Common new mortgage enquiries
We have a comprehensive range of mortgages to suit your needs, but choosing the right one to suit you may not be that straightforward. To help make your decision easier, we have an online Mortgage Calculator or if you'd prefer to speak to one of our dedicated mortgage experts, simply call them on 08458 50 37 05. Lines are open 8am to 8pm Monday to Friday, and 9am to 4pm on Saturdays.
This will depend on your circumstances and your monthly financial commitments. You can get an estimate of how much you could borrow using our affordability calculator.
If you have a particular amount in mind, you could apply for an online Mortgage Promise to see if we could lend you the money.
While we will consider many types of property, we have a responsibility to ensure that a property is suitable security for a mortgage.
As a result, we will not lend against properties where the lower of the valuation or purchase price is below £40,000.
Halifax now offer a range of Buy to let mortgages, so if you've considered purchasing a property to let, or investing for the longer term, then we could help.

APR stands for 'Annual Percentage Rate' and is the rate you actually pay for your mortgage. An APR allows you to compare different mortgage deals, and takes into account:
- The interest rate (the initial rate plus subsequent rates)
- Any fees and charges e.g. product fees
- Length of the mortgage
Normally the mortgage is arranged once you've had an offer on a property accepted. However, you may find it useful to know how much you can borrow in advance, so you can find a property in your price range.
You can do this with a Mortgage Promise, either online or over the phone. This tells you how much we could lend you (subject to a satisfactory valuation of the property and the information you provide us being correct).
Once you've had an offer accepted on the property you want, you'll need to contact us again so you can make a full mortgage application.
We offer a variety of mortgage deals with varying deposit amounts, starting at a minimum of 5%.
When applying for a new mortgage, you may be asked to provide proof of income. Acceptable documentation includes wage/salary slips or if you are self-employed, 3 years accounts.
For more information call 08458 50 37 05. Lines are open 8am to 8pm Monday to Friday, 9am to 4pm Saturday.
We offer mortgages to the self-employed, although we may need to see some additional information, for example, evidence of earnings, accounts etc.

In view of the housing difficulties in some areas, it has become difficult to recruit essential staff, (referred to as key workers). These include teachers, health workers, police and firemen.
The Government set up the key worker home initiative to help employees in these occupations buy their first home. The assistance is directed at key workers in London, the South East and hot spots in Eastern and South Western England.
