This is when you switch the mortgage you have on your house from one lender to another without moving home.  You should review your mortgage regularly to make sure it's still the best deal for you and by doing this it can save you a lot of money over your mortgage term.

Change to a lower interest rate

Many borrowers are on their lender’s Standard Variable Rate (SVR), usually because their previous mortgage deal (e.g. fixed rate) has come to an end.  This SVR is fixed by the lender and often reviewed on a monthly basis. It can also often be the most expensive rate of interest charged by the lender. Many mortgage lenders offer lower fixed, tracker or discounted interest rates in order to attract new customers and will often offer a free valuation and legal fees to entice you away from your existing mortgage provider. This can make switching (or remortgaging) to a different lender extremely beneficial to you.

Raise extra money

Homeowners who switch their mortgage to a new lender offering a better deal will benefit from a monthly saving. However, rather than enjoying this additional money you may prefer to borrow additional funds that could be used for a number of things such as; making home improvements, investing in a new property or children’s university fees.

Consolidate your debts

Many homeowners in the UK have used the process of remortgaging to release equity in their property in order to use the money to pay off existing debts. If monthly disposable income is tight then this can often be a sensible way of managing debt.

Change the length of your mortgage term

Due to the length of time that mortgages last it is fairly obvious that your circumstances are likely to change during the term. Some homeowners may want to pay their mortgage off quicker, for example, so that they can retire earlier. If you switch to a lower interest rate, while maintaining the same monthly payment that you have been used to, you could potentially reduce the term of your mortgage by several years. If money is tight, other homeowners may use the opportunity to increase the term of their mortgage in order to reduce their payments further.
