HSBC Holdings PLC is a British global bank headquartered in London. It’s one of the biggest banks in the world, and the biggest in Europe.

HSBC offers a range of mortgage types and can advise you on a suitable plan over the phone, online or in-branch.

What types of mortgages can I get with HSBC?

  • Fixed rate Your interest remains fixed for a set amount of time, so you can be certain about the size of your monthly mortgage repayments.
  • Remortgages You can switch from your existing mortgage provider to HSBC via one of the lender’s remortgage products
  • Tracker Your interest rate shifts up and down alongside the Bank of England base rate.
  • Buy to let This mortgage allows you to borrow money to buy an additional property and let it out.
  • Shared ownership This mortgage allows you to buy a percentage of a property and pay rent on the remainder. You can then apply to buy additional percentages of the property as and when you can afford it.

Overall representative example
If you borrow £170,000 over a 25-year term at 1.75% p.a. (fixed) for 62 months reverting to 4.74% p.a. (variable) for the remaining term, you would make 62 monthly payments of £700.04 and 238 monthly payments of £912.95. The total payable would be £261,424.58, which includes interest of £90,685 and a product fee of £495. The overall cost for comparison is 3.6% 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.

Our customer satisfaction scores (“Customers say”) are based on a survey of 750 customers carried out in December 2019.

We show offers we can track - that's not every product on the market...yet. Unless we've said otherwise, products are in no particular order. The terms "best", "top", "cheap" (and variations of these) aren't ratings, though we always explain what's great about a product when we highlight it. This is subject to our terms of use. When you make major financial decisions, consider getting independent financial advice. Always consider your own circumstances when you compare products so you get what's right for you.
