Top up mortgage
The term ‘top up’ mortgage may refer to the process of remortgaging, with either the same lender or another one to borrow more money by increasing the size of your mortgage.
It’s possible to remortgage a property, with either the current lender or a different one in order to borrow more upon it, providing the borrower has enough necessary equity within the property to do so. Equity is the portion of the property that the borrower owns outright; they could accumulate equity in various ways such as through their monthly remortgage repayments, assuming they are on a capital and interest repayment mortgage. Another way a borrower may have gained equity is if the value of their property has significantly increased in value since they took their mortgage out.
This means that when remortgaging a borrower could take out a larger mortgage to borrow more, essentially trading some of their equity for money. The money generated through remortgaging to raise capital can be used for any means. However, it is important to remember that taking out a larger mortgage will increase the amount of time it takes to pay off a mortgage; it may also increase the size of the monthly mortgage payments. Borrowers should also consider any arrangement fees or exit and early repayment charges they may need to pay in order to remortgage.
There are a wide range of mortgages on the market, so it is wise to shop around to try and find the option that fits your specific needs best as well as offers a competitive deal. You may also want to consider other options than remortgaging; such as for smaller amounts taking out a personal loan, which is a type of borrowing not secured against your property.
Borrowers thinking about remortgaging may benefit from using the services on an independent mortgage adviser, in addition to being able to provide impartial advice, an adviser who offers a whole-of-market service can use their professional knowledge of the industry to search across a selection of mortgages from different providers to try and find the most suitable products for their clients, there are also certain mortgages which are only available through an intermediary.
