Want to Save Money or Borrow More?
We can help….
A remortgage is where you take out a new mortgage on a property you already own, with the new mortgage replacing your current one. This is generally done to either increase the level of borrowing or to benefit from better rates available in the market, although there are other reasons why it might be suitable (such as moving to a more expensive property).
Remortgaging can bring many benefits such as reducing monthly payments, freeing up more money to spend on the things you enjoy in life, or becoming mortgage free years earlier than planned.
Small differences in rates can have a big impact on your repayments, so it’s crucial to get expert impartial advice to ensure you get the best remortgage deal.
As a Boutique firm, we offer you a tailored, personal service. You will be assigned your own Personal Adviser who will advise you throughout the entire remortgage process, from start to finish. They will be available to you whenever you have a query or concern or just need an update.
As Independent and Whole of Market advisers, we work for you, not the estate agent or lender. We have access to the entire broker market of 1,000’s of mortgages, and unlike online comparison sites, our advisers tailor your remortgage to fit your personal circumstances – there is no such thing as a “one size fits all” approach.
Using a Mortgage Adviser can help you quickly navigate the range of mortgages on offer, access the “broker only” market of deals, and guide you through the process which includes potentially eliminating a lot of paperwork.
Your personal remortgage adviser will complete all the relevant paperwork for you, liaising with solicitors, lenders and surveyors throughout the process. One application process rather than one for each bank will save you time and reduce the chance of damaging your credit rating.

In essence, remortgaging is the act of switching your existing mortgage to a new deal, either with your existing lender or a different provider. You’re not moving house and the new mortgage is still secured against the same property.
Whilst there are often financial benefits to remortgaging this doesn’t mean that there are no costs involved in the process. Common costs can include Arrangement fees, Booking fees, Legal Fees, Valuation fees and there may be fees involved with leaving your current deal, such as Early Repayment Fees and Exit Fees. A good regulated mortgage adviser will make sure all relevant fees are included in the assessment of whether to remortgage.
Broadly, yes you can, although there a few things to consider.
There are two main ways in which you can remortgage to pay off debts. One is to remortgage to release the equity in your property as a lump sum to repay other unsecured debts. Another way is to remortgage to a lower monthly payment to free up money to help meet the payments for other debts.
However, remortgaging to clear debts is not always the best option. There are limitations on borrowing, both from lenders and based on your current situation. More importantly, there may be better ways to repay your debts. As such it is important to discuss your unique personal situation with a regulated mortgage adviser.
