Our UK based call centre is staffed with our dedicated mortgage specialists
You can reach our mortgage specialists however you want, over the phone, online or in selected branches
0800: Calls to 0800 numbers are free from a UK landline, mobile costs may vary. Calls may be monitored or recorded for training and compliance purposes.
Approval in Principle: An AIP verifies how much you could borrow based on what you have told us, performs various criteria and credit reference agency checks, and gives a decision to lend based on its findings.
APR: Annual Percentage Rate of charge – this shows the overall cost of borrowing, taking into account the term, interest rate and other costs.
Arrangement fee: When you apply for your mortgage, lenders may charge you a fee for providing the loan. You can either pay this upon completion of your mortgage or add it to your loan. Our standard products include a £995 or a £1,495 arrangement fee, payable upon completion or added to the loan. Usually, legal and valuation fees will still apply but call us to confirm.
Fee assisted: Our fee assisted products have a £0 arrangement fee, a free standard valuation and if you’re remortgaging, free standard legal work via our nominated solicitors to help you keep the upfront costs down. You can upgrade to a full homebuyer survey for an additional fee – call us for more details.
Higher Lending Charge: A fee which may be charged if the amount borrowed is more than a given percentage of the value of the property. The lender will use the fee for an insurance policy to protect them against financial loss in the event of a borrower not meeting their mortgage payments. The fee is usually payable in full up front. You may be liable for any mortgage shortfall debt if after possession the sale proceeds are not enough to repay your outstanding debt. Choose a Post Office mortgage and the Higher Lending Charge is paid by us, the lender, on Loan to Value LTV mortgages above 75%. No Higher Lending Charge is payable on LTV mortgages up to 75%.

LTV: This stands for Loan to Value. It’s the amount of mortgage expressed as a percentage of the value of the property or purchase price, whichever is lower. For example, a mortgage of £80,000 on a purchase price of £100,000 would be 80% LTV. If the valuation of the property is lower than the price you've agreed, the LTV will be based on the valuation.
No Arrangement fee: No arrangement fee products are just that, there’s £0 to pay. These are ideal if you want a smaller mortgage, or don’t want to pay an arrangement fee or to add one to your mortgage.
Overall cost for comparison: The total cost of a loan, including interest charges and product fees, shown as a percentage rate. The calculation assumes that you keep the mortgage for the full term. APR is the industry standard calculation and allows you to directly compare mortgages from all lenders.
Standard legal fees: If your mortgage states that standard legal fees are paid by the lender, we’ll pay the fees for remortgages via our nominated solicitors. Terms and conditions apply, please see our General Lending.
Standard valuation: Also known as a lender's valuation, this is a basic assessment that’s carried out on a property to establish its condition and value. This is done so a lender can decide whether to lend on the property.
