Representative Example:

A mortgage of £184,000.00 over 27 years initially on a discounted variable rate of 3.29% (equal to a 1.60% discount off our SVR) for 2 years and then our Standard Variable Rate of 4.89% for the remaining term, would require 24 monthly payments of £857.72 and 300 monthly payments of £1012.57.

The total amount payable would be £324,731.62 made up of the loan amount plus interest (£140,422.62) with a Application Fee of £199.00, Funds Transfer Fee of £25.00 and a Mortgage Exit Fee of £85.00.
