My partner and I were first time buyers looking for a fixed mortgage rate and HSBC were offering a great deal. We asked for information and help on how to apply for the mortgage and the lady we dealt with was very helpful giving us loads of information. Staff were friendly and advised us every step of the way. We secured the mortgage and HSBC were always there to answer our questions and when we finally moved into our house we got a lovely card from the lady who had helped us process our mortgage. They offered us exceptional and friendly service.

Absolutely useless, lost everything we sent then never replied

We applied to HSBC for a mortgage last October. We took the option of using the online method as we were told this would be easiest. Oh what a joke that was. We uploaded everything asked of us, then about a week later we received a letter asking us for the same documents. We contacted them and they told us to ignore it. Two weeks went past with no update, so we logged in to find a message telling us we needed to upload our documents. We called and this time were told that they'd sent a letter and we'd ignored it. We explained we'd been told to, but they said this was wrong, they needed us to send our documents as they'd been lost. We uploaded them again, then a week later we got a letter asking us to upload our documents. The same process happened again - ignore it. Fast forward two months with the same process happening over and over again. Eventually we were passed to an assessor, who asked for more documents. We sent these, waited some more then logged in again. To our horror, our application was marked 'expired'! We called again to be told it had taken too long and we needed to begin the whole process again! Meanwhile our vendors were getting extremely impatient. We were told this would be fast tracked, so we did everything again, were told it was sent to an advisor and the next time we logged it the entire application was marked cancelled. We never did hear from anyone! Serious, do not waste your time! They'll lose you your house.

Good, helpful just a little slow

The only negative part of the process were how slow HSBC were to do everything. The surveyor took ages, all the approval took ages, the whole process ended up taking 3months. However the mortgage itself was a good rate and every member of staff I came...

The only negative part of the process were how slow HSBC were to do everything. The surveyor took ages, all the approval took ages, the whole process ended up taking 3months. However the mortgage itself was a good rate and every member of staff I came across was lovely and full of good advice.

Great product and superb value from a great British bank ... despite the name of course

It was very straightforward to switch my mortgage to HSBC and their 10 year fix with no fees was a very good value way to provide certainty during very uncertain times.

Good rate but terrible application process

It took over 3 months to sort our new mortgage with hsbc despite having been known to them for over 20 years as a current account holder. The online application process was hellish as the system made me reset my username and password every time I tried to log on. And all this at the time of their tv ads where they boasted they could agree your mortgage in a day. Still, good rate saved us £200 pcm so worth it I suppose.

0.99% 2 year

great product, took ages to get approval through initially despite being a 20 year customer (I think because they were overwhelmed with demand), but customer service person was very helpful and seemed to make an extra effort to get things through

Best rate, Easy to renew

As a HSBC current account customer HSBC seemed like the logical choice for a mortgage. I was also surprised to find they had one of the lowest rates of the big banks and as I was already a customer I didn't have to pay a fee for having a 3 year fixed rate on my mortgage. They were so good i recently re-fixed with them!

Poor Customer Service - Outrageous criteria

I went to an independent mortgage advisor as my fixed rate had expired with my current lender (not HSBC). HSBC were offering great rates and as what we thought were a reputable company we went with them. 3 months later after numerous calls from my mortgage advisor, HSBC were still no further down the line to offer us a mortgage. In this time we were paying £130pm extra on current mortgage! HSBC have no concept of customer service and their criteria for even a low mortgage value is ridiculous even when we could afford the payments twice over. In the end we pulled out of the application. We are just grateful we were dependent on the mortgage for the purchase of a house as we would have lost it due to their incompetencies. I do not recommend HSBC whatsoever!

Awful

I have been a hsbc customer since 1996 and wanted to change the mortgage I had with them. They have ridiculously strict lending policies. We were told we would have to stay on the standard rate at the end of a fixed term deal as we didn't meet affordability criteria. This meant we were actually paying more each month. They offered no help to us whatsoever despite the fact we had never missed a payment. Needless to say we moved our mortgage to another bank and got a great deal.

It took 4 months for our HSBC mortgage application to be approved, a good 2 months longer than it should have done.mwe were passed pillar to post so many times we seriously regretted picking HSBC over a comparable deal with a building society. Our application was even closed down by HSBC for no apparent reason with us only finding out (and getting it opened again) when we called for an update. When the application finally went through I put a formal complaint in and to give the complaints department their due credit they compensated us with an amount equivalent to what we had been paying in higher mortgage payments while the application was going through. The rate is very good and is saving us nearly £200 pcm but the process of securing it was seriously painful!
