Frequently asked questions
If you've been affected by coronavirus (due to illness or self-isolation) and are worried about what this might mean for you financially, there are things we can do to help.
Please get in touch with us as soon as possible so we can discuss your individual circumstances and find ways in which we can support you. The sooner you contact us, the more we can do.
It's also worth remembering you can bank from home or on-the-go with internet banking and our mobile apps. If you have a Virgin Money Current Account you can move money, check your balance or even pay in a cheque with just a photo.
Most of our products have online services or an app to manage your account. If you have access to those services, then we’d encourage you to try them first before calling us in order to minimise the call volumes and potential waiting times for those most in need of the additional phone support.
Stores - If we need to close any of our stores temporarily, we’ll let you know on our website, social media or via email if we hold a valid email address for you.
Remember, you can manage your money using internet banking or our mobile apps. They’re great alternatives if you’re unable to visit a branch or speak to us on the phone.
If you are experiencing financial difficulties due to the current coronavirus situation, please complete this short form. We’ll take a look at your request and come back to you over the next week to confirm when your mortgage payment holiday will start. Our contact centres are extremely busy at the moment, so using this link to request a mortgage payment holiday is the fastest way for it to be put in place for you.
It’s important to remember that interest will continue to be charged during your payment holiday. At the end of the payment holiday period, we will work together to agree the best way for you to repay any additional interest incurred and to make up any payments that have been deferred. We’ll discuss the most appropriate solution for your circumstances which could include increasing payments over the remaining term.
We will ensure that the payment holiday does not negatively impact your credit file.
Following the updated Government guidance to “stay at home,” all surveyors that carry out home valuations for lenders have now stopped all physical valuations. Any customers who have a home valuation booked will be contacted by the valuer and updated on the current position.
Where possible we will use alternative ways to value a property, such as desktop surveys and Automated Valuation Models – a computer estimate based on previous sales prices and property value indices. However, this will not be available in all cases. Where we can’t value a property, we will put the case on-hold for up to 14 days and contact you to see if you want to continue or cancel the application.
If you would like to cancel an application because of concerns about the ability to purchase or remortgage a property at this time, any unused valuation or product fees already paid will be refunded.
If you are worried about not being able to make your next payment , but you are confident that you can make future payments, then you may be eligible for a payment holiday.
Before calling us please be aware that our contact centre is extremely busy at the moment, you may have to wait a little longer than usual, please be patient.
