Offset Plus for Borrowers

The more savings your family and friends link to your mortgage, the more you can reduce the interest payable on your loan.


Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage.

Key features

  • Link up to 3 savings accounts to your offset mortgage (up to 2 can be Offset Plus Savings Accounts)
  • Offset the combined balances against your mortgage balance
  • Choose to reduce your monthly payments or pay off your mortgage sooner
  • View your offset benefits on your annual statement
  • Family and friends have instant access to their savings

Some things to bear in mind

You benefit from having extra savings linked to your mortgage, but this won't increase the amount we'll lend to you. If your friend or relative withdraws their money and the savings decrease, do consider how you'll manage your mortgage payments. We'll let your relative or friend know if any changes in circumstances may affect their interests.
