Discount Variable Rate Mortgages

Our Discounted Variable Rate mortgages could be for you if you are purchasing your first home, moving house or looking to remortgage from another lender in England, Wales and Scotland.

With Discounted Variable Rate mortgages you benefit from a reduction in our current standard variable interest rate until a set date specified on the product terms.

Until that date, your payments may increase or decrease as our standard variable rate changes, but you will not pay the full standard variable interest rate.

Your mortgage is secured on your home. Think carefully before securing other debts against your home. Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage.

Please note: as of close of business on Friday 18th September, Darlington Building Society are amending our minimum loan size for new mortgage applications to £100,000. We will consider applications for a minimum loan of £25,000 from applicants where the postcode of the mortgaged property is within the Society’s operating postcode area: DL, TS, YO, DH, SR & HG. The minimum loan size applies only to new mortgage applications and does not impact existing members seeking additional borrowing, product transfers or any other servicing based requests.

A mortgage of £123,000 payable over 20 years initially on a discounted variable rate for 2 years at 2.25% and then on our current Standard Variable Rate of 5.30% (variable) for the remaining 18 years would require 24 monthly payments of £639.02 and 216 monthly payments of £815.81.

The total amount payable would be £191,641.44 made up of the loan amount (£123,000) plus interest (£68143.01) product fee £289, account fee of £120 and mortgage exit fee of £90.

The overall cost for comparison is 4.8% APRC representative.
