Start Saving Today:
The great thing about the Newcastle Big Home Saver account is that it can be opened with an investment of just one pound so it's easy to get started, and, what's more, for every month in which you make an investment and don't make any withdrawals, we'll pay you a bonus.
When you have saved your mortgage deposit you can choose a mortgage product from our current range available at that time. The offer of any mortgage product will be subject to meeting the terms and conditions of the product and our lending criteria. If for any reason you are unable to proceed with a mortgage a cash reward will not be paid. Please see below for full terms and conditions.
Once you've saved for your deposit our mortgage advisers will be happy to help you decide which mortgage is most suitable for you. Once you're ready to proceed please call our mortgage sales team on: 0845 606 4488.
Transfering your ISA's:
You can not transfer other ISA's into this account.
Remember, once you've reached your tax free savings limit, you cannot put any more money into your account - even if you've withdrawn funds during the year.
