Remortgages – How to Find the Help and Advice You Need

Updated: May 14, 2021

Author: Pete Mugleston Mortgage Advisor, MD

Our mission is to ensure everyone gets the right advice and spread the word that there are countless ways to cut costs or raise capital by remortgaging your home or investment properties.

The expert brokers we work with can arrange remortgages for a variety of purposes, including…

As well as for investment, renovations and a whole host of other reasons.

Read through our articles written exclusively by remortgage experts in all kinds of mortgage niches.

The advisors we work with have a strong track record handling unusual or complicated cases and arrange remortgages for homeowners and businesses every day.

How does a remortgage work?

When you remortgage you change the mortgage you have on your property. You can do this by moving to a different deal with your current lender or by switching it to a new lender.

If you’re switching to a new lender when the remortgage is executed your new lender will pay the outstanding money owed to your old lender via a solicitor. Your new mortgage will then continue under the new terms.

If you are remortgaging to release cash from your property, the process is similar to above, but the additional money you are borrowing is paid to your solicitor and then into your account or sent to you by cheque.

How long does a remortgage take to complete?

Compared to getting a mortgage to buy a property, remortgaging is usually much easier and quicker to complete. It’s relatively normal to complete the transaction inside a month and can, sometimes, be sorted even faster. To ensure a smooth transaction it pays to approach things with accuracy from the start and have everything you need gathered together before you apply.

With no house to buy or sell, no sales chain or contracts to exchange the process is fairly straightforward from start to finish and more simple than applying for a new mortgage.

Naturally, there are times when it’s complicated by various factors outside your immediate control (such as applying for a remortgage with bad credit) but working with an experienced remortgage broker can help ensure you get a swift result.

An expert broker with whole-of-market access, like those we work with, can give you bespoke advice on remortgages and connect you with the best available deal, taking all your circumstances into account.
