Should you remortgage?

Remortgage to save money

According to recent mortgage statistics, almost 30% of gross mortgage advances in 2022 were given to those remortgaging. The main reason for remortgaging is to save money. If you’re on a fixed rate mortgage, once the initial rate ends, you will move onto your lender’s Standard Variable Rate (SVR), which will usually be more expensive than your current rate. Switching to a new mortgage deal at this point can help lower your mortgage costs.

Remortgage to borrow more

Alternately, you might want to remortgage to borrow money. As you pay off your mortgage, the equity you have in your property increases, and this equity can be released via a remortgage. The cash that is released can be used, for example, to fund home improvements or to consolidate existing borrowing.

What are the fees for remortgaging?

The fees will depend on the circumstances of your remortgage. Common remortgaging fees include:

  • Arrangement fees
  • Booking/reservation fees
  • Legal fees
  • Exit fees
  • Early repayment charges (if leaving your existing deal early)

When deciding whether to remortgage, you should work out all the additional fees you’ll need to pay and make sure they won’t outweigh the savings you’ll make by remortgaging.

Can I get a remortgage deal?

You will need to compare mortgages to work out the best rate available to you. What type of remortgage deal you get will depend on other factors, such as:

  • How much equity you have in your home

  • Whether your income has changed

  • Whether you are trying to borrow more or downsize

What are remortgage rates?

The more equity you have in your home, the more security you will be putting forward. This means you can expect a better interest rate because you are seen as less of a risk in terms of paying back the mortgage. You need to compare interest rates, which you can do using the APR. Mortgage rates have been at historic lows, so it’s worth looking at comparing remortgage rates.
