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 1.59% p.a. (fixed) for 63 months reverting to 3.59% p.a. (variable) for the remaining term, you would make 63 monthly payments of £687.10 and 237 monthly payments of £823.61. The total payable would be £239,775.87, which includes interest of £68,483, valuation fees of £248 and a product fee of £995. The overall cost for comparison is 2.9% 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.

How to apply

You can apply for an HSBC mortgage online, by calling 0800 169 6333 or visiting a local branch.

What ID do you need when you apply?
