Looking to remortgage?

Want a better deal or need to free up some capital?

We can help.

If you’re looking to save money on your monthly mortgage payments, free up some equity or consolidate debt, remortgaging could be a smart move. With the right remortgage deal, you could lower your interest rate, switch to a more competitive lender, or unlock equity in your property.

At Mortgage Decisions, we understand that remortgaging can seem overwhelming, which is why we’re here to help. Our expert advisors can guide you through the process and find the best remortgage deals for your needs and circumstances.

There are several different ways to remortgage, and we have access to thousands of mortgage products from over 90 lenders.

These include:

  • Fixed rate mortgages

You pay the same monthly payment for as long as your fixed-rate period lasts – when it ends you can apply for a remortgage to secure another competitive mortgage deal.

  • Tracker rate mortgages

A tracker rate mortgage will be linked to the Bank of England’s base rate. When the Bank of England base rate is low, your repayments will reflect this, and if the rate rises so will your monthly repayments.

  • Variable rate mortgages

A variable rate mortgage, your monthly repayments will be linked to the lenders standard variable rate so, when their variable rate is low, your repayments will be low too, but will rise when their variable rate goes up.

What is remortgage and how does it work?

A remortgage is the process of replacing your current mortgage with a new one from a different lender or a different deal with your current lender. This is often done to take advantage of better interest rates, to borrow more money, or to switch from a variable rate to a fixed rate mortgage. When you remortgage, your new lender will pay off your existing mortgage and you will start making repayments to the new lender instead.

Why should I remortgage?

  • Remortgaging can help you save money on a monthly basis, consolidate debt, or release equity for your to use as you want.
  • You can potentially reduce your monthly payments or shorten your mortgage term by finding the best remortgage deals available
  • With a competitive remortgage deal, you can benefit from lower interest rates and better terms, giving you more control over your finance

When should I remortgage?

Remortgaging may be beneficial in various scenarios such as when your current mortgage deal is coming to an end, when you want to switch to a better interest rate, or when you want to release equity from your home. However, you should weigh the pros and cons, and the decision to remortgage should ultimately depend on your individual circumstances and financial goals.

Remortgaging is typically a straightforward process, and many people find it easier than applying for a mortgage for the first time.

  1. Research the right remortgage deals and rates available to you
  2. Contact the lender to begin the application process
  3. Provide information about your current mortgage and financial situation, as well as your reasons for remortgaging, and supporting documentation
  4. Wait for your application to be approved
  5. Arrange for the new mortgage to pay off the old one
  6. Your solicitor or conveyancer will handle the legal work and transfer of funds

Kevin and Beccy have been extremely helpful - firstly in exploring viable options to suit my situation and secondly keeping me in the loop and dealing with queries that arose along the way. This is my second mortgage with them, both of which had possibly unusual elements and they were able to navigate me through them and find me good mortgages.
