This depends on a number of factors, including:

Can I keep my Haven tracker mortgage rate?

It may be possible to keep your tracker mortgage if you’re moving home, but you’re likely to pay your existing rate plus an additional 1%.

Your Haven intermediary can advise if this is the best solution for you.

Warning: If you do not keep up your repayments you may lose your home. Warning: The cost of your monthly repayments may increase. Warning: You may have to pay charges if you pay off a fixed rate loan early. Warning: If you do not meet the repayments on your loan, your account will go into arrears. This may affect your credit rating, which may limit your ability to access credit in the future. Warning: The entire amount that you have borrowed will still be outstanding at the end of the interest-only period. The payment rates on this housing loan may be adjusted by the lender from time to time. (applies to variable rate loans only) Information provided and Interest rates quoted valid at 21/09/2021
