    Execution-Only

    Reliance Bank’s Mortgage Rate Table is based on our level of service which is execution-only. Reliance Bank do not provide advice on mortgages.

    • Interest is calculated daily
    • Interest is charged in arrears
    • You don’t have to bank with Reliance Bank to apply

    APRCs

    The APRC (Annual Percentage Rate of Charge) is the total cost of the credit to the consumer, expressed as an annual percentage.
    The APRC (previously known as APR until recent regulatory changes) is the official cost for comparison. It's calculated using the average cost per year, including fees associated with the mortgage. However, it assumes you keep the mortgage for the entire term rather than just the initial deal period.

    Summary

    Shared Ownership

    Reliance Bank are proud to support Shared Ownership mortgages. These mortgages help people who would normally be unable to get on the housing ladder, to buy a share of their new home through Reliance Bank with the support of a housing association.

    Shared Ownership Case Study

    Hannah and Joseph were recently able to buy their first home in North London on a Shared Ownership mortgage provided by Reliance Bank, with the support of a local housing association.

    Hannah says "We could not live where we are in North London without the Shared Ownership mortgage that Reliance Bank provided. We are so thankful to Reliance Bank and the housing association for enabling our family to have a home as we continue in work and ministry”

    This is just one example of how Reliance Bank are looking to help people own their own home. 

    Mortgages for people with long term disabilities

    Reliance Bank is able to support those individuals who have long term disabilities to buy a place they can call "home".

    The impact is substantial, not just for the individual who has the disability, but for the individual's wider support network and family.

    These mortgages demonstrate Reliance Bank's commitment to providing a positive social impact to those individuals who may have been unable to own their home.
