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?

With our RIO Mortgage you can make as many overpayments as you like without incurring any early repayment charges.

What if I want to repay early?

If you switch your loan to another lender or repay it in full, you can do so without incurring any early repayment charges.

What if I want to switch my RIO Mortgage to another property?

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will be subject to our underwriting criteria and can't be extended to any further borrowing if the product has been withdrawn.

Representative example

A mortgage of £155,375.00 payable over 40 years on our Retirement Interest Only Variable Rate of 3.44% would require 480 monthly payments of £447.53.

The total amount payable would be £370,989.40 made up of the loan amount plus interest (£214,814.40), a completion fee of £500.00, a valuation fee of £275.00 and a mortgage funds release fee of £25.00.

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

The overall cost for comparison is 3.5% APRC representative.
