|Payment holidays*||Following nine consecutive payments||Following nine consecutive payments|
|Underpayments*||–||Providing you have made overpayments|
|Borrow back*||–||Providing you have made overpayments (£500 minimum)|
*Flexible features must be applied for and are subject to the terms and conditions of your mortgage and Virgin Money’s prior agreement.
Make overpayments to save interest on your mortgage and repay years earlier with mortgages you’re okay to overpay.
Making overpayments is a great way of reducing the outstanding loan amount on your mortgage, which also means you’ll save on the amount of interest charged.
If you would like to pay a bit extra each month, or you would prefer to overpay with a lump sum, you can. Our everyday mortgages let you make overpayments of up to 10% of your outstanding balance per calendar year, with no Early Repayment Charge.
With our flexible mortgages you can make unlimited overpayments free of charge, as long as your mortgage is not paid off completely.
As overpayments reduce the amount of money you have borrowed on your mortgage, this could result in a saving of the amount of interest charged, which in turn, will help you to pay off your mortgage earlier.
Following receipt of an overpayment, your outstanding balance and the Interest charged will be recalculated the following day.
Use our overpayment calculator to work out how much you could save on your mortgage by paying it off quicker.
Enjoy the flexibility to take a break from your monthly payments with mortgages that let you take a breather*.
All our mortgages let you apply to take a one-month payment holiday once you have made nine full payments in a row. We just need to agree to any payment holidays before you take them.
The maximum payment holiday period is three months – you can apply for this after 27 consecutive full monthly payments.
It’s worth remembering your outstanding balance will be higher because you are taking a payment holiday and interest will still be charged on your mortgage during the break. Taking a payment holiday will also increase the outstanding balance upon which future loan interest charges are calculated.
With our flexible mortgages once you’ve overpaid, enjoy the flexibility to underpay and borrow back with mortgages that let you give and take*.
With our flexible mortgages, if you’ve made overpayments, you can apply to make a lower monthly payment or stop your monthly payment until the overpayment is used up.
You can also borrow back some or all of the overpayments you’ve made - the minimum amount that you can apply to borrow back at any one time is £500.
Any money you borrow back will be charged interest at the same rate as your mortgage.
If you want to underpay or borrow any money back, we’ll need to agree to it first.
Enjoy a flexible mortgage that moves home when you do.
Once you have a Virgin Money mortgage it’s really easy to take your mortgage with you when you move home – this is generally referred to as ‘porting’.
Depending on your mortgage, you may also be able to apply for additional borrowing at the same time, especially useful if you’re moving up the property ladder.
Flexible mortgages which allow you to switch if you change your mind.
Our ‘Freedom to fix’ range offers a standard tracker mortgage that follows the Bank of England Base Rate. But you can switch to a fixed rate mortgage at any time during the deal period, without incurring an Early Repayment Charge – you just need to pay the product fee on the mortgage you are switching to, if there is one.
A great option for those that want to benefit from a tracker whilst interest rates are low, but with the peace of mind knowing you can change in the future.
