Offset Mortgages

Whether you already have an Offset Mortgage or you'd like to know how they work, our handy guide can help

Important information - Please note we do not currently offer offset mortgages for Buy to Let.

What does offset mean?

Offset mortgages link your mortgage to your savings. 

When you take out an offset mortgage with us, we’ll set up a savings account for you with Yorkshire Building Society (YBS). You won't earn interest on your savings, but they will lower the amount of mortgage interest you pay. 

We'll set up your offset savings account with YBS. We'll be a trustee on the account, which means we hold the account for your benefit. Your savings account management, transactions and payments will be done directly with YBS.

You can choose to either:

Pay the mortgage off sooner

What are the benefits?

  • You can overpay, underpay or take payment holidays (interest continues to be charged during payment holidays).
  • You retain the option to switch between reduced current payments, reduced payments in future years, or paying off your mortgage sooner.
  • You can take your Offset mortgage deal with you if you move home.
  • Your mortgage can have up to three separate Offset Savings Accounts linked.

Combining your savings and mortgage

Your Offset Mortgage Account and your Offset Savings Account remain separate, so you'll always have instant access to your savings. However, they are linked because you only have to pay interest on the difference between the amount in your savings and the amount of your mortgage. This means that the more you save, the less interest you'll pay on your mortgage.
