Remortgaging is growing in popularity for homeowners. In the current climate, any way to save money should be investigated, and switching to a new lender might just help you do that.

What is remortgaging?
Remortgaging is the act of switching from your current mortgage to another, paying off your current loan with the new one. You might do it to reduce your mortgage term. Remortgaging could also be a great way to cut costs. Switching mortgage should be straightforward, but as is the case with property matters, it comes with its own pitfalls.

How do I remortgage?
When you’ve found that perfect deal, we recommend you speak to your current lender. They might try to match the offer. Once you’ve found an offer you’re happy with, you’ll need to make an application and get it approved. Then, we’ll begin the process of remortgaging. This is how we’ll do it:
- Once your offer has been approved, we’ll ask you for a copy of the offer along with a redemption statement from your current lender. We’ll also ask you to provide title deeds or any relevant legal documents relating to your property.
- We’ll then get to work, ensuring you have the legal title to your home, reviewing your lenders requirements and making any necessary property searches. This is usually only necessary if you have a new lender.
- Once we’re satisfied with the search results, everything’s in check and you’re happy with the terms and conditions laid out in the mortgage offer, we’ll agree on a completion date with you. We’ll also request a final redemption statement from your existing lender.
- Upon request, your mortgage lender will release the funds on the date of completion. That will allow you to redeem your existing mortgage, and the remortgage will be complete. The final step is to register the new mortgage with the Land Registry, which we will do upon completion.
