What is remortgaging?


Remortgaging is when you change the mortgage on your property to another lender... or, you can choose to stay with your current provider and apply for a different mortgage

In both cases you could change the mortgage term or the amount that you're borrowing 

This is a great opposrtunity to see if you could save on your monthly repayment by choosing a mortgage with a lower interest rate

If you secure a lower interest rate, you could choose to keep the same monthly payment...paying your mortgage off quicker!

Early repayment charges and product fees may apply.
