New Build Mortgages

Although you don't need a new build mortgage to buy a new build home, these mortgages are specifically designed to help solve some of the problems many new build buyers face.

New build purchases can take time to complete, particularly if you reserve the property in advance. Because of this, many new build buyers with fixed rate mortgages miss out on several months of the fixed rate period.

That's why our new build mortgages have an extended end date, which means you may have up to three months extra on your fixed rate period.

You can choose from applying online¹ (unless stated below), in branch or over the phone, and you can even use our mortgage calculator and get a decision in principle today.

Our New Build definition is a property built in the last 2 years awaiting first occupation.

Representative Example

A mortgage of £188,000.00 payable over 25 years initially on a fixed rate for 2 years at 3.09% and then on our current Standard Variable Rate of 5.69% (variable) for the remaining 23 years would require 24 monthly payments of £899.60 and 276 monthly payments of £1,154.64.

The total amount payable would be £340,505.81 made up of the loan amount plus interest of £152,271.81 and application fee £0, product fee £199, valuation fee £0.

The overall cost for comparison is 5.3% APRC representative.
