Product Transfers

If our customer, your client, is approaching the end of their initial fixed or tracker rate mortgage with us, or if they have already moved on to their reversion rate, one of the options you may choose to discuss with them is a Product Transfer.

Before your client’s initial fixed or tracker rate ends, we will send them a letter with details on how to switch using our Product Transfer service.

There are some eligibility requirements we need to check before we can consider your client’s request. You will also want to discuss your client’s personal situation and provide advice on the best option for them.

Eligibility requirements
  • The client’s current fixed or tracker rate is due to expire soon, or they are already on a variable rate (reversion rate).
  • The client is not moving home or looking to increase their mortgage balance
  • The client is not seeking to add or remove a party
  • The client must have no current arrears balance, and no missed payments in the last 12 months.
What to expect from our Product Transfer process
  1. We will notify your client when it’s time - If your client is currently on a variable rate, or they are coming to the end of their initial fixed or tracker rate, they will receive a letter from us that will explain their next steps.
  2. Contacting your client – We will recommend clients get in touch with their broker early so they can receive help to find the best option for their circumstances. We will confirm that the advice process will include a check to confirm if they are eligible to switch using a Product Transfer. You may wish to also proactively contact your clients to discuss their options.
  3. Apply to Product Transfer – If you recommend that your client should opt for a Product Transfer, and they meet our eligibility requirements, please login to our origination portal and select the 'Product Switch' icon. You can then follow the portal steps using our handy 'How to Guide' – we also have our dedicated Product Transfer team available to answer your questions or support you and your client if the portal asks you to contact us. If your client decides to proceed with the Product Transfer, you complete this via the same portal.
