Ways to help you manage your mortgage

We’re here to help

We understand what's happening in your life and the world around you can affect your finances. If you're worried you won't be able to make future mortgage payments or are already in arrears, we're here to help.

 

We understand this may feel stressful. Whatever your situation, we can help you put a plan in place.

 

If you’re currently up to date with your mortgage payments but looking for ways to reduce these in future, it’s important you explore all the options available to you.

What options are available?

There are a number of things you may be able to do to reduce your mortgage payments.

If none of these options feels right for you, we’d recommend you complete our Income and Expenditure form so we can provide personalised support.

Switch your rate

We can help you switch to a new HSBC mortgage rate if:

  • your current fixed rate mortgage is coming to an end within the next 3 months, or,
  • you're on the HSBC Variable Rate, HSBC Buy to Let Variable Rate or a tracker rate 

Depending on your circumstances and the interest rate you choose, switching rates may reduce your monthly payment.

How it works

Step 1 – Review your current interest rate. If you’re on a fixed interest rate and are looking to switch, there may be early repayment charges depending on how long your rate has left.

You can find these details on your mortgage statement or offer. You can also see them by logging on to online banking and looking under ‘My Accounts’.

There are no early repayment charges if you're on the HSBC Variable Rate, or HSBC Buy to Let Variable rate.

Next steps

You can either apply online if you don’t need advice, or call us to book an appointment so we can review your financial circumstances and help find the best rate for you.

See more information about switching rates.

Pay back your mortgage over a longer period of time

If you have a capital repayment loan (rather than interest only), you may be able to extend the term of your mortgage, which would make your monthly payment lower.

This option may be available depending on your circumstances. If you would like to discuss the possibility of extending your term, please call us.

Financial Difficulties

Dealing with financial difficulty

If you’re experiencing enduring financial difficulties and require support for any reason, please complete an Income and Expenditure form to help us understand your current financial position.

How it works

Answer a series of questions about your income and outgoings (such as salary and mortgage payments or rent) to help us assess your circumstances and find a solution to support you.

It should take about 10-15 minutes to complete and once completed, we’ll be in touch to provide personalised support.

To complete the form, you’ll need to:

  • provide basic information about yourself and your current employment status
  • detail your current monthly income and expenditure information. If you have a joint debt with another HSBC customer, you’ll also have to provide their income and details of any shared household bills
  • be as precise as you can so we get an accurate view of your current financial position

Next steps

If you’re a joint account holder, you’ll also need to complete the partner income section of the form. You only need to complete one form between you both – rather than one per named account holder.

Filling the form out won’t impact your credit file. However, depending on your circumstances, some of the solutions we offer may. If this is the case, we’ll let you know.

If you would like to call us to discuss this option, please contact us on 0800 085 2482.
