Legal Fees (England and Wales direct mortgages only i.e. not those arranged through an intermediary)
You do not have to use the Society's solicitors but for re-mortgages using them and provided the re-mortgage is for £50,000 or over, the Society will pay all the standard legal fees.

Additional fees may be payable by you for re-mortgages exceeding £200,000 and in certain other circumstances - please ask us for details.
Valuation Fee
A payment of up to £300 will be made when your mortgage funds are released to assist with the cost of the basic valuation fee.

For certain re-mortgage applications the Society will not send a valuer to your home to value the property. Rather we will rely on a valuation provided by an electronic database which compares similar properties to your own. Unless you require an inspection of your home then please select the valuation option 'Database Valuation (re-mortgage only)' when completing your application form.

We will let you know if we decide to rely upon this database valuation.  In this situation you will not be required to pay a valuation fee but you will not receive a copy of the valuation. If the product you have chosen includes a valuation refund due at the start of the mortgage it will not be paid if an inspection is not undertaken.  If it is not possible to obtain a satisfactory valuation from this source, or your application does not meet the criteria for a database valuation, we will need to instruct a valuer to inspect your home at your cost although this fee may be refunded (in full or in part) if your mortgage has this incentive.

Any Key Facts Illustration (KFI) provided before you apply for the mortgage will include the valuation fee due as if an inspection is to be made.  A revised KFI will be provided to you if we rely upon the database valuation when the mortgage offer is issued, and will not show the valuation fee/refund as being due.
Product information is also available in Braille, Large Print and Audio format.
This offer may be withdrawn or varied at any time and without notice. The information above is provided as a guideline only. A product pack providing further details of this mortgage is available on request. This information can be sent by postal service only.
