How it works

This product allows you to plan ahead by knowing what your repayments will be for the next three years. By choosing a fixed-rate mortgage, you can be confident that for the fixed term your repayments will remain the same. This means that if interest rates go up, you know that your repayments won’t be affected. However, if interest rates drop, you could end up paying more. Therefore it is important to think about the amount of time that you would like your mortgage interest rate fixed. 

After these three years are complete you will be moved onto our Standard Variable Rate Mortgage. Our Mortgage Team are here to talk to you at any time during your mortgage, and will help to find something best suited for you.

Current rate

Product Three Year Fixed Rate
Initial interest rate 5.50%
Followed by Standard Variable Rate 4.5%
The overall rate for comparison is 4.9% APRC*
Arrangement fee None
Early Repayment Charge** 3%
The initial interest rate will be fixed for three years from the advance of the loan.

*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.

**ERC of 3% of the outstanding loan amount is payable at the time of redemption during the fixed rate period.

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 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 upon 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.
