6 reasons why switching is so easy!

What you will need

  1. You can reserve your new deal
    You can reserve a new deal up to 90 days before your current deal ends. If Early Charges apply, you can even delay switching until they no longer apply!

  2. You can switch quickly
    If you'd prefer, we can switch deal in a matter of days/hours. It commonly takes 8 weeks if you were to move to another lender.  

  3. We've already checked your eligibility
    Save yourself from the pain of reapplying all over again because we only offer deals that we know you are eligible for.   

  4. There's no credit check
    Switching your deal with us will not affect your credit rating. Remortgaging with another lender would.   

  5. There's no need for a house valuation
    Since you already have your mortgage with us. 

  6. There's no need for a solicitor
    You won't need a solicitor to help you switch deal. You will if you remortgage with another lender.  

 

What happens if I don't switch?

If you don't do anything then your mortgage will go onto either our Residential Standard Variable Rate (SVR) or Buy to Let Standard Variable Rate.
