Why choose a secured loan?

You might want to choose a secured loan instead of transferring to a new mortgage deal if:

It’s important to think carefully about whether borrowing money against your home is the best option for you.

How it works

You can arrange a loan alongside your main mortgage on a variable rate of interest. There won’t be any changes to your current mortgage deal.

Our current residential additional borrowing loan rate is our Standard Variable Rate (SVR) plus 1%.

Our Buy To Let (BTL) additional borrowing loan rate is our Buy To Let Variable Rate (BTL VR) plus 1%.

Additional borrowing can be taken on a repayment or interest only basis. Additional policy restrictions may apply.


Payment detailsNotesCharge
Additional borrowing administration feeThere’s an administration fee to pay with this product. You can pay this when you apply or add it to the loan. If you add it to the loan, you’ll pay interest on it at the same rate as the rest of your borrowing. We’ll pay the fee back to you if the loan doesn’t complete.£199
Funds Transfer Fee (CHAPS)If you want, your funds can be sent to your nominated bank account (via CHAPS) and be available on the same day your loan completes. The charge for this is £30, which you need to pay before the funds are transferred.£30

Representative example

A mortgage of £50,000 payable over 25 years on a variable rate of 5.34% for 25 years, would require 300 monthly payments of £300.95, plus one initial interest payment of £226.76.

The total amount payable would be £90,710.76 made up of the loan amount plus interest (£40,511.76) and an additional borrowing administration fee (£199).

The overall cost for comparison is 5.5% APRC representative.

Think carefully before securing other debts against your home. Don’t risk losing your home – keep up those mortgage repayments
