelines below, if you buy a house worth £200,000 we could lend you up to 95% of the property worth (£180,000), and you would need at least £10,000 as a mortgage deposit. 

Amount Borrowed £25,000 – £300,000 Over £300,000 – £400,000 Over £400,000 – £500,000
Loan to Value (maximum) Up to 95% Up to 80% Up to 70%

What you need to know

All mortgages are individually assessed by one of our Mortgage Advisers. This is based on your ability to repay and not solely on your credit score. Once your mortgage has been approved we will need a valuation of the property to be completed, by a surveyor of our choice. You must remember to budget for the cost of the valuation as the fee will be required at the start of the process and it is non-refundable in the event of your mortgage not completing. For more information about surveys, please click here.

A solicitor of your choice will have to be appointed to deal with the legal process and the cost will vary depending on your chosen solicitor and the individual property.

We also have our full Tariff of Charges available on our website.
