Submitting porting applications

The majority of our residential mortgage products are normally portable, unless specifically stated otherwise. This means that the benefits of your client’s existing mortgage (up to the outstanding balance of their current mortgage) can be transferred to their new home, subject to our lending criteria at the time of any move. For porting applications, any early repayment charges will not be charged but the existing interest rate will not apply to any additional funds your client borrows unless it is our Standard variable rate.

To submit a porting application:

1. Download and complete the Agreement in principle for additional borrowing form and email it to This form provides us with:

  • The authority to speak to you on your client’s behalf
  • The information to generate a Mortgage Illustration for your client
  • Your client's consent to run an Agreement in principle

You should have a response to the Agreement in principle within 48 hours.

2. Once your client’s enquiry has been agreed, please download and complete the Additional Borrowing application form and email it to us at together with all information requested at the Agreement in principle stage.
