Remember, if you choose to do this, you will have to pay interest on them. Luckily, most remortgage deals have no or low set up costs. But, it’s important to make sure you check first before committing to a new mortgage deal.

If you feel that your current mortgage deal is restricting you however, and are considering switching to either get a better rate, reduce your term or simply want a more flexible mortgage, then it has never been a better time to do so, with interest rates at an all-time low.
