Representative Example: The following is a representative example based on a mortgage of £201,384.00 over 25 years initially on a discount rate of 3.95% for three years followed by our standard variable rate of 5.24%. We would require an initial payment of £1,187.90 then 35 monthly payments of £1,057.50 and 264 payments of £1,190.80.

The total amount payable would be £355,635.60 made up of the loan amount, plus interest of £151,187.60 and the following costs a Scheme Fee (£1,499.00), an Application Fee (£115), Funds Transfer Fee (£25.00), Valuation fee (£505.00), Buildloan Arrangement Fee (£695.00), Legal Fees (£150.00), Mortgage Exit Administration fee (£75.00).

The overall cost for comparison is 5.2% APRC representative.
