How does it all work? Ahead of your mortgage’s fixed-term period coming to an end, we’ll get in touch with you to discuss the options available to you, but to summarise, there is often a choice between a full remortgage, or a product transfer.
A product transfer is simply switching from one mortgage product to another, at your same lender. This is often a straightforward process and allows you to take advantage of some of the fixed-rate deals available from your existing lender, to prevent you going onto the Standard Variable Rate.
However, in some cases, there may be other deals available from other lenders in the market that are more suited to your current circumstances, and to access these would require a remortgage.
The remortgage process take longer, and is similar to that of when you first applied for a mortgage3. There would be evidence required of your earnings and property valuations undertaken, with more chance of fees payable to lenders, however, some may find that this inconvenience is offset through accessing deals that could possibly save more money and be of greater fit to your ever-changing circumstances.
