Reasons why you should consider remortgaging
Many of the best mortgages offered by the mortgage lenders are only two to five year term
Most fixed rate mortgages, discount rate mortgages or tracker mortgages have only a two to five year term so we recommend you check the mortgage market four to six months before your mortgage rate is ending to ensure you have enough time to switch to an alternative mortgage product. If you don’t take any action your mortgage lender will often move your mortgage onto a standard variable rate and this rate is often higher than your current mortgage rate or the best alternative mortgage products available in the market.
A change in your financial circumstances
If your personal circumstances have changed you may want to consider remortgaging. For example if your salary has increased and you are in a position to pay a lump sum off your mortgage or overpay regularly you could save money by switching to a mortgage product that enables you to do this. If you wanted to borrow more money on your mortgage and your existing lender couldn’t offer this or the terms were not acceptable to you it is worth checking the mortgage market and reviewing your remortgage options.
‘Many people now annually review their building and contents insurance, car insurance and utilities so our mortgage broking team recommend you also check your mortgage product when it’s coming up for renewal to make sure it is still the most suitable product for you. Even if your mortgage has several years to run it could be worth switching. However, it is important that when we provide mortgage advice we look at the early repayment charges or exit fees on your mortgage product, as these can sometimes make it prohibitive to switch. In some circumstances it could still be cost effective to switch mortgage lenders or take out a new mortgage if your mortgage is very large or the new mortgage product terms are so much better than your current one, as this will offset any charges made by your current lender. If the value of your home has gone up significantly compared with the valuation you received when you took out your mortgage you may be in a lower loan to value category so you could be offered lower interest rates as a result.
