How remortgaging saves you money

Here we break down the perception of what remortgage means and how it could save you money on your mortgage repayments:

Remortgaging‘ has been a term associated with raising money against your property to consolidate debts or extend your home however this has changed. In the consumer-led, comparison-driven world that we all now live in, many of the remortgages taking place in the UK are now customers switching providers to secure a better deal that saves them money.

It’s thought that as many as 40% of UK Homeowners with a mortgage are currently paying more interest than they might have to because their mortgage loan has moved onto their providers’ standard variable interest rate. Mortgage lenders now have mortgage deals designed for people who are on, or are about to fall onto their current lenders’ standard variable rate and wish to secure a better deal.

Many of the usual inconveniences of switching your mortgage provider have now become avoidable. With working out which lender is offering you the best deal, being dealt with by a qualified mortgage adviser and many of the costs you would usually find with switching mortgage providers including the cost of the legal & property survey processes often being paid for by the new provider.

With the Bank of England bringing the base rate down to a historic low of 0.1% in recent weeks many UK mortgage providers have brought out new fixed-rate products that pass this saving on to new mortgage customers.

Applying for a new mortgage is easy.

There has likely never been a better time to sit down with an adviser and discuss switching providers. Call us on 08454 500200 to find out more.

 

Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage.
There may be a fee for mortgage advice. The actual amount you pay will depend upon your circumstances.
The fee is up to 1% but a typical fee is 0.3% of the amount borrowed.

My request to renew my existing mortgage with Mortgage Decisions was superbly handled by David who is a most knowledgeable person. I was impressed with his professionalism and his attention to detail. The end to end process was explained throughout by David in particular the various options available to me. This is the second time that Mortgage Decisions have assisted with my mortgage and I wouldn’t hesitate in asking them again in the future.

This is my first experience with getting a mortgage, but Rob explained everything clearly, answering all my questions, and helped me get the best mortgage for me. Louis also helped by keeping me updated with the progress of the application and chasing the lender on my behalf. Overall, a positive experience.
