Depending on your circumstances, we may ask you to provide further details so we can support you, but we'll let you know before we ask for this information.

What is a mortgage payment holiday?

A mortgage payment holiday is a period when your lender gives you permission to miss your regular mortgage payments.

It’s important to remember that interest will continue to be charged during a payment holiday. Therefore, when your payment holiday ends, your overall mortgage balance and monthly payments are likely to increase.

Who can apply for a mortgage payment holiday?

If you are experiencing financial difficulties due to the current coronavirus situation, the Government has announced that Lenders will offer mortgage payment holidays for up to three months.

If you are a landlord and your tenant is experiencing financial difficulties due to the current situation, you can apply for a payment holiday for up to three months to offer support to your tenant during this time.

What will happen to the interest on my mortgage during a payment holiday?

It’s important to remember that interest will continue to be charged during your payment holiday. At the end of your payment holiday we’ll recalculate your monthly payments – taking account of the interest added.

By spreading the cost of your payment holiday over the remaining term of your mortgage, the amount you will pay over the life of your loan will be more than it would have been had you not taken the payment holiday. The total amount you will repay to us could be higher than the amount stated in your Offer of Loan.

What do I need to do if I pay by Standing Order

If you pay by Standing Order, once we confirm the payment holiday has been processed you will need to cancel the Standing Order while your payment holiday is taking place.

We will write to you at the end of your payment holiday period but in advance of your next payment due date, to confirm your new balance and revised payment – taking account of the interest that has been added during your payment holiday. You should remember to reinstate your Standing Order with your new payment amount once the payment holiday ends.

I'd like to arrange a mortgage payment holiday but my mortgage payment is due in the next 10 days. What should I do?

If your payment is due in the next 10 days and you pay by Direct Debit we will collect this payment and commence the payment holiday from your next payment due.

What happens when my payment holiday has finished?

We will write to you towards the end of your payment holiday, at least two weeks before your next payment will be due. This letter will confirm your new balance and revised payment - taking account of interest that has been added during your payment holiday.

If you would like to understand the options available to you when your coronavirus payment holidays comes to an end, our separate online service will help you do this.

I’ve already applied for additional borrowing. What happens if I request a payment holiday too?

We may need to pause your request for additional borrowing if you have also applied for a payment holiday. We’ll be in touch if we need to do this.

Once your payment holiday has ended, you can apply for additional borrowing and your application will follow our usual process and criteria.

Will this affect my credit rating?

We will ensure that the payment holiday does not negatively impact your credit file.

When will my mortgage payment holiday start?

We will be in touch once we review your request to confirm when your mortgage payment holiday will start. For most people, this will be their next regular monthly payment, but if this is within 10 days of your request, your payment holiday may start the next month.

I understand that interest will continue to be charged during my payment holiday, but I don’t want to spread the cost of this over the term of my mortgage, are there any other options?

We will write to you at the end of your payment holiday period but in advance of your next payment due date. This letter will confirm your new balance and revised payment – taking account of the interest that has been added during your payment holiday. If you would like to discuss an alternative payment arrangement, the letter will explain how you can get in touch.

Already taken a three month payment holiday?

If you have already taken a three month payment holiday and would like to request a further extension please do not use this form as we will be unable to process your request. Instead our separate online service will help you understand your options.
