There’s no doubt about it. Your home is the most expensive item you’ll ever buy and it’s probably your biggest asset.

But sometimes you need to use that asset to your own advantage.

Say, for example, you’re coming to the end of your fixed term and want to start looking for a better deal on your mortgage.

Or say you want to get access to a sum of money – known as equity – that you could free up to put an extension onto your house.

That’s where remortgaging comes in.

Remortgaging is basically the process of switching your existing mortgage to a new deal, using your property as security.

And there’s no doubt that it comes with many benefits.

Benefits of remortgages

For a start, you could switch to a better deal with lower interest rates, which could obviously save you money in the longer term. Also, by releasing some of the equity, you get a chunk of money that you could either invest elsewhere or, as we said before, invest in your existing home.

On the less positive side, however, the fact is that, when you remortgage, the chances are that you’re likely to increase your monthly payments.

There’s also often an arrangement fee on the new mortgage, coupled with solicitors’ fees – although some lenders offer this for free as part of the remortgage deal. If your existing mortgage hasn’t yet reached the end of its term, you could also be charged exit fees for leaving.

So while remortgaging can have many benefits, it does need to be carefully considered and weighed up.

That’s where we come in.
