HSBC Online Banking activation

We're currently making improvements to our Online Banking service.

If you registered for Online Banking prior to the 17th December 2014 it's not possible for you to activate your existing Secure Key and you will need to re-start your registration.

If you registered for Online Banking after this date, please log on to Online Banking entering your username, memorable answer and your password, from here you will be prompted to activate your Secure Key.

We apologise for any inconvenience which this delay may cause. Once you are registered, we look forward to introducing you to Online Banking, including the exciting enhancements we're working on now.

Buying your first home is an exciting time and is likely to involve some of the most important financial decisions you'll ever make. However, the process doesn't have to be difficult. That's why it's important to get the correct advice and be equipped with as much information as possible and our useful Homebuyer's Guide is there to help you on your journey to becoming a homeowner.

At HSBC we offer three types of mortgages for first time buyers:

1. Fixed rate mortgages

These provide the security of fixed mortgage payments until an agreed date, no matter what happens to interest rates.

2. Tracker rate mortgages

These provide you with flexibility to follow the Bank of England base rate during the term of your mortgage.

After your discounted rate period your mortgage will then revert to HSBC variable rate for the remainder of the term.

3. Discount rate mortgages

These mortgages provide you with set discount off our Standard Variable rate for an agreed period so you can have lower initial monthly payments.

An Early Repayment Charge (ERC) applies to some of our products. You'll have an annual overpayment allowance during the year when the ERC applies. The annual overpayment allowance is the maximum amount you'll be able to overpay on top of your monthly payments. If you exceed your annual overpayments allowance, you will be charged an ERC on the overpayment you made which exceeded your annual overpayment allowance.

If an ERC is applicable an illustration of this will be displayed on both your Key Facts Illustration (KFI) and your Mortgage Offer.

For more information read our article on understanding the different mortgages HSBC offer.
