Our Capped Base Rate Loan provides certainty of a known maximum monthly payment, whilst benefiting from a variable rate. It is linked to the Bank of England Bank Rate so the interest rate that you pay will change as the Bank Rate changes, but it will not go above the Capped Rate during the Capped Rate Period. Capped Base Rate loans are less dependent on market conditions than Base Rate Loans, giving you confidence that you will be able to meet your financial obligations.
There is always a possibility that the total interest rate payable will not rise above the Capped Rate during the Capped Rate Period, in which case you may have unnecessarily paid more interest than if you had chosen a Base Rate loan with no Capped Rate feature.
Any early payment made during the Capped Rate Period will incur a Break Cost. Break Costs are defined at the outset of your loan, giving you certainty around the costs involved.
An arrangement fee of up to 1.5%2 applies and is related to the amount you borrow.

1The “Capped Rate” applies for a Capped Rate Period of five (5) years, and this may be equal to or less than the full term of the loan. If the term of the loan is for longer than the Capped Rate Period, then from the end of the Capped Rate Period, the loan will no longer have the protection of the Capped Rate and will be subject to the full impact of any movement in the Bank Rate with no maximum interest rate protection.
2An arrangement fee will apply and is related to the amount you choose to borrow. These terms will be discussed with you before you take out the loan. To cover our administration costs for smaller facilities, there will be a minimum scale charge of between £100 and £250 resulting in the overall charge being more than 1.5%.
