The actual rate payable will depend on your circumstances. Please ask us for a personalised illustration. A fee is chargeable only on completion, typically 2% of the loan amount depending on your circumstances (subject to a minimum of (£1,995 and maximum of (£2.995). For a mortgage of (£100,000 the fee would be (£2,000. Early repayment charges may apply and will vary depending on the mortgage. Adding existing debt to your mortgage will increase both the repayment term and the overall cost.
