Fixed rate mortgage
Making your mortgage repayments easier to manage
Our 2, 3 and 5 year fixed rate mortgages (sometimes called fixed term mortgages), give you the certainty of knowing that your repayments will stay the same for a set period of time. The rate of interest you pay is fixed for the agreed period, and so are your monthly repayments, whether interest rates go up or down.
Features of a fixed rate mortgage
WHAT IS A FIXED RATE MORTGAGE?
Fixed rate mortgages explained
A fixed rate mortgage means that your interest rate stays the same for a fixed period, for example, 3 years. This can make it easier to manage your budget because your monthly repayments will stay the same.
Once your fixed 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 all of the loan (sometimes called the capital), plus interest.
BENEFITS OF OUR FIXED MORTGAGE
Benefits of our fixed rate mortgage
Our range of fixed rate mortgages is flexible, so if your life changes your mortgage could too.
Budget more easily with fixed repayments
Our fixed rate mortgages help you budget more easily with the certainty of knowing your monthly repayments will stay the same for an agreed period, even if interest rates go up or down.
Pay off your mortgage early for more years of mortgage-free living
During the initial period (2, 3 or 5 years) you can overpay by up to 20% of the outstanding balance each year and there’s no early repayment charge.
Take your mortgage with you when you move home
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.
It will all be outlined in your Mortgage Illustration: a document that tells you how much your mortgage will cost, as well as some other important information about the key features of your mortgage.
Have 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 increase your borrowing
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).
We’re upfront and keep things simple. You’ll find full details of the changes you can make to your mortgage, and our charges, in your personalised Mortgage Illustration.
Just a reminder, you may need to pay a property valuation fee, as well as other fees and charges.
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 must be registered to Clubcard in order to benefit from Clubcard points.
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 stopping you from 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 pay your first standard valuation fee and we'll also cover your standard legal fees.
COMING TO THE END OF YOUR MORTGAGE?
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.
