  • Remortgages. You can switch your existing mortgage to NatWest via one of its remortgage products.

  • Buy-to-let. This mortgage allows you to buy an additional property and let it out to tenants.

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.
