We'll only lend you a certain percentage of the property valuation. You may not need to pay a deposit and you may be able to borrow more than you currently owe. This will depend on the property valuation and how much you owe on your current mortgage, as well as how much we think you can afford to borrow.

While we'll consider many types of property, we've a responsibility to ensure that a property is suitable security for a mortgage. As a result, we'll not lend against properties where the valuation is below £40,000.
An Agreement in Principle, also known as a 'Decision in Principle' or 'Mortgage Promise', is useful if you want to know if you could remortgage to us. All we need is a few personal details about you and anyone else who will be named on the mortgage. Then we’ll contact a credit reference agency for a credit search and give you a credit score. If you reach our pass mark, we’ll confirm that we could offer you a mortgage (subject to you completing a full mortgage application).

It's a requirement of your mortgage to have buildings insurance. This covers the bricks and mortar, fixtures and fittings. It's also a good idea to take out contents insurance as well - this protects all your possessions in your home, from furniture to jewellery.
You may want to look into insurance to protect your mortgage for example Life Cover and Critical Illness Cover.
This will depend on the mortgage product, there may be a product fee to pay and early repayment charges if you repay early. Any product fees can be added on to your mortgage on completion. There could be other charges and standard costs which you may have to pay during the course of setting up your mortgage. You'll be charged interest on any fees, charges and standard costs added to your loan.
When you take out your mortgage, you arrange to have a fixed or variable rate product for a period of time. At the end of this time, the product will end and your loan will usually be transferred to one of our lender variable rates. At this point, you may choose to move it to a new product for a further period of time.
It's sometimes possible to take a product rate with you to a new mortgage on a different property - we sometimes call this 'porting‘. Your Mortgage Illustration and offer letter will say if any of your products are portable.
