Remortgaging can be a good way to save money. A remortgage doesn’t just mean borrowing more money and extending the term of your mortgage. It’s an opportunity to renegotiate the interest rate you’re paying and potentially save yourself a lot of money in the long run.

What is a remortgage and why should you consider it?

Remortgaging allows you to borrow more money against the equity you have in your home. This can be done, for example, to secure a lower interest rate which would save you some money in the long run. You may also be able to release some of the equity in your home, giving you some extra cash.

How does a remortgage work

When you remortgage, you take out a new loan to pay off your current mortgage. This new loan will have a new interest rate, which may be lower than the rate on your current mortgage.

Ways to get the best deal on your remortgage

A few tips include:

  • Make sure you compare rates from a range of lenders.
  • Ask your current lender if they can offer you a better deal.
  • Consider fixing your interest rate as protection from future rate rises.
  • Make sure you understand all the fees involved.
  • Get advice from a mortgage advisor to find the best deal for you.
