There has also been re mortgage CCJs products giving access to tracker deals with some in the past offering cash back (Please call to see if this is still available), overpayments of up to 10 per cent a year and portability. Arrangement fees are market related and early repayment charges are in line with other lenders. Rates can hover above the Bank of England base rate by a couple of percentage points and will change all the time.
