Beyond this, it really depends on the kind of mortgage that you’re applying for. Buy-to-let mortgages will sometimes require you to forecast the revenue from the property’s rental.

Is there an Early Repayment Charge on Bath Building Society mortgages?

Early Repayment Charges, or ERCs, are often applied by mortgage lenders when a borrower wishes to repay their mortgage before the agreed timescale is up.

They can add a significant sum to your total cost of borrowing depending on how early you want to make the repayments and how much is left on your mortgage.

If early repayment is an avenue you think you might wish to take in future, speak to your Bath Building Society representative when arranging your mortgage and double check your terms and conditions before finalising your deal.
