Remortgaging means switching your mortgage to another deal with another lender, without moving home. When the initial interest rate comes to an end, it is likely that you have reverted to the lenders standard variable rate or SVR.
Generally, the SVR isn’t the cheapest option and can be higher than alternatives either offered by your existing lender or a new one so switching mortgage deals can therefore often work out much cheaper and save you money either monthly, long term, or both.
Remortgaging can also help pay off your mortgage early by replacing your current mortgage with better terms a lower interest rate and keeping your monthly payments the same, you will be able to reduce your mortgage term and get your mortgage repaid quicker.
Remortgaging isnt complicated, the process to switch your mortgage deal can be straight forward with lenders often offering great incentives to make the process much easier.
You may be able to find a new mortgage deal with your current lender and it may even work out cheaper to do so. Always check it against the rest of the market place though, just to make sure you are getting the best deal right for you.
Most mortgages have an early repayment charge (ERC) during the initial deal period, so you cant remortgage during that time without paying a penalty charge. However, once your deal is up, you are free to move your mortgage without paying these fees.
