Relax knowing how much you'll pay for 2 years

You will pay our fixed rate of 2.24% for 2 years, then revert to our Standard Variable Rate for the rest of the mortgage term – currently 5.24%.

The overall cost for comparison is 4.7% APRC

The minimum deposit you will need at this rate is 25% of the purchase price. You will need to contribute at least 5% of the purchase price, the remainder of the deposit will need to be provided via a Help to Buy Equity Loan.   

Representative example

A mortgage of £153,959.00 payable over 19 years initially on a fixed rate for 2 years at 2.24% and then on our Standard Variable Rate of 5.24% for the remaining 17 years would require 24 monthly payments of £829.27 and 204 monthly payments of £1,041.94.

The total amount payable would be £232,657.24 made up of the loan amount plus interest (£78,474.24), an application fee of £199.00 and a mortgage funds release fee of £25.00.

This example assumes the mortgage funds release fee is added to the loan and that interest is charged on this fee over the mortgage term.

The overall cost for comparison is 4.7% APRC representative.

If you want to do more than a product switch, like change your LTV it might be best to have a new valuation, take a look at our guide for more information.

When borrowing additional funds you may require a revaluation if the value of your property has changed since you originally took your mortgage out with us. If substantial changes have been made to your property you may require a full standard valuation, take a look at our guide for more information.

We will pay for a standard valuation. There are other types of valuations available, for more information on these, why we need a valuation and what we use it for take a look at our guide

Early repayment charges

These are the charges that will apply to your mortgage if you want to overpay or repay early.

Can I make overpayments?

While in your fixed rate term you can make overpayments of up to 10% of your mortgage balance during every 12 month period without having to pay an early repayment charge.

This 10% overpayment allowance is calculated using the balance of your mortgage at the time it completes. Each 12 month period starts on the anniversary of your mortgage completing.

If you choose a new mortgage deal with us at any point we’ll use this balance and date to calculate your overpayment allowance.

Any amount repaid over 10% of your mortgage completion date balance will incur an early repayment charge equal to:

  • 3% of the excess overpayment in year one
  • 2% of the excess overpayment in year two

What if I want to repay early?

If you switch your loan to another lender, a different mortgage deal with us, or repay it in full before the end of the fixed rate term, you’ll have to pay an early repayment charge equal to:

  • 3% of the outstanding balance in year one
  • 2% of the outstanding balance in year two

 

What if I want to move home?

If you move house during the fixed rate term you may transfer the balance and remaining term of the Fixed Rate Mortgage to your next home, without penalty. These requests will be subject to our underwriting criteria and the terms can't be extended to any further borrowing if the product has been withdrawn.

What happens at the end of my fixed rate deal?

At the end of the fixed rate term, your mortgage will revert to our Cambridge Variable Mortgage and you’ll pay our Standard Variable Rate for the remainder of the mortgage term. From this point you’ll be able to make as many overpayments as you like without incurring any early repayment charges. We’ll write to you when your fixed rate comes to an end to provide you with full details of our Cambridge Variable Mortgage.
