The property should be your main residence, or there should be an authorised letting in place.
Your mortgage account must have less than one month's arrears (up to a maximum amount of £100 at the time of transfer) and there must be no more than one missed payment in the past 12 months. For Prospect borrowers, there must have been no missed payments within the last 24 months.
Your mortgage account must have been opened for at least one month.
The part(s) of your mortgage account being transferred to a new mortgage deal must have a remaining term of at least the same as the new deal.
The total amount being moved to a new deal must be at least £10,000.
You must pay any Early Repayment Charges on your existing mortgage deal, as applicable.*
You must meet all our other normal lending criteria .
There must be no specific conditions on your current mortgage that prevent you from changing to a new deal. We'll let you know if this applies to you.
We'll send through your formal transfer offer in the post within five working days (providing you meet our eligibility criteria).
You then need to sign your offer letter acceptance and the confirmation that you do not need advice on changing mortgage deal.
As soon as we receive your acceptance and your existing mortgage deal ends, we’ll switch you over to your new mortgage deal.
After that we'll confirm your new payment amount by letter and that's it, all done.
As soon as you receive your offer from us in the post you can pay any outstanding Product Fee or Early Repayment Charges. You can do this by calling us on 0345 166 9301*.
You should check your mortgage statement to see if you are still within your Early Repayment Charge (ERC) period for the part or parts of your mortgage you are wanting to transfer. If this is the case, then charges will apply should you do a transfer.
If the ERC period ends within the next 90 days, you can apply for your transfer now but it will not take place until after the ERC period has ended, unless you tell us that you wish to complete the transfer earlier than this, and agree to pay the charge. Any applicable early repayment charges must be paid on completion of the transfer.
