3 Year Discount Mortgage D489

This discounted variable rate mortgage could be for you if you are buying your first home, moving house or simply moving your mortgage from another lender in England, Wales and Scotland.

With this discounted mortgage you benefit from a reduction in our current standard variable interest rate until 31 May 2024. Until then your payments may increase or decrease as our standard variable rate changes, but you will not pay the full standard variable interest rate. If you pay off your mortgage during this time, you will pay an early repayment charge of the following tariffs:

3% of the outstanding balance

Before 31st May 2022

2% of the outstanding balance

Before 31st May 2023

1% of the outstanding balance

Before 31st May 2024

You can make one lump sum repayment of 10% off your mortgage during the discount period.

Representative example summary

If all or part of your income is in a currency other than Pound Sterling (£), you should be aware about the risks of fluctuations in currency exchange rates. If the value of the relevant currency moves against you by at least 20% then that may make it more difficult for you to afford your mortgage payments.

The Representative Example is based on mortgages sold between 01/01/2018 – 31/12/2018 and if you were to take your mortgage product as at 01/02/2021.
