4 General terms and conditions
Use of Loan Proceeds
1.1 You confirm that you will use the loan exclusively for the purposes specified in the Specific Terms and Conditions.
Payment
2.1 You will repay the loan on the dates, and in the manner set out in the Specific Terms and Conditions. If the full amount of the loan is not borrowed the amounts of the instalments detailed will reduce accordingly.
2 .2 When interest is charged at a variable rate, you may at any time after giving at least 5 business days notice to the Bank repay the whole or part of the loan early. Unless the whole loan is repaid, each early repayment must be of at least £2000. You cannot redraw any amount you have paid off. Where part of the loan is repaid early, the Bank will decide how to apply the early repayment, either by (of reducing subsequent repayments proportionately or (b) applying the early repayment to the then latest scheduled repayment instalments so as to reduce the term of the loan.
When interest is charged at a fixed rate, you may at any time after giving at least 5 business days notice to the Bank repay the whole or part of the loan early together with any amount that may be payable pursuant to Clause 2.3 below. Unless the whole loan is repaid, each early repayment must be of at least £5000. You cannot redraw any amount you have paid off. Where part of the loan is repaid early, the Bank will decide how to apply the early repayment, either by (a) reducing subsequent repayments proportionately or (b) applying the early repayment to the then latest scheduled repayment instalments so as to reduce the term of the loan.
2.3 The fixed rate of interest will protect you against the risk of an increase in interest rates during the time the fixed rate applies. The Bank, however, also needs to be, protected if you repay the loan early or for any reason you do not borrow the loan in full within the period or, as the case may be, on the date agreed, and owing to a fall in interest rates the Bank is not able to re-lend at the same interest rate as for the loan.
You, therefore, agree that, if interest on the loan is to be payable at a fixed rate of interest during any part of its term and (i) for any reason you do not borrow the loan in full within the period or, as the case may be, on the date agreed, or (ii) on any day during any fixed rate period you repay the loan early in whole or in part or are required (pursuant to the terms of this agreement to repay the loan early(the date referred to in (i) or, as the case may be, (ii) above being hereinafter referred to as the “Break Date”) you will pay to the Bank on the Break Date the Break Cast and, if the fixed rate of interest is or was provided by the Bank’s Treasury/Financial Markets division, you will also pay to the Bank an administration fee of £250. If this agreement is a Regulated Mortgage Contract, the maximum amount of Break Cost you will pay will not exceed the amount borrowed under this agreement
For the purposes of this agreement, the “Break Cost” is the amount by which:
(a) the gross interest which the Bank would have been entitled to receive on the amount not borrowed or, as the case may be, on the amount repaid early (had the loan been drawn in full and repaid in accordance with the originally agreed repayment structure) for the period from the Break Date to the last day of the fixed rate period less any amount payable in respect of the interest margin chargeable by the Bank, exceeds:
(b) the interest which the Bank would be able to obtain by placing an amount equal to the amount not borrowed or, as the case may be, the amount repaid early on deposit with a leading bank in the London Interbank market for the period from the Break Date to the last day of the fixed rate period and with the same repayment structure as agreed for the loan.
The Bank will certify (such certificate to be conclusive in the absence of fraud or manifest error) to you the Break Cost.
No Break Cost will be payable by you if you have entered into an option with the Bank and have paid the Option fee set out in the Fees and costs of the Specific Terms and Conditions and for any reason you do not borrow the loan in full within the period or, as the case may be, on the date agreed.
2.4 If the repayment details set out in the Specific Terms and Conditions make specific reference to this Clause:
(a) the Bank may (but is under no obligation) at any time after giving you at least 30 days’ written notice vary the repayment instalment amount to reflect any change in the rate of interest applicable to the loan, and
b) the Bank may, if changes in the rate of interest applicable to the loan are not taken into account by variations in the repayment instalment amount or if for any reason any amount remains owing to the Bank on the anticipated final repayment date, require you to continue the repayment instalments as set out in the Specific Terms and Conditions until such time as all amounts owing under and in connection with this agreement have been repaid in full.
2.5 Where the amount of the loan specified in Section 2 of the Specific Terms and Conditions does not exceed £25,000:
