Our tariff of charges fully reflects the good practice principles, which are being used across the industry to help customers compare mortgages.
When looking at the fees that other firms charge, you may notice some that don’t appear in our tariff (below). This means we don’t charge you these fees.
||Charges for the cost of valuing your property, unless stated otherwise. Please see your Illustration for further information on this fee. Other homebuyer or structural surveys available at an additional cost.
