Mortgages are often the biggest outgoing of the month - but could you save money by getting a remortgage?

What is Remortgaging?

Remortgaging is the process of switching your mortgage deal from one provider to another when your current mortgage deal ends. Most people choose to do this to avoid having to go onto the Standard Variable Rate of their mortgage provider and to take advantage of any remortgage deals however it’s often worth considering any fees or charges you may need to pay should you decide to switch lenders.

Some of the advantages in switching mortgages:

Securing a lower interest rate on your mortgage to reduce your monthly mortgage payments.
Reducing the term of your mortgage.
Releasing the capital in your home to pay for things like home improvements.
To avoid being moved onto the Standard Variable Rate of your mortgage provider as this may be higher than your introductory interest rate.

If you decide that remortgaging is the best choice for you, you should also consider switching to a different type of remortgage deal and whether or not you want to borrow some more on top of your existing mortgage amount.

Affordability is as important for remortgaging as it is for any other type of mortgage, so before proceeding, it’s a good idea to refer to our borrowing calculator tool to see how much we would be able to lend to you.
