Halifax is a British bank operating as a trading division of Bank of Scotland, itself a wholly owned subsidiary of Lloyds Banking Group. It is named after the town of Halifax, West Yorkshire, where it was founded as a building society in 1853. By 1913, it had developed into the UK’s largest building society and continued to maintain this position within the UK until 1997, when it demutualised.

Overall representative example
If you borrow £170,000 over a 25-year term at 1.28% p.a. (fixed) for 64 months reverting to 3.59% p.a. (variable) for the remaining term, you would make 64 monthly payments of £662.46 and 236 monthly payments of £816.99. The total payable would be £236,354.08, which includes interest of £65,207, valuation fees of £102 and a product fee of £995. The overall cost for comparison is 2.7% APRC representative.
Think carefully before securing other debts against your home. Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage.

What types of mortgage can I get with Halifax?

  • Fixed rate: With this mortgage type, your interest rate remains locked for a set amount of time, providing certainty about the size of your mortgage repayments.
  • Remortgages: You can switch your existing mortgage to Halifax via one of its remortgage products.
  • Offset: This mortgage type allows you to use a Halifax savings account to offset the total mortgage balance you pay interest on.
  • Tracker: With this type of mortgage, your interest rate will shift up and down in line with the Bank of England base rate.
  • Variable: These are mortgages with variable rates, which are set by Halifax and can change at any time. Halifax doesn’t offer variable rate mortgages as standalone products, but may switch you on to one when your fixed rate deal comes to an end.
  • Buy-to-let: This type of mortgage is needed if you want to borrow money to purchase an additional property and let it out.
  • Shared ownership: This mortgage type allows you to own a percentage of a property and pay rent on the remainder. When you can afford it, you can then apply to buy an additional percentage of the property.

How to apply

You can get a mortgage in principle online, by calling 0345 850 3705 or by visiting a local branch. Once you’ve had an offer accepted on a property, you can complete your mortgage application over the phone or in-branch.

What information do I need to provide?

You’ll need to provide proof of identity, your most recent payslips and details of your current financial commitments, such as any major outgoings or loan repayments.

Eligibility criteria

Applicants must be at least 18 years old and no older than 80 when the mortgage term is due to end.

All applications are subject to affordability assessments and credit checks. Halifax will not lend more than five times the annual income of the applicant(s). If you’re self-employed, you’ll need to be able to show at least one year’s worth of accounts, or two year’s worth if you’ve been self-employed for more than that time.
