Tariff of mortgage fees

Below is a summary of fees that you may be required to pay in relation to your mortgages.

When looking at the fees that other firms charge, you may notice some that don’t appear in our tariff. This simply means we don’t charge you these fees.

Further information about how we deal with charges and costs can be found in the Mortgage Conditions & Explanations brochure we send with a mortgage offer.
