What is remortgaging?

Remortgaging is when you replace your existing mortgage plan with new terms. It could help you find a better deal and reduce your monthly mortgage payments, while also freeing up funds for home improvements or life’s important moments – like a wedding.

Reasons to remortgage

There are several reasons to remortgage, from homeowners who’ve seen an increase in market value to those looking to improve their home.

If your property is worth more now, considering your mortgage repayments against the estimate increase, you may want to renegotiate the terms of your mortgage.

Before looking into this, it’s worth knowing your equity, for example:

You can use this equity value to calculate your loan-to-value rate (LTV), which is given as a percentage. A lower LTV rate can be a great way to secure lower interest rates on your remortgage deal. This may mean:

The alternative is to borrow more money than you currently owe against the value of your home. You’ll receive the difference as a lump sum in your bank account to use for your chosen purpose.

There are alternatives though, and remortgaging doesn’t always rely on increases in market value. Whether it’s for a holiday, home renovation, or your business, there’s options to suit you.

For more information, read our guide to remortgaging to release equity in your home.

Before you apply…

Remortgaging is about using your current financial situation to save money on mortgage repayments or raise some much-needed cash as a lump sum.

You’ll benefit from applying for a remortgage if your financial situation is improving. However, if your home has decreased in value or your credit report has been negatively impacted, you could end up paying more per month than you set out to.

Before you apply, check out our guide on what you need to know before remortgaging.

Am I eligible for a remortgage?

Your eligibility for a remortgage depends on a few factors such as:

These factors can also determine how much you can borrow. With Norton Finance, this could vary anywhere between £5,000 to £500,000.

Lenders have their own criteria when deciding your remortgage terms, but by working with a wide range of lenders we can try to find a loan that suits your specific circumstances.

Before committing to a remortgage, ensure you can afford any new repayments or fees. For more advice, visit our guide to remortgaging with bad credit.

Costs of remortgaging

There may be fees involved when it comes to remortgaging. The process often requires contractual changes, so it’s important to consider these before deciding whether to remortgage.

Switching lenders could incur an early repayment charge if you’re still fixed into a deal, meaning you must pay your old lender for moving your mortgage. For example, a fixed rate mortgage will normally have an early repayment charge if you repay or change your mortgage during the initial fixed-rate period.

Some mortgages may have administration charges to consider, including booking, valuation, and conveyancing costs. Not all lenders will charge these, but you may want to look into it before making any commitments. When you apply for a remortgage with us, we’ll make clear all the possible fees you could face at each stage of the remortgage process.

Pros and cons of remortgaging

Like any important decision in life, you should weigh up the pros and cons of remortgaging before making the big commitment.

Frequently Asked Questions

Still unsure whether remortgaging is the right move? We’ve compiled answers to the more common questions we get asked at Norton Finance.

How long are the repayment terms?

Our flexible repayment terms range from 1 to 40 years.

Are there any loan fees?

At Norton Finance, we get our commission from the lender, not the customer. We may charge a broker fee of £995.00 and for customers who require a specialist lender, we will charge a fee of 12.5% of the loan amount capped at a maximum of £4950 for our services.

Do I need a solicitor?

If you’re remortgaging with the same lender, they’ll handle the legal work. However, if you’re switching for a better rate elsewhere or want to release a cash lump sum, a conveyancing solicitor can assist with all the legal paperwork. This is sometimes provided from the lender’s own panel of solicitors.

Do I need a valuation?

You’ll need to get a valuation on your property or know what it is currently worth. This will give you an idea of how much you may be able to borrow and if you could find a better deal elsewhere.

Can I pay off a remortgage early?

You can pay off a remortgage in full at any time during the agreement - but most lenders will charge an Early Repayment Fee if stated in your original mortgage contract. It’s worth considering if these fees will make early repayment worth it.
