Take advantage of lower interest rates
Our 2 year tracker rate mortgage follows the Bank of England base rate. So the interest rate you pay can go up or down.
Features of a tracker mortgage
WHAT IS A TRACKER RATE MORTGAGE?
Tracker rate mortgages explained
A tracker mortgage is a variable rate mortgage that tracks the Bank of England base rate. On the upside, when the rate’s low, you benefit from lower mortgage repayments. But on the other hand your monthly payments will increase if the rate goes up.
Once your tracker rate period has ended, we will move you to our standard variable rate (SVR). If you’re an existing customer, before your initial offer period ends, we’ll get in touch with details about our current mortgage deals.

All of our mortgages are repayment, rather than interest-only. This means that you pay back the value of the loan (sometimes called capital), plus interest.
BENEFITS OF OUR TRACKER MORTGAGE
Our tracker rate mortgages offer great flexibility, so if your life changes your mortgage could too.
Have the flexibility to keep your options open
If the interest rates rise and our tracker rate mortgage no longer works for you, you can switch to a fixed rate mortgage at any time during your term, without paying an early repayment charge. If you apply to move to one of our fixed rate mortgages you may have to pay a product fee.
Make overpayments to pay off your mortgage faster
During the initial period (2 years) you can overpay by up to 20% of the outstanding balance each year with no early repayment charge.
When moving home, your mortgage can go with you
Just give us a call about moving your mortgage and we’ll walk you through what you need to know. Just a reminder, you may need to pay a property valuation fee, as well as other fees and charges.
Take a break with a payment holiday
If you’ve made 6 monthly payments in a row, you can apply to take a payment holiday for 1 month. You can take 2 payment holidays every 12 months, up to a total of 6 payment holidays over the lifetime of your mortgage. But remember, you'll still be charged interest during a payment holiday, so your monthly payments may go up.
You could borrow more
If you've made 6 monthly payments, one after the other, you can apply to borrow more. The minimum amount you can borrow is £5,000 and the rate of interest you’ll pay is our standard variable rate (SVR).
Please remember that if you borrow more, you'll have to pay back more, and fees and charges may also apply.
You don’t need to lift a finger to get Clubcard points. We’ll automatically give you 1 point for every £4 you pay on your monthly mortgage payments – including overpayments. It’s easy to keep track of your points too as they’ll show up on your Clubcard account within 6 weeks of each payment you make.
You won't collect points on any fees or charges paid separately from your monthly payment or on any overpayment you make to pay off your mortgage in full.

Secure a better remortgage rate
Everyone has their own reasons for wanting to remortgage. Your current deal could be about to end, you might be looking for a better rate or be worried that interest rates might go up. Maybe your situation has changed and you want a different type of mortgage or perhaps you want to increase your mortgage to make home improvements.
We offer competitive rates on remortgage deals, so there’s nothing to stop you getting a quote and seeing how much you can borrow. If you’re coming to the end of your deal we can arrange for your home to be revalued and pay for your first standard valuation fee.
You could save by switching
When you remortgage with us, we’ll also pick up the tab for your standard legal fees. Let us know the costs and our approved solicitors, Countrywide Property Lawyers, will take care of it all.
You’ll still have to budget for any additional surveys, legal work and other non-standard costs.
COMING TO THE END OF YOUR CURRENT MORTGAGE DEAL
Renew your existing mortgage
If you’re an existing customer, before your initial offer period ends, we’ll get in touch with details about our current mortgage deals. We’ll work it out based on how much you still owe on your mortgage, our current valuation of your home, and the number of years left on your existing mortgage. And because you’re already a customer, we’ve done all the checks we need to, meaning switching to a new deal should be quick and easy.
