Hi I have completed a request online to increase my monthly mortgage payment but it hasn't been actioned. The information my online mortgage account gives is out of date. My monthly payment is showing the amount it was before the interest cut.  My direct debit has been reduced & the reduced amount taken out of my bank. I would like to increase my monthly payment & pay a lump sum I tried phoning but it said essential calls only so I hung up. I can't make an overpayment online as the service says it's not available. In these unprecedented times I don't want to occupy the banks time & prevent someone getting through who is desperate for their help. If I leave things as they are I'm paying interest that I don't have to. Can anyone advise me. Btw mortgage is with Lloyds. Thanks

    Looks like you can do a bank transfer/standing order. Just make sure you have no early repayment charges first

    you should be able to overpay online through your own account  setting it up as a payee and using your mortgage account number as reference? Look through your Wellcome pack and see if they give you details on how to pay through your account. My mortgage is not with Lloyds but I think this is standard. 
    Initial mortgage bal £487.5k, target £384k
