Home Mover must-haves

Your current mortgage may be with us or another provider.  Either way we can assist in getting you that step closer to purchasing your happy place! Simply book an appointment with your local branch to find out about the full range of options available to you. 

Remember to bring the following along with you:

  • Proof of identity; a current passport or driving license
  • Proof of address; a utility bill or bank statement from within the last 3 months
  • Proof of income; if employed, latest P60 and last 3 months payslips, if self-employed, last 3 years business accounts (most recent accounts must not be older than 18 months) or last 3 years SA302’s and corresponding tax year overviews;
  • Bank details; last 3 months’ bank statements showing income and spending

Details of any existing financial commitments; up to date balance of credit or store cards, personal loans and hire purchases.

Our Home Mover Mortgage options

We offer two main types of mortgage: Fixed Rate and Variable Discount Rate.

We know that everyone’s circumstances are different, so we offer a range of products to suit individual needs.

  • A Fixed rate means your monthly payments remain the same, so you’ll know exactly how much you’re paying each month
  • A Variable discount rate means that your monthly payments could fluctuate, depending on the external market interest rates.

Each mortgage product covers a term of 2, 3 or 5 years.

After this period, your mortgage will automatically switch to Progressive’s Standard Variable Rate, which may mean that your monthly repayments increase. We’ll write to you before this happens, inviting you to talk to us about switching to another deal.

When you decide to use Progressive as your mortgage provider we want to make sure you’re always getting the product which best suits your needs.

Take Notes

Isn’t it funny how you always remember questions AFTER you’ve left the appointment? Why not have a think now and jot down the information that’s important to you such as: branch manager or mortgage advisor’s details, appointment times and any queries you may have.
