Choosing a remortgage deal
There are many types of remortgages from which to choose and the two most popular choices are:
- Fixed rate remortgage – the interest rate is fixed for a set time period, and when it ends, your lender may switch the interest rate to their standard variable rate which will be set according to the bank of England base rate.
- Tracker remortgage – the interest rate varies according to the bank of England base rate
Repaying your remortgage
In addition to choosing the type of interest rate deal, you may also need to decide which method of repayment is right for you:
- Repayment remortgage – with this type of remortgage deal you make straightforward monthly payments which cover both the remortgage repayments and the interest accumulated each month. This is often seen as a safer repayment option because you are guaranteed to repay your remortgage within the interest rate term set by your lender, as long as you make your payments each month in full.
- Interest Only remortgage – with this type of remortgage, you repay just the interest accrued each month on your remortgage. You will need to pay separate instalments into an ISA or other repayment vehicle in order to repay the whole of your remortgage when the term ends.
Deciding to remortgage can be a complicated process and it makes sense to seek expert advice in order to make sure that remortgaging is the right option for you.
Before deciding on a particular interest rate deal or method of repayment, you may wish to speak to a mortgage advisor or your financial provider before settling on a deal.
