If you currently have a fixed-rate or Tracker mortgage (not all), then Early Repayment (Redemption) Charges may be payable for paying off this mortgage early. This usually ranges between 1-5% of the total loan amount and will depend on the length of the fixed period, i.e. the longer the fixed period remaining, the higher the early repayment charges payable. Exact details of this can be found on your mortgage offer and/or annual mortgage statement.
When the fixed period ends, there are usually no Early Redemption Charges payable. A Mortgage Exit Fee (or Redemption Fee) may be payable to close the mortgage account. Your lender may also charge a nominal fee to cover the administration costs associated with closing the mortgage account down.
If you are on the lender’s standard variable rate mortgage, then no Early Repayment Charges are payable.
