Mortgages

Amend your existing online application

If you’ve recently applied for your first direct mortgage online and wish to make any amendments to your application, you’re able to change the following online:

  • loan amount
  • mortgage term
  • mortgage type (i.e. change from offset to repayment only)
  • interest rate (e.g. change from fixed, tracker or standard variable)

In order to make amendments, you’ll need to:

1. Use our ‘Find a mortgage for you’ tool to find the mortgage you would now wish to change to – remembering to select ‘Amending an existing application’ in the ‘I am..’ field.

2. Once you’ve selected the mortgage, you’ll then need to click on ‘Full details’, followed by ‘How to Apply’.

3. Then simply follow the on-screen instructions.

Please Note: You'll need to complete a new mortgage application if you want to make any other amendments to your online mortgage application or if your application was submitted over five months ago. If you do not wish to amend your interest rate, but cannot find the interest rate you originally applied for, please call us on 03 456 100 103.

Important Notes

first direct Offset Mortgages are interest only mortgages. The monthly payments shown on the next screen will cover only the interest charged on your mortgage.

This payment does not cover an amount that you need to pay to a repayment strategy. You are responsible for making your own arrangements to repay your mortgage at the end of the mortgage term.

You must demonstrate that you have a suitable repayment strategy in place. You may choose to use an endowment policy or another investment or savings plan.

Borrow more money

If you're considering borrowing more money against your property for something special like home improvements, we could help. Please call us on 03 456 100 173.

Move home

If you're moving home, why not make the process simpler by moving your existing mortgage deal with you? Transferring your mortgage is known as "porting" - and you can top up any difference with an additional mortgage deal, though it's subject to status and first direct's lending criteria at the time of the request.

Just call our Mortgage team on 03 456 100 236 and they'd be happy to explain what's involved.

Of course you can find and compare our mortgages with our 'Find a mortgage for you tool'.

Make extra payments

A first direct mortgage gives you the flexibility to make overpayments on your mortgage – and with the Bank of England base rate still low, you might want to take advantage of the situation and pay off a little extra. You could reduce the amount of interest you pay, reduce your monthly payments, or even pay your mortgage off earlier – though Early Repayment Charges may apply depending on the interest rate you have chosen.

If you'd like to make an overpayment, just give us a call on 03 456 100 173 - and in the meantime, try our Overpayments calculator to work out how much you could save.
