Product key features

Who's the product for?

Due to the changing nature of the UK employment market our range of contractor mortgage products has been designed to help borrowers employed in the short term renewable contract arena.

Product related fees

There is an arrangement fee of £999 that can be paid up front by deducting the fee from the amount you borrow or added to the mortgage amount.

If you add the arrangement fee to the mortgage then you will pay interest on the fee at the same rate as your mortgage.

Mortgage amounts

The minimum mortgage amount is £50,000 and the maximum mortgage amount is £450,000.

The minimum property value is £75,000 increasing to £250,000 for properties located within the M25 corridor.

The maximum loan to value is 85% of the purchase price or valuation, whichever is lower.

Mortgage repayment terms

The minimum repayment term is 5 years and the maximum repayment term is 35 years.


Interest rate floor

The interest rate is floored which means that the rate on your mortgage cannot drop below 2.28%.

Early Repayment Charges

You can repay up to 10% of the original mortgage amount each year without being charged. Payments that exceed 10% will be subject to an Early Repayment Charge.

Additionally, if you redeem your mortgage or switch to another product during the discount rate product term then an Early Repayment Charge will apply.

The Early Repayment Charge will be calculated as follows:

  • 2% of the amount repaid until 31 July 2018; and
  • 1% of the amount repaid until 31 July 2019.
