This is a brief summary of the 3 different types of mortgages we offer

Fixed rateTracker rateLifetime Tracker
Best for:
People who want an exact idea of what they’re going to have to repay for the next few years.




You can usually fix your deal for 2, 3 or 5 years. During this fixed period your monthly payments will stay the same. After your fixed period you’ll move onto the Santander Follow-on Rate (variable). If you want to finish your deal earlier you may pay an early repayment charge.
Best for:
People who think interest rates will stay low over the next few years or want to make unlimited overpayments on their mortgage.



You can choose a mortgage with an initial rate period and during this period your rate tracks above the Bank of England base rate. With this type of mortgage your payments may vary. The initial rate period is usually 2 years and after that you move onto the Santander Follow-on Rate (variable).
Best for:
People who don’t want to ever look for a new mortgage deal again or want to make unlimited overpayments.



With a Lifetime Tracker mortgage your rate will track above the Bank of England base rate for the life of your mortgage term. With this type of mortgage your payments may vary.

Repayment mortgage

Your monthly payment covers both the amount you’ve borrowed and interest. So as long as you keep up your payments, your mortgage will be paid off at the end.

Interest only mortgage

Your monthly payment only pays off the interest. You’ll still need to repay the amount you borrowed at the end of your mortgage and will need a separate plan in place to do this (such as an investment or endowment). We may limit the amount allowed on interest only.

Combination

You can choose to pay part of your mortgage as repayment and the other part as interest only. 

Ways to apply

Before applying for a mortgage, you'll first need to get a decision in principle (DIP) from us online or by phone. A DIP tells you if we could lend you the amount that you need for your mortgage. It also won't affect your credit rating.
