This is interest charged from the date of completion to the end of that month.This is added to the balance, where interest will be charged until the amount is repaid.
When should I expect my annual statement to arrive?
Annual mortgage statements coincide with the UK tax year and are sent free of charge. They are received by the end of the first week of May.
How do I order mortgage statements not coinciding with the UK tax year?
Additional copies of mortgage statements can be prepared and can be requested by phone, email, fax or post.
Can I change the terms of my mortgage?
It may be possible to change the terms of the mortgage in line with current criteria. You will need to request an illustration either by phone or in writing.

To make an overpayment you will need to request an authorisation form via post or telephone on 01252 812271. Overpayments are subject to a limit in each 12-month period and you should confirm your requirements with us prior to making any payments. Source of funds will be required and should be sent at the same time as the overpayment to avoid delay in the application of funds. Please note that drawdown of overpayments made on flexi accounts is subject to lending criteria at the time. This means that some, or all, of these overpayments may not be available to be drawn down in the future.
How can I make a capital repayment?
Capital repayments can be made by most cards, banker’s drafts, cheque or bank transfer. Funds received may be subject to early repayment charges. Source of funds will be required and should be sent at the same time as the capital repayment to avoid delay in the application of funds.
