Sounds good, doesn’t it?
Should I remortgage?
The main reason you might want to remortgage is to save money in the long run. But there are other reasons too! Here are some of the main ones.
Your current deal is coming to an end – once your fixed term mortgage comes to an end, your lender will put you on their standard variable rate or reversionary rate. This is unlikely to be the best rate you can get. Start thinking about remortgaging around 3-4 months before your rate comes to an end.
You want a better interest rate – if you’re tied into a mortgage rate that you want to escape from, we can help you to decide whether the early repayment charge is worth it for the savings you’ll make in the long run. You could be surprised.
You want more flexibility – want to overpay your mortgage, or even have the freedom to take a payment holiday every now and again? You might even want to switch to an offset or current account mortgage where you use savings to reduce the amount of interest you pay. Whatever the reason, there are flexible deals out there, and we can help you to find them.
You want to borrow more – remortgaging with a new lender might help you to raise money at a favourable rate. Whether you want to finance some much-needed home improvements or pay off your existing debts, remortgaging could be the way to go. Your home’s value has risen a lot – this is always a nice situation to be in. In these circumstances, you’ll often be eligible for much lower rates. It’s always worth finding out. You’re concerned about interest rates going up – your current mortgage rate may not be affected by interest rates rising, but it’s worth checking. And if you’re on a variable rate, then now could be the perfect time to consider switching to a fixed rate.
You want to add or remove a partner – if you’re adding a partner, in some cases this will make you eligible for a better rate when remortgaging. If you’re removing a partner, you may need to consider whether you can afford to meet the repayments on your own.

For those seeking to increase their existing borrowing, alternative finance options may be available and more appropriate for your needs. For example, a further advance from your existing lender or an unsecured loan (e.g. a personal loan). For those seeking a ‘Retirement Interest Only Mortgage’, a ‘Lifetime Mortgage’ may be available and more appropriate for your needs.
Warning : You may have to pay an early repayment charge to your existing lender if you remortgage your home.
