How to get the best remortgage deals

It’s important to remember that remortgage rates aren’t the be all and end all. Comparison tables will offer you the best rate, but won’t usually indicate the best deal for you. Like our remortgage guide outlines, you need to factor in the total cost. There’s little point in taking a 2% 2 year rate with a £2,000 fee when you’re borrowing just £50,000, if there’s a 3.5% deal with no fee. From this example, borrowing 50,000 would make the higher rate much better (almost £1,000) over the initial period and would be recommended over the lower rate…

Mortgage balance Rate Term Monthly cost Total 2 yr cost
50,000 2% 25 years 212 7,088
50,000 3.5% 25 years 250 6,000

So when does it become worth paying a fee to remortgage?

This really depends on your specific situation, namely; the amount you’re borrowing, the amount of equity in your property, which products you’re eligible for, and of those – which are the best fee free and fee loaded deals going, plus is there any other incentive (such as cash-back or other free stuff).

Using the same example as before, below is an illustration of how to compare the deals to work out which is best for you. When comparing 2% + £2k fee, and 3.5% with no fee, you’d need to be borrowing around £115,000 to pretty much break even, so borrowing more than this should usually make it worthwhile. As you can see from the table below - taking the 2% deal on a mortgage of £200k would benefit the borrower more than £1,500 over the 2 years.

Mortgage balance Rate Term Monthly cost Total 2 yr cost
115,000 2% 25 years 488 13,712
115,000 3.5% 25 years 575 13,800
200,000 2% 25 years 848 22,352
200,000 3.5% 25 years 1002 24,048
