Application and valuation fees
Our application fee includes £175 to process the application and a valuation fee. The valuation fee is based on the greater of the purchase price or value of the property. The application fee is payable on application and is non-refundable.
For our Owner Occupier products we offer a free valuation for property values up to £500,000. For property values above £500,000 a discount of £330 applies.
For our Buy to Let products the valuation fee is always payable.
We will initially collect the relevant fee in line with our fee structure based on the estimated property value. If the actual valuation, after the property has been assessed by our appointed panel valuer, is below or more than the estimate then the following applies:
- If the property has been valued below the estimated value and falls into a new fee band, then we will refund the difference between the initial fee collected and the actual fee payable based on our application fee structure.
- If the property has been valued more than the estimated value and falls into a new fee band, then either a) if the difference between the fee bands is below £100 we will not charge a higher fee, or b) if the difference between the fee bands is equal to or more than £100 we will charge the higher application fee and the customer will be liable to pay the difference. Any additional fee amount will need to be paid before an offer is issued.
