HSBC UK unveils new 40-year mortgage term

HSBC UK is helping to make homeownership more of a possibility for people looking to buy their first property, as it launches its longest ever mortgage term, the bank revealed today. For the first time, those taking out a mortgage with HSBC UK, have the option of arranging their borrowing over a 40-year term, which would provide lower monthly repayments.

The new 40-year terms will be an option on residential capital repayment and Buy To Let mortgages and is available to those who take out their mortgage with a broker as well as those who arrange their own mortgage with the bank directly. Eligibility can be found here.

Andrew Matson, Head of Mortgages at HSBC UK said: “We know that home ownership is a key life ambition for many people, but affordability can be an issue. We are delighted to introduce our first ever 40-year mortgage term to our customers. This move underscores our comittement to supporting aspiring homeowners in their journey onto the housing ladder.

“By extending the mortgage term we aim to help make mortgages more manageable with lower monthly repayments and homeownership a reality for our customers.”

The launch of the 40-year mortgage will be split across two dates. It will be available through mortgage brokers on Wednesday 30 August and customers making direct applications will be able to apply from Wednesday 13 September. This applies to all new residential applications on a capital repayment basis. Any additional borrowing, either standalone or in conjunction with a remortgage can now also be taken over 40-years.

For Buy to Let applications that are on both capital repayment and interest only the maximum term will extend to 40-years.
