  • Where do I start?

    Moving home is a big step and there’s a lot to consider. Getting the right advice about a mortgage early in the process is one of the best things you can do. Knowing what you can afford is likely to influence which property you choose, and the last thing you want is to find your dream home and then discover you can’t buy it.

    The quickest way to speak to a mortgage specialist that can help you get on or move up the property ladder, or remortgage is to Book an Appointment.

    Our mortgage hub teams are ready and waiting to help, and will aim to get back to you within one working day.

  • How much can I borrow?

    The amount you can borrow depends on your income, outgoings and individual situation. You can get an idea of what you could borrow with our mortgage calculator, but for more detailed figures speak to one of our mortgage and protection advisors.

  • How much will it cost?

    On top of any deposit you may be putting down you’ll need to consider the other costs that come with moving home.

    You’ll need to factor in estate agency costs for the sale of your present home, and add conveyancing and Land Registry fees for the legal work involved. There may be costs associated with taking a new mortgage such as valuation and arrangement fees, and if you’re buying over £125,000 you will have to pay Stamp Duty Land Tax.

    Removal firm costs need to be budgeted for unless you’re doing it yourself, and it’s always wise to plan for any large purchases that you need to make in the first few days after moving in. Remember, if you’re leaving a home with built-in kitchen appliances and there isn’t any in your new home you could have a large bill just when you don’t need it!

  • Can I move my existing mortgage over to my new home?

    If you're an existing borrower with us and you wish to move home, porting is where you can transfer the terms and conditions of your existing mortgage to a new property.

    It's a straightforward process and most of our mortgage products are portable. Book an appointment with one of our mortgage and protection advisors for more information.
