Why Remortgage?

By: Gill Critchley

When people take out a mortgage on their property they are often looking for the best deal that they can find. However, this offer doesn't always last and the discounted rates and other limited offers leave people wanting a better deal from elsewhere.

This can mean that people are left to find better offers. A remortgage is when you move to another provider who is offering a better deal.

People remortgage their property for many reasons but the main reason is because they will be financially better off by taking out a mortgage with a different provider.

After the fixed rate mortgages and tracker mortgages have come to the end of their set time, the interest rate tends to increase significantly.

Research has found that people who remortgage their property during the term of their mortgage are a lot more likely to end up paying out less on interest.

The actual process of remortgaging is a fairly simple one but it has to be remembered that it is still a financial agreement and it is therefore advisable to compare a variety of quotes from different providers.

This may mean that you will cut down the cost of your payments and after homeowners have had to cope with five interest rate rises in the past year, this saving will be a welcome change.

There are around 6,000 mortgage offers on the market so finding the one that you think would be best for you is may not be easy. Another thing that needs to be considered is that there may be redemption fees. If you do want to change your mortgage, the best thing to do is to check whether there are any redemption fees for switching; you may find that if there are, it may not be worth the move. As well as comparing deals yourself, it is also a good idea to speak to an adviser for some expert advice.
