Meeting your mortgage needs
Moving homeWe know that moving house can be stressful, so we aim to make the mortgage process as easy and efficient as possible for you.
As soon as you have found the home you love, speak to your account manager, who will work with you to identify the mortgage that suits your needs and that is affordable. They will keep you updated at each stage of the process, letting you know what is required, if any further information is needed, and what happens next in a timely manner.
RemortgagingIf you are looking to remortgage, Handelsbanken has a range of mortgage solutions to meet your needs, and your account manager can help you through the whole process. Because we make decisions in the branch, we know the local market and appoint local conveyancers and legal advisors, remortgaging with Handelsbanken can be swift and simple.
Additional secured borrowing and lendingIf you are looking to borrow more, perhaps to improve your home or for a special purchase, your account manager will help you to identify your options, and take you through from start to finish. Because decisions are taken within the branch, not centrally, and are based on an understanding of your individual circumstances, you can be confident you will receive a personal service that is based on your needs and situation.

*The Handelsbanken Standard Variable Rate and Handelsbanken Base Rate are based on the bank’s true cost of funding, rather than tracking the Bank of England Base Rate.
