A remortgage, is also known as refinancing. The remortgage process involves obtaining a new mortgage to pay off the existing mortgage on the same property. Many clients remortgage for various reasons, such as:
- Acquiring a better rate from another lender
- Changing the mortgage term or loan amount.
- Raising capital
- Consolidating debt
Remortgages are determined by the value of a property and the loan amount required; this gives a Loan to Value (LTV), seen as a percentage; mortgage lenders in turn offer specific products deals based on Loan to Values i.e. 70%LTV; 80%LTV; 90%LTV. Generally, mortgage lenders offer incentives for remortgage applicants i.e. free basic survey or free legals; based on specific Loan to Values. Our mortgage advisers will advise you the right mortgage deal based on your circumstances; also searching those incentives.
