Payments & Fees
When it comes to making your monthly mortgage payments and the payment of any fees, we’ve provided all the information you might need below.
We’ll take payments by Direct Debit from the current account that you confirmed to us when applying for your mortgage. If you need your payments to be paid from a different bank account, please call us on 0344 892 0155 so that we can make the necessary arrangements to change these details.
To make life easier for you, we can complete a new Direct Debit instruction over the telephone, or you can download a 🗎 Direct Debit Mandate here if you prefer and return it to us in the post.
Your original Direct Debit payment date is set to the date of when your mortgage completed with us, to ensure there is enough time for us to set the Direct Debit up with your bank and collect your first payment. You may choose to change your payment date to any other date in the month from the 1st to the 28th, if you wish to change your payment date after your first payment has been collected please contact us and we can change this for you.
You can call us directly to make a payment using our automated service, or you can speak to one of our colleagues and they will process the payment for you.
Or you can access your online account and make a payment directly. The payment will be applied to your mortgage account immediately.

Please ensure you quote your mortgage account number as a reference when sending payments through your bank, if you do not quote your mortgage account number there could be a delay in processing your payment. Your mortgage account number can be found on any correspondence from us to you.
Standing orders can take around 2 working days to arrive, if your payment date is at the end of a month your payment may not be processed until the following month. This may lead to your account being in arrears which will impact your credit rating and could result in fees and additional interest charges, please choose an alternative payment method to avoid this situation.

Please note if you are making payments in addition to your monthly mortgage payment and your account is not in arrears, you may incur early repayment charges. Please refer to your terms and conditions, if you need help to understand your options please contact us.
Throughout the life of your mortgage we may need to charge you a fee if you need us to change anything with your mortgage, or you request an additional service from us. We have therefore listed all our fees in our Tariff of Mortgage Charges booklet which can be found here: 🗎 TARIFF OF MORTGAGE CHARGES.
