Online - Execution only service

 

Execution only means that you choose the mortgage yourself, and we do not give you advice or assist you in making your choice. You should only use the Execution only service if you are confident that you are able to choose the right mortgage for your circumstances and are happy to take responsibility for your decisions.

Unlike our Advice service, you will not benefit from the protection of us assessing the suitability of the mortgage for you and we will not be responsible for your selection. Because of this we will not offer you compensation if your choice turns out to be inappropriate. We may be unable to offer Execution only if we consider it is more appropriate to provide you with advice.

Considering your options whilst on our Standard Variable Rate mortgage? Other ways we can help you understand your options:

As it's been a while since you last reviewed your mortgage, your circumstances and your property value may have changed. Here are things you can consider to help find the right mortgage for you in your present situation.

 

1. You can ask us to instruct a new valuation on your property if you feel it has increased in value, for instance you may have had an extension built.

If the valuation does come back higher, you may have increased options available to you, as your Loan-to-Value ratio may have improved. This may allow you to change to a better deal, release some equity or a combination of the two.

 

2. Use our helpful mortgage overpayment calculator to see the impact on your mortage if you make either a one-off or regular payment.

It is an ideal time to do it whilst you are currently on Standard Variable Rate and before arranging a new deal.

 

3. If you are planning to move house we can support you through that journey via a Mortgage Advisor.

 

4. You can manage your mortgage online

Request a one-off or regular overpayment, change your payment date or request a new valuation.

Easy switching Benefits of renewing with Royal Bank of Scotland:

No credit score and legal fees

As you are an existing customer you do not have to go through a credit reference search. There are also no legal fees. If you re-mortgage to another lender you may need to go through this process.


No valuation required

When you are switching your existing mortgage to a new deal we do not require a new valuation. We will use the last valuation we have for your home.

If you think your house value has changed you may want to instruct a new valuation. If you would like to discuss arranging a new valuation you can do so by speaking with us on the telephone number below.
 

Increased Overpayment allowance

We will temporarily increase your annual overpayment allowance from 10% to 30% of your outstanding balance, for the 3.5 months preceding your mortgage deal end date, without you incurring an Early Repayment Charge. This could reduce your Loan to Value (LTV) and make you eligible for products in a lower LTV band, meaning you could secure a lower interest rate. To make an overpayment before renewing, please call us on the telephone number below.


We give you time to make up your mind

We will send your paperwork by e-mail (if you applied online) and will also always post this to you.

You will then have 14 days to decide if you want to accept. To do this you can simply return the paperwork in the post or if you applied by phone/in branch you can also call us.
