IS YOUR MORTGAGE DEAL COMMING TO AN END?
Remortgaging, also known as refinancing, refers to the process of taking out a new mortgage on a property that you already own. This new mortgage is used to pay off the existing mortgage, and it may also involve borrowing additional funds against the equity in your property.
People choose to remortgage for various reasons, including:
- Obtaining a better interest rate: If interest rates have decreased since you initially took out your mortgage, remortgaging can allow you to secure a lower interest rate, potentially reducing your monthly payments.
- Accessing equity: Remortgaging provides an opportunity to release some of the equity you have built up in your property. This can be useful for home improvements, consolidating debt, or funding other expenses.
- Switching mortgage deals: If you’re approaching the end of a fixed-rate or discounted-rate period, remortgaging allows you to switch to a new mortgage deal. This can help you avoid moving onto a higher standard variable rate (SVR), which tends to be less favorable.
- Changing loan terms: Remortgaging provides an opportunity to modify the terms of your mortgage, such as the duration or repayment structure. For example, you may choose to switch from an interest-only mortgage to a repayment mortgage.
When considering remortgaging, it’s important to weigh the potential benefits against the associated costs. These costs may include arrangement fees, valuation fees, legal fees, and early repayment charges on your existing mortgage. It’s advisable to seek advice from a mortgage advisor or broker who can help you assess your options and determine whether remortgaging is the right choice for your circumstances.
