    Just got a letter yesterday to say my tracker is now with pepper

    Haven't had a chance to ring them yet.

    Somewhere I lived when we entered the drop, now a rental back in positive

    worth 215 I owe about 185
    10 years left on an interest only tracker.

    Plan was to sell up in the next few years anyway renting isn't worth the hassle.

    I was just wondering are they doing discounts for ordinary punters?

    If I could get a discount on the mortgage it could be worth getting out now.

    The tracker has to be a pain for them at 1.5% above ECB.

    OK update I talked to pepper

    The transfer has not happened as yet , September or October this year.

    BOS are not offering discounts currently

    There is no indication pepper will offer discounts after ;-(

    Pity only banks and big players get discount and not ordinary punters

    You've a performing mortgage, in positive equity, at a 1.5% margin. How much discount do you expect they sold it at?

    If you said a 0.6% tracker, in negative equity and 2 years arrears you'd have some hope...

    No, you'll risk them repossessing it as house value is more than mortgage.

    My point was the buyer fund didn't get the discount you're imagining. Your mortgage is in a portfolio of 'good' loans. Ok, the margin isn't brilliant, but it's the norm in other countries. And they've a 10 year history of you paying this, even through a crisis. They know you're good for it.
    Its a good investment. The fund that bought it have valued it at least 97% of it's value.

    tongue in cheek on the not paying, as you say managed it through the bad times.

    Why would BOS sell if there is money to be made even if the margin is tight or normal by rest of EU standard?

    Great question! Was pondering this myself. Have a ECB+ 0.55% tracker from BOSI going to Pepper too, never been an issue with late payment etc. We’re some of the lucky ones. Was hopping Pepper might want to make a quick turnover here on a loss leader mortgage. Under new GDPR guidelines would a mortgage holder not be entitled to know what Pepper is paying? I know the mortgages are bundled but commercially pepper would be crazy not to entertain offers and realize gains on a mortgage they are effectively going to lose on in the 10 years remaining!
