At Darlington Building Society we are passionate about providing a mortgage that is right for you. We have expert mortgage advisors available in the branch who will take you through the process, explaining all you need to know and providing you with suitable solutions. Every mortgage application is considered individually and we use people, not computers to make our decisions so you can be sure that your needs will be listened to and understood.

Discount mortgages

With a discounted-rate mortgage, you get a reduction from our current standard variable rate for a set period. Your mortgage repayments may increase and reduce as our standard variable rate changes, but you will not pay the full standard variable rate of interest.

Standard variable rate mortgages

With a standard variable rate mortgage, we charge interest at our current standard variable rate. Any changes in our standard variable rate will increase or reduce your monthly mortgage payment.

Fixed rate mortgages

A fixed-rate mortgage allows you to plan your finances, safe in the knowledge that during the period the rate is fixed for, your mortgage repayments will not be affected by changes in the interest rate.

Tracker mortgages

With a tracker mortgage, the interest rate which you pay is linked to the Bank of England Base Rate. Your mortgage repayments may increase or decrease as the Bank of England Base Rate changes.

Buy to let mortgages

Our buy to let mortgages are for borrowers who are buying up to three properties which they plan to let. Find out more about the full terms and conditions of these mortgages. We support the CML Buy-to-Let: Statement of Practice

First time buyer mortgages

Our first time buyer mortgage is especially designed to make taking out your first mortgage as easy as possible.

Affinity mortgages

Do you want a mortgage which allows you to support a good cause? Our faithful mortgage is a discounted mortgage with a difference. With each completion £250 is donated to a designated charity. See individual products for further details.
