Re-mortgage

When you re-mortgage, you are switching your mortgage to another deal, and frequently, another lender.

Re-mortgages can be used for various reasons however, most people simply switch mortgages because it will work out cheaper for them. For example, the introductory discounted interest rate may have finished with your current lender; therefore, you could potentially get a new discount rate, or a lower APR, with another lender. Another example is when you may need to re-mortgage to consolidate debts.

It is worth noting that a re-mortgage is not the best option in all cases. Even if the lender you are considering switching to is offering a lower APR, you must take into consideration the facts that:

  • The new lender may charge you for valuation and solicitors fees, even if you have already paid these for your mortgage with your current lender.
  • If you switch mortgage lenders, remember to look at the overall repayment period. You may be able to pay less monthly, but check the final repayment date of the mortgage as well.
  • You may have to pay an early repayment charge to your existing lender if you re-mortgage.

Also you may be able to switch your mortgage deal with your current lender, avoiding any unnecessary costs. Many lenders will allow you to switch your mortgage deal reasonably frequently.

THINK CAREFULLY BEFORE SECURING OTHER DEBTS AGAINST YOUR HOME. YOUR HOME MAY BE REPOSSESSED IF YOU DO NOT KEEP UP REPAYMENTS ON A MORTGAGE OR ANY OTHER DEBT SECURED ON IT.

Debt consolidation is not always the most suitable option, consolidating debts must be carefully considered. It will usually mean more interest over a longer repayment term and there may also be early repayment penalties on your current mortgage, you should think carefully before securing other debts against your home. There are other ways to manage debt such as free debt advice charities, you can find out more by contacting the Money Advice Service these services may be more suitable for you
