Coronavirus: mortgage payment holiday

I'm worried I might miss a mortgage payment in the future

Before you apply for a payment holiday

Important information

Before you apply for a payment holiday you should ensure that you are fully aware of the impact on your mortgage.

  • Although on a payment holiday, interest will continue to accrue which means you’ll pay back more over the full term of the mortgage.
  • When your payment holiday ends, your monthly payments will increase. We will provide you an estimate of these prior to commencing the payment holiday.
  • The term of your mortgage will not change.
  • A payment holiday will not have any negative impact towards your credit rating.
  • By requesting a payment holiday you are acting on behalf of all parties named on the mortgage.

How to apply for a payment holiday

Complete the online form

Before applying please ensure you have read the Important information section above.

  • After your request has been submitted, you won't need to do anything else. Within 7 days we will email you to confirm when your payment holiday will take effect, and to give you an estimation of what your mortgage payment will increase to after the end of your holiday period. Please note that if you have a payment due in the next 7 days, we may not be able to amend this payment. We will confirm this after we’ve processed your request.
  • If you are able to make your next payment we recommend that you do so as normal but we understand that in some circumstances that might not be possible so, where a payment request fails, we will contact you to offer further support.

Our colleagues in contact centres are working incredibly hard in difficult circumstances. Please only call us if it’s absolutely essential, this will allow us to focus on those customers who need us most at this time.
