If you have a fixed rate mortgage, your rate and monthly payments will not change until your deal period comes to an end. We will write to you when your deal period is coming to an end to let you know what your new payment and interest rate will be.

Following the 0.25% Bank of England Base Rate increase, we have reviewed our mortgage rates and from 1st September 2018 the Society’s Standard Variable Rate (SVR) will increase from 4.75% to 5.00%. Borrowers on a variable rate mortgage will see their interest rate increase by 0.25% and payments will be adjusted accordingly. We will write to you to let you know your new monthly payment.


We are currently reviewing the pricing of all of our variable rate products. If we make changes to our variable rates we will communicate these to Members.
