Overdrafts over £15,000 have a set-up fee of 1.5% of the arranged overdraft limit, and a renewal fee of 1.5% of the limit will also be applied annually. For arranged overdrafts over £25,000, security may be required. Overdrafts are repayable on demand and you must be 18 or over to apply. All charges can be changed, but we’ll let you know before we do this.
