Ray Boulger, John Charcol senior technical director said: “It’s the sort of thing that you won’t see in the standard mortgage conditions. If you look at lender criteria, it will never tell you whether there will be an all monies charge or not.
“In many cases you wouldn’t know about it until you got the mortgage offer. By that stage you are likely to be fairly committed, and if it’s a purchase you are unlikely to have time to reassess.”

They may also include any liabilities under any guarantee or indemnity that you have given, or may give in the future or for liabilities incurred by HSBC on your behalf.
“If any of the debts and or the other liabilities are not paid when due, HSBC can take possession of your property and other assets, sell them and put the money from the sale towards the debts and/or the other liabilities.”
