What Is A Remortgage?In most cases a remortgage is referring to the process of moving the mortgage on your home from one lender to another, without actually moving house. If you are changing the mortgage on a property you own but rent out, then that would be termed a buy to let remortgage. The process is that when your new remortgage completes the current mortgage balance, along with any early repayment charges (more on these below), owed to the previous mortgage lender is paid off with the money you are raising from the new mortgage lender. All while using the same property as security for the mortgage. Any extra money you have borrowed or excess that is left when the balances have been settled is paid directly to you, the homeowner. Your new mortgage lender is then paid by you in the normal way and they take a legal charge over your home as security in place of the previous lender.
Why Should I Remortgage?Our qualified advisers can provide you with expert remortgage advice on remortgages and why you should or shouldn`t look to re-finance your property, but don`t forget that in the end it is all down to you, and what you want to get out of mortgaging your property. To help you out here are some pros and cons:
- You could save a lot of money on a lower interest rate
- A fixed repayment gives you stability for budgeting purposes
- Fund home improvements and potentially increase the value of your property
- Release money from your homes equity if it has risen in value
- Reduce cash flow stress by paying off other credit or loans
- There will be some fees or charges involved
- You may incur Early Repayment Charges
- A fixed rate will not benefit from any drop in rates for the fixed term
- You could increase the total amount payable over the term
- Property values can go up and down so can go into negative equity
- Mortgages are secured on your home and therefore carry additional risks
If you are still unsure whether it is the right decision for you, then let one of our friendly advisers give you some no obligation helpful remortgage advice, starting with just chatting through your circumstances over the phone. You would be surprised at how helpful talking your scenario over the phone can be - even the most confusing or complex of situations can often be resolved with a few simple questions.
The Remortgage Process
The one constant you can guarantee on, is that we will put you at the forefront of the application for the whole time and the remortgage advice that you have received will be from attentive and knowledgeable advisers.
Are There Charges Associated with Moving Your MortgageLike most forms of finance there are often costs involved when you want to end an existing credit agreement or mortgage contract to go elsewhere, a remortgage is no different. What is very important to look out for is if your current lender are going to charge you any fees for moving the mortgage away from them. These are referred to as Early Repayment Charges (ERCs) and normally will decrease the longer you have had your mortgage, until there are none. These can be many thousands of pounds so your adviser will clarify these for you. There will also be some smaller charges for the administration from your current lender to `discharge` your mortgage from them. Unfortunately you can`t always avoid all charges and your new lender may need to charge you for their services when providing the new remortgage. Matters like Valuation fees, booking fees and application fees can all incur extra possible costs when remortgaging. Fortunately some mortgage plans have positives like `cash back` upon completion which offsets any outlay. Like any mortgage we give advice on we try to cater to your every need and if those needs are that you do not want to pay any notable fees to the new lender, then we will do our very best to find you a remortgage that has none. Our fees are totally transparent and only payable upon completion. By taking advice you are leaving the hard work to your adviser and at First Choice Finance we also process the case on your behalf to keep this moving smoothly. As we also provide homeowner loans it gives you another way to get the funds you require if the remortgage route turns out to be unsuitable. Start the ball rolling, even if you just want to get a feel for the figures involved, by filling in our 60 second on line form or calling 0800 298 3000 (landline) 0333 0031505 (mobile) and we will try our best to find the right remortgage for you.
Are There Other Options Besides Remortgaging?It is true that a remortgage can sometimes lower your interest rate and save you money. Sounds great right? However sometimes, for whatever reason, it isn`t always the option you want. If you have taken on all of the remortgage advice that we have to offer and haven`t yet found what you are looking for don`t worry, it isn`t the end of the road, a homeowner loan may yet be the answer.
In the case of a remortgage, you may have been interested because you want to obtain some extra money for home improvements or debt consolidation. Well if you would prefer to keep your mortgage rate with your existing provider, or the Early Repayment Charges are too high to make it viable, then maybe you would be interested in an any purpose homeowner loan to get the finance while still keeping your existing mortgage provider and rate? Perhaps you are looking to borrow money against your existing property to buy a second home? In this scenario we could arrange a remortgage for you on your current home and then arrange a purchase mortgage as either a Buy to Let mortgage or a second home mortgage for you. If you give us a call and ask for some advice on remortgaging, you may be pleasantly surprised as to just how many options there are available to you.
Long Term Secured Loans An Alternative To Remortgaging.If you have early repayment charges on your current mortgage an alternative option is secured loans also known as a second mortgage. Secured loans are loans that can be used for almost any purpose, spread over 5-25 years, you can borrow up to £100,000 with a secured loan.
