Acceptable Credit Criteria

This product accepts our standard credit criteria click here for details

Higher Lending Charge

The Society will purchase a Higher Lending insurance to provide additional security where the amount of the loan exceeds 80% of the valuation of the property.

Early Repayment Charge (ERC)

Early Repayment Charges as detailed below are payable on any lump sum or full redemption repaid over 10% of the capital balance.

  • 3% up to 31/05/2023
  • 2% up to 31/05/2024
  • 1% up to 31/05/2025

Overpayments

During the early repayment charge period lump sum overpayments up to 10% of the capital balance per annum may be made without attracting an early repayment charge. Should the total of lump sum overpayments exceed 10% within this period, the excess will attract an early repayment charge.

Once the early repayment charge period has ended overpayments can be made at any time.
If an overpayment of £500 or more is made, we will recalculate the monthly payment the following month.
