Early Repayment Charges

Following the fixed rate or tracker period, the loan will revert to Virgin Money’s Standard Variable Rate (SVR), (currently 4.79%) for the life of the loan. On Everyday products, the Early Repayment Charge will apply to the outstanding secured loan balance at the time of redemption. Any overpayments in excess of the 10% annual allowance will also be subject to the Early Repayment Charge.

Fee Saver Option

The Fee Saver Option is ideal for customers looking to keep their fee costs as low as possible. This option is available across most of the range of mortgage products, enabling customers to choose between lower rates on a range of Product Fees, or paying a slightly higher rate without a Product Fee. Where fees are added to the loan they will incur interest for the term of the loan.

Applications

Products are available through registered mortgage intermediaries, via the UK based call centre on 0800 0285 277, at mortgages.virginmoney.com, or through the nationwide network of stores. Phone lines are open from 8am to 8pm Monday to Friday, 9am to 3pm Saturday, and 10am to 3pm on Sunday.
