Applying for a mortgage when moving home
Royal Bank of Scotland mortgages are available to over 18s. Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage.
Stamp Duty holiday ends 30th June 2021
Make sure you allow enough time to complete your home purchase by 30th of June to take advantage of the Stamp Duty holiday.
Different factors can influence whether you can complete your mortgage by the deadline. Local Authorities may require additional time to complete personal searches. Local authority turn around times (England and Wales only).
Your steps to moving home with us
Find out how much your property is worth
An estate agent can give you an evaluation, or you can get a rough idea of value by looking up the selling price of similar properties in your area. Then you can use our calculators to see how much we might be able to lend you.
Check how much is left to pay on your mortgage
Look at the latest mortgage statement you received from your current mortgage provider to see how much is left to pay. Here’s some good news: move your mortgage to us and we'll pay your valuation and legal fees. (Exclusions apply.)
See if there are any outstanding charges
Your current provider might ask for an Early Repayment Charge (ERC). Check your paperwork to see if it applies.
Also, many lenders will charge an exit fee for closing your mortgage account with them, even if you are outside an introductory deal. These tend to be between £50 and £300.
If you haven't yet thought about how you will pay off your current mortgage early, read our mortgage repayment guide.
Compare our mortgage rates
Enter a few details into our mortgage rate calculator and we’ll show you all the RBS mortgages that could be right for you, based on what you've told us.
Thinking of borrowing more? No problem, it's easy to vary the amounts in the calculator.
Get an indicative decision
You’ll need to get an Agreement in Principle to see if we think we may be able to lend you the amount you require.
This isn’t a firm decision, but it’s the most accurate result we can give you without performing a full credit check. It won't take long and it won’t affect your credit score.
