  • Mortgages

    Help to Buy

    We support the government-backed Forces Help to Buy scheme, which lets servicemen and servicewomen borrow up to 50% of their salary to use as a deposit to buy a home.

    Permission to let

    If you’ve got a mortgage with us and you’re moving barracks or being deployed, let us know. In most cases, we’ll allow you to rent your property for up to 2 years without changing to a Buy to Let mortgage. 

    No UK address?

    Usually, when someone takes out a mortgage with us, we require 2 years’ proof of address. However, we know that Armed Forces personnel are required to move frequently, so we’ll let you use your British Forces Post Office address.