(a) the requirement to give at least 5 business days, notice to the Bank to make early repayment of all or any part of the loan and the minimum amount in respect thereof of £2,000 which applies when interest is charged at a variable rate, and the minimum amount of £5,000 in respect of early repayment of all or any part of the loan which applies when interest is charged at a fixed rate, each as set out in Clause 2.2 above, shall not apply and
(b) no administration fee or Break Cost as referred to in Clause 2.3 above will be payable.
2.6 Without prejudice to the Bank’s rights expressed in Clause 6.1 of the General Terms and Conditions, if you fail to pay an instalment in full and on time, and any part of that amount has not been paid by the time the Bank calculates your next instalment amount, the Bank may (at its discretion):
(a) increase the amount of that next instalment and each of your remaining regular instalments proportionally to ensure that the full balance of the loan is repaid within the agreed term,
(b) extend the term of the loan; or
(c) increase the amount of your final instalment
2.7 The Bank will apply any payments it receives from you against any interest before any other amounts on your account, including the outstanding principal of the loan. This will not apply to payments made specifically for fees and/or charges or where the Bank collects the interest and principal that make up your repayment from separate accounts.
2.8 All payments to be made by you shall be calculated and be made without (and free and clear of any deduction for) set-off or counterclaim.
Increased Costs and Changes In Circumstances
3.1 In running its business the Bank and any holding company of the Bank each has to comply with certain regulations and requirements laid down by regulatory and other official organisations or bodies as well as the law generally. The rate of interest quoted in the Specific Terms and Conditions has been set in the light of how this affects the cost (to the Bank and any such holding company) of the Bank funding, agreeing to make or of making the loan available at the time the Bank signed this agreement. If, as a result of any new laws, regulations or requirements or any changes in existing ones, such cost is increased the Bank may increase the rate of interest charged on the loan to compensate for that extra cost. The Bank will advise you in writing within 30 days of such increase taking effect.
3.2 If the rate of interest specified in the specific terms and conditions is stated as including regulatory costs, it includes the cost to the Bank at the time the Bank signed this agreement in funding, agreeing to make and making the loan available that results from complying with the liquidity, monetary control, prudential requirements and supervisory charge requirements of the Bank of England, the Financial Services Authority and any other regulatory authority. Regulatory costs may vary from time to time and any such variation may result in the Bank changing the rate of interest payable on the loan. The Bank will determine the regulatory costs on each date interest on the loan is due to be paid and, if in the Bank’s opinion there is then a material difference (either up or down) in regulatory costs it will advise you in writing within 30 days of any change of the new rate of interest then to apply to the loan.
3.3 The Base Rate may change from time to time. If so, the Bank will tell you about the change by putting notices in a selection of national newspapers, and its branches within three business days of the change. The Bank will also update its website and interest rate helpline within three business days of a Base Rate change taking effect.
3.4 (a) The Bank can change any term of this agreement at any time:
(i) if the change is to your advantage,
(ii) to reflect changes in law, codes of practice which apply to the Bank or the way the Bank is regulated; or
(iii) to reflect any changes the Bank makes to its systems or processes.
(b) If Clause 3.4(a) above permits the Bank to make any change, the Bank will left you personally at least 30 days before the Bank makes a change to your disadvantage (other than a change to the Base Rate, which will be made in accordance with Clause 3.3 above). If you close or change your account within 60 days of the Bank telling you about this change and repay the outstanding balance, the Bank will not charge you extra to do so. Where interest is charged at a fixed rate, any costs or losses to the Bank arising under Clause 2-3 above may be payable. However you will not be required to pay any early repayment charges under Section 2.6 of the Specific Terms and Conditions.
(c) The Bank can make any other changes straight away by telling you personally or by putting notices in a selection of national newspapers, in its branches or on its website within the next 30 days.
(d) When the Bank tells you personally about a change it will do so by letter, e-mail, text, statement inserts or messages or in any other way which is sent to you individually.

