Pay off your mortgage

You can completely pay off your mortgage, also known as a mortgage redemption, before the end of its term.

What to expect when paying off your mortgage

Direct Debits and Standing Orders

Please do not cancel your Direct Debit or Standing Order. We will cancel your mortgage Direct Debit after the account is closed. If you do pay by Standing Order, please remember to cancel this once your mortgage is paid off in full. Any overpayments will be refunded within ten working days.

Insurance

If you pay for Mortgage Payment Protection Insurance with your mortgage payments, we'll cancel this for you when you pay off your mortgage in full. You should also review any other policies you may have with your mortgage and then cancel them if you need to.

Payments

The figure quoted on your redemption statement is only valid for the date stated. If we receive your payment after this date you'll be charged additional interest. This could lead to a shortfall. The figure will also include any Direct Debits which have been taken within the last four working days or that are due to be taken in the next four working days.


How to pay off your mortgage early

If you’d like to pay off your mortgage before the terms ends, first check if you'll need to pay any Early Repayment Charges (ERCs). Learn more about ERCs

There may also be a mortgage exit administration fee. To find out more about fees and charges, please visit our tariff of charges - PDF 71KB (opens in a new window).

You’ll need to request a redemption statement – this will show how much you still owe on your mortgage, plus any ERC you need to pay.

Ways to pay

There are a number of ways to pay off your mortgage balance once you have your redemption statement.

Internal transfer

Nationwide current account customers can pay off their mortgage account via an internal transfer in the Internet Bank.

Payments from other banks and building societies can be done with a one-off faster payment using the following details:

Remember to:

  • write your mortgage account number on the back of the cheque, and
  • include a covering letter, letting us know that you want to repay the mortgage in full.
