Clydesdale Bank changes Interest Only lending

Clydesdale Bank makes changes to its interest only lending policy, launches innovative Low Start Mortgage product and improves large loan products.

21st January 2013

Low Start Mortgage

On Monday 21st January 2013, we launched our new Low Start Mortgage, exclusive to the intermediary market.

This innovative product offers an initial interest-only fixed rate period of 3 years before the repayments automatically revert to our Standard Variable Rate on capital and interest for the remainder of the mortgage term. The products are available for both purchase and remortgage up to 80% LTV.

The mortgage will appeal to any of your clients who want to minimise their repayments in the first 3 years of their mortgage term whilst providing assurance that their mortgage will be repaid in full by the end and is based on a 3 year residential fixed rate, tiered across four LTV.

New Interest Only Products

In addition to the new Low Start product launch, we have reviewed our current range for interest only applications. As a result we have created a dedicated range for interest only. Our interest only mortgage products have a minimum loan size of £300,000 and are available for both purchase and remortgage.

Our other residential mortgage rates remain unchanged.

Large loans

On 21st January 2013 we will also introduce a range of dedicated large loan products available for both purchase and remortgage. In addition, these products can support part and part interest only and repayment mortgages, with up to £1,000,000 of large loan mortgages able to be on interest only basis, with the remainder on repayment.  The maximum loan size is £2,000,000. Large loan products will be used for any mortgage where the loan size is over £1,000,000.
