Why remortgage?

If you've recently moved to the standard variable rate of your mortgage, it's likely to be more expensive than the starting rate. In that situation, a remortgage could reduce your monthly payments.

You may also want to borrow more on your mortgage and use that extra money to invest in home improvements, to release equity for another investment or to help children with further education.

Four steps to remortgaging

Before you start the remortgage process, there's a few steps to follow to make sure you remortgaging is right for you.

  1. 1

    Find out what your property is worth

    Your new mortgage provider will need to know how much your current property is worth. They'll carry out a valuation, which might involve a surveyor but could be as simple as a drive-by valuation or using the internet to find out typical prices.

  2. 2

    Check out how much is left to pay

    Look at your last mortgage statement to see how much is left to pay on your current mortgage. And if you move a mortgage to us from another provider, we'll pay your valuation and legal costs. (Exclusions apply.)

  3. 3

    Check for exit or repayment fees

    You might have to pay fees if you leave or pay off your current mortgage. Check your paperwork and, if you're unsure, contact your mortgage provider to get the details.
