Providing individual mortgage advice; unique to you
When you remortgage, you are switching your mortgage to another deal, and frequently, another lender.
It is worth noting that a remortgage is not the best option in all cases. Even if the lender you are considering switching to is offering a lower APRC, 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 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.
