How to compare Santander mortgage deals

Whether you’re an existing customer or are considering a mortgage with them, it’s important to compare all Santander mortgage deals to see which one best suits your needs.

It's equally as important to compare mortgages in Santander's range with those available from other lenders. Even if you bank with them or already hold a mortgage with them, it won't guarantee you their best rate, or even that they'll approve your application.

The most efficient way to compare Santander mortgages with other deals on the market is utilising an experienced mortgage broker - such as our award winning online mortgage broker partners at Mojo mortgages.  

Santander mortgage reviews

Another good gauge of whether to choose a lender or not is to look at their reputation. Checking out feedback from their existing mortgage customers on sites like Trustpilot or Which can give you a good feel for their performance. 

They currently have a Which review score of 71%.

Santander Mortgages FAQs

How long does Santander mortgage approval take?

Mortgage lenders don’t generally like to quote mortgage approval times, as they can vary quite a lot depending on the type of mortgage you take, the property you’re buying and your personal circumstances.

The average length of time for mortgage approval is broadly around two to eight weeks, but this will vary by lender.

Can I overpay on a Santander mortgage?

The standard amount that Santander allow you to overpay on your mortgage without penalty, is 10% of the remaining mortgage balance.

Does Santander offer self-employed mortgages?

Santander does offer self-employed mortgage options, however, like many lenders, they have fairly strict criteria compared to for employed individuals. You'll need to have been self-employed for a minimum of 2 years and only net profits will be considered for sole traders (salary and dividends for Limited company directors).

How long is a Santander mortgage offer valid?

Santander mortgage offers are valid for 180 days for both new-build and standard properties.

Can I get a Santander mortgage with bad credit?

Santander will look at some bad credit applications, and will even consider fairly recently registered CCJs (County Court Judgement) of 3-6 months, depending on the amount and circumstances. They will also consider satisfied DMPs (Debt Management Plan).

However, those with an IVA (Individual Voluntary Agreement) or more serious credit issues will likely need to look at a specialist mortgage lender.
