Making some home improvements? Paying for a wedding? You could borrow more on your current Halifax mortgage to put your plans into action.
Borrowing more on your mortgage could be right for you if:
You could borrow up to 85% of your home’s value, or 75% if you have an interest-only mortgage.
We can’t offer additional borrowing to customers who are taking a payment holiday.
The minimum amount of additional borrowing you can request is £10,000. If you want to borrow less than this, one of our other borrowing options might suit you better.
The most you can borrow depends on your individual circumstances, such as your current mortgage balance and the market value of your home.

There are a number of reasons you can borrow more, such as for a new kitchen or bathroom, which could increase the value of your home. You could combine your existing debts, such as credit cards or loans, into one monthly payment to save money on interest charges. You could even make your dream home a reality.
You should think about your other options before you borrow any extra money against your home. It will increase your total mortgage debt and your home could be at risk if you fall behind on your payments. If you are thinking about combining your existing debts, we can help you to decide if adding them to your mortgage is the best move for you.Back to the top
It can be the same as your current mortgage term, or you can choose a different one.
With a repayment mortgage, if you choose a longer term your monthly repayments will be lower but you’ll pay more in interest charges. If you choose a shorter term, you’ll save money in interest payments but your monthly payment amount will be higher.Back to the top
Additional borrowing is secured against your home, so it's important to remember that your home could be repossessed if you don't keep up with your repayments.Back to the top

If you ask to borrow more on your mortgage, we'll tell you your loan to value (LTV) when you apply. It’s based on your overall mortgage balance, including any extra borrowing, and how much we think your property is worth.
You can also find your current LTV by visiting HelloHome from Mobile or Online Banking.
There's currently no arrangement fee to set up your additional borrowing or to switch to a new deal, but you may need to pay a product fee for some mortgages.
You can add a product fee to your additional borrowing amount, but it’s important to consider that you'll need to pay interest charges on the fees.

If you’re in the final three months of your existing fixed rate, or you’re already on one of our standard variable rates, you can compare your options for borrowing more and switching deals at the same time.
If you have between three and six months remaining on your existing fixed rate, you can secure a new rate for your existing mortgage now, but you won’t be able to borrow more online at the same time. If you’d like some help, you can speak to one of our Mortgage and Protection Advisers to discuss your options.
If you have more than six months remaining on your existing fixed rate, you will probably need to pay an Early Repayment Charge to switch to a new deal now. If you start to apply online, we’ll just show your extra borrowing options. You can get in touch if you’d like to discuss switching deals.
If you also want to change your term or repayment type, please contact us to discuss your options with one of our Mortgage and Protection Advisers.

This type of insurance can give you the peace of mind of knowing that you and your loved ones will be able to keep your home, even if something happens to you. It could help to pay off your mortgage in the event of your death, or if you become too ill to work.
