Re-mortgaging a home means you are not buying a new home, you are simply switching your mortgage to another lender or new product from your existing lender in order to get a better deal. When you first take out a mortgage, no doubt you would have secured the best deal that was available to you at that time. However your circumstances may have changed and the products on offer will have changed so do you know if your current mortgage is performing as well as it could be?

Re-mortgaging has become quite straightforward and commonplace as we live in a culture where changing providers, whether they are mobile phone, insurance or utility, is the norm. This has played to the advantage of the consumer who now has a wider choice of products to choose from.

There are many reasons why you might be thinking about re-mortgaging. Saving money by reducing your monthly payments is a key motive. Avoiding high variable or fixed rate interest rates is another that can be achieved by switching lenders. You may want to raise additional funds by releasing equity that would have built up over time from your property to spend on home improvements or to help your children get on the property ladder.

Four BIG reasons to save for a BIGGER house deposit

1. Cheaper monthly repayments – the bigger your mortgage deposit, the smaller your loan will be. The smaller your loan is, the cheaper your monthly repayments will be.

2. Better mortgage deals – a larger deposit will also make you less risky for mortgage lenders and they’ll generally offer you lower interest rates.

3. Improved chance of being accepted – lenders calculate if you can afford the mortgage repayments. If you put down a big deposit it’s more likely you will pass as the monthly repayment will be affordable.

4. Less risk –if you own more of your home you are less likely to fall into ‘negative equity’. Being in negative equity can make moving or remortgaging very difficult.
