Change your Direct Debit


It’s easy to make a change to your mortgage Direct Debit. 
Any changes made within seven days of your current payment date won’t start until the next month.

  • To change your Direct Debit payment date, you can complete our online form. We'll then send a letter to confirm your new payment date once we’ve updated it.

    Here are some things to think about before you change your payment date:

    • You can only choose a date between 01 and 28 of the month
      Your payment date needs to be the same each month.
    • The best day of the month to make your monthly payment is 01
      This is when we charge the smallest amount of interest for the month. For most accounts, we work out the interest daily.
    • If you make a change within seven days of your current payment date
      It won’t start until the next month.
    • You might make two payments in a short space of time
      For example, if your current payment date is at the end of one month and you change it to the start of the next.
    • Sometimes, changing your payment date might make your payment amount go up or down
      We’ll tell you if this is the case. Usually, any changes are relatively small.

Changes to the amount you pay

Your Direct Debit will automatically change if your mortgage payment changes. For example, when a change in interest rate affects the payment amount.

If you set up a regular overpayment, we’ll update your existing Direct Debit to the new higher amount.

If you make a one-off overpayment, you might be able to reduce your monthly Direct Debit payments.

If there are any changes, we’ll always get in touch – you don’t need to do anything.

 


  

Think you might need to miss a payment?

Please call us on 0345 603 1637 so we can help and discuss your options. We’re available Monday to Friday 8am - 8pm and Saturday 9am - 4pm. We’re closed on Sundays and bank holidays.

If your Direct Debit has failed or you think it will
We’ll try to take your payment again 14 calendar days after the first Direct Debit has failed. For example, if your Direct Debit was due on 01 of the month, the second attempt will be made on 15 of the month. If your Direct Debit payment is on a bank holiday, we’ll take it the next working day.

If the second Direct Debit attempt is made on the following month, this could impact your credit file.
If you’ve made or want to make a payment to avoid the second attempt, please call us on 0345 603 1637.

Already missed a payment?
If your Direct Debit has failed both attempts, please call us on 0808 145 0399, so we can discuss your options. We’re available Monday to Friday 8am - 8pm and Saturday 8am - 5pm. We’re closed on Sundays and bank holidays.