PERIOD OF OFFER

This agreement shall come into effect only if the Bank receives from you and finds in order a signed copy of this agreement on or before 8th January 2012 (or such later date as the Bank may agree).

GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

Use of Loan Proceeds

 

  1.1 Unless the loan is only for working capital or general business purposes, each amount borrowed shall be held in trust for the Bank until used for the purpose stated in the SPECIFIC TERMS AND CONDITIONS.

Repayment

 

  2.1 You will repay the loan on the dates and in the manner set out in the REPAYMENT section of the SPECIFIC TERMS AND CONDITIONS.

If you fail to make any repayment in full and by the time the Bank calculates the next repayment instalment amount, the Bank may (at its discretion and without prejudice to the Bank’s rights expressed in clause 6.1 below):

 

  (a) increase the amount of that next instalment and each of your remaining regular instalments proportionately to ensure that the full balance of the loan is repaid within the agreed term of the loan;

 

  (b) extend the term of the loan; or

 

  (c) increase the amount of the final repayment instalment.

The Bank will apply any payments it receives from you against any interest before any other amounts on your account, including the outstanding principal balance of the loan. This will not apply to payments made specifically for fees and/or charges or where the Bank collects the interest and principal that make up your repayment from separate accounts.

 

  2.2 You may at any time after giving at least 5 business days’ notice to the Bank make early repayment of all or any part of the loan together (in either case) with interest accrued to the date of payment. Each early repayment of part of the loan must be of at least £5,000 (excluding accrued interest). If the loan is to be repaid in more than one amount, the Bank will decide how to apply the early repayment, either (a) by reducing subsequent repayments proportionately or (b) by applying the early repayment to the then latest scheduled repayment instalments so as to reduce the term of the loan. No amount repaid early may be borrowed again.

Increased Costs and Changes in Circumstances

 

  3.1 In running its business the Bank and any holding company of the Bank each has to comply with certain regulations and requirements laid down by regulatory and other official organisations or bodies as well as the law generally. The rate of interest quoted in the SPECIFIC TERMS AND CONDITIONS has been set in the light of how this affects the cost (to the Bank and any such holding company) of the Bank funding, agreeing to make and of making the loan available at the time the Bank signed this agreement. If, as a result of any new laws, regulations or requirements or any changes in existing ones or in the interpretation or application of any existing ones, such cost is increased, the Bank may increase the rate of interest charged on the loan to compensate for that extra cost. The Bank will advise you in writing within 30 days of such increase taking effect.

 

3.2   (a)   

If the currency in which the loan is denominated is due to be or has been converted into the euro or into any other currency as a result of a change in law, the Bank can amend any term of this agreement. Such an amendment will be only to the extent the Bank thinks necessary to comply with any generally accepted conventions and market practice in the London interbank market and otherwise to reflect the change in currency and to put the Bank in the same position, so far as possible, that it would have been in if no change in currency had occurred.

 

  (b) The Bank can also change any term of this agreement at any time (even if an Event of Default has not occurred):

 

  (i) to reflect the introduction of or any other change in law or in any code of practice which applies to the Bank or the way the Bank is regulated;

 

  (ii) to reflect any changes the Bank makes to its systems or processes; or

 

  (iii) if the change is to your advantage.

 

  (c) If the Bank makes a change pursuant to this clause 3.2 which is to your disadvantage, the Bank will give you 30 days’ prior notice. This notice may be by letter, email, text, statement inserts or messages or in any other way which is sent to you. The Bank can make any other changes straight away by telling you personally or by putting notices in a selection of national newspapers, in its branches or on its website within the next 30 days.

For the avoidance of doubt any change in Base Rate is not subject to 30 days’ notice. Base Rate may be changed at any time as specified in the definition of Base Rate set out in clause 8.11 below.

 

  (d) At any time within 60 days of receipt of the Bank’s 30 days’ notice (as referred to in paragraph (c) above) you may make early repayment of all (but not part) of the loan. Such repayment shall be in accordance with clause 2 above.
