Key features of the fixed and tracker mortgage product range for new applications


--  Flexibility: 
    --  Overpayments (no minimum; maximum of GBP 500 per month on fixed and
        tracker mortgage deals). 
    --  Apply for a Further Advance, the additional borrowing facility. 
--  Valuation fee: 
    --  Varies based on purchase price of property and not product chosen. 
    --  Non-refundable for home buyers and home movers. 
    --  No standard valuation fees or standard legal fees for borrowers who
        are remortgaging. 
--  Free legal fees for house purchase cover the conveyancer's professional
    charges relating to the house purchase only when using one of our panel
    legal firms. The customer will be liable for some additional fees
    relating to the disbursements, e.g. Land Registry fees and local
    authority searches. Due to Northern Irish law, Nationwide is unable to
    offer free legal fees for house purchase in Northern Ireland.  
--  Maximum LTV: 
    --  Lending above 85% LTV is available on two, three, four and five-year
        fixed rate mortgages. 
    --  Lending above 90% LTV is available on three, four and five-year
        fixed rate mortgages. 
    --  95% LTV mortgages are available to: 
        --  Existing Nationwide mortgage borrowers switching at the end of
            their current deal or moving home. 
        --  Save to Buy customers. 
        --  NewBuy customers.
    --  90% LTV mortgages are available to: 
        --  Existing Nationwide mortgage borrowers switching at the end of
            their current deal or moving home. 
        --  First-time buyers and home movers.
    --  First-time buyers can access 95% LTV products through Save to Buy
        and NewBuy. 
    --  75% on new build flats and 85% on new build houses (90.01% to 95%
        LTV for approved NewBuy housing providers). 
--  Base Mortgage Rate 
    --  Any mortgage products reserved on or before 29 April 2009 will
        revert to the Base Mortgage Rate (BMR). If the borrower chooses to
        switch to a new Nationwide mortgage product, the new product will
        currently revert onto our Standard Mortgage Rate (SMR). 
    --  Both are variable rates which we may vary in accordance with our
        mortgage terms and conditions. However, the BMR is guaranteed to be
        no more than 2% above the Bank of England base rate, whilst the SMR
        has no upper limit or cap. If the borrower chooses to switch to a
        new product, it is not possible to switch back to the BMR at a later
        date. 
--  Standard Mortgage Rate 
    --  Mortgage products reserved on or after 30 April 2009 revert to the
        Standard Mortgage Rate (SMR).  
    --  The SMR is a variable rate which may vary in accordance with
        Nationwide's mortgage terms and conditions.  
--  All mortgages reserved on or before 3 March 2010 include the option to
    apply for a payment holiday and borrow-back facility. Any mortgages
    reserved after this date will no longer include these facilities. 
--  If the borrower is currently letting their property they will be unable
    to switch to a new mortgage deal and their mortgage will automatically
    revert to the Nationwide variable rate as stated in their mortgage
    offer. 
--  Early repayment charges for fixed rate and tracker mortgages
    Throughout the deal period, a percentage of the outstanding loan is
    payable as detailed below. Overpayments of up to GBP 500 per month are
    permitted without the need to pay an early repayment charge.
