If your current mortgage deal is coming to an end, or you want to switch to a new mortgage deal to either help you make some long awaited home improvements, purchase additional property or reduce your current mortgage term, then there are a few things you should consider to ensure you get the best remortgage deal.
Here’s our top 5 tips for remortgaging your home:
When your current mortgage expires, your lender will automatically move you to a new deal, which will likely be a higher rate and therefore more expensive, unless you shop around!
Ensure yours remains competitive by searching for a new deal around 3 months before your current mortgage is due to expire. This will give you plenty of time to see what's on offer when remortgaging your home.
Look at all your options
When looking for the best mortgage deal, speak to your current lender to see what they are prepared to offer you. But, make sure you also look at what else is on offer, or you could miss out!
As a whole of market mortgage broker, we can help you compare thousands of exclusive deals from the UK’s leading mortgage lenders, which can’t be found on either the high street or comparison sites, to ensure you get the right product for your needs.
Consider the costs
If you are currently tied into a mortgage, you will need to check whether repaying your mortgage before the end of the agreed term will incur an exit fee and/or early repayment charge.
Your new lender may also charge a fee for arranging your mortgage, valuation and legal fees, so it’s important to check whether a new mortgage deal would be the best option, which we can take care of for you.
