Additional Borrowing

Borrowing more money on your mortgage could be a good way of raising some extra funds. And if you’ve had a mortgage with us for at least the last 6 months, you may be eligible to borrow up to 95% of the value of your home (75% for Buy To Let customers).

It’s another way that we’re helping people to find their good place. We’re here to help, so take a look below to see whether additional borrowing might be right for you.

Why might you consider additional borrowing?

We all have our own story and what comes next is down to you. But if your next chapter involves a larger expense, additional borrowing could give you the capital you need. It’s there for things like:

  • A new car
  • Making improvements around the home
  • The big day (yours or your loved ones')
  • Making your home more energy efficient

Can I borrow more money on my mortgage?

Additional borrowing is available on most of our remortgage products subject to criteria including affordability and conduct of your account. But you should consider whether other forms of borrowing are more suitable for you, as any money we lend through additional borrowing will be secured against your property and your overall mortgage balance will increase.

If you need any more help and information, our team are here to discuss options, answers and the time you need. And as always, we’ll never pressure you into making any decision.

You could lose your home if you don’t keep up your mortgage repayments.
