No matter your situation, we help you

When Should I Seek Advice on Remortgaging?

  • Are you wanting a more competitive rate on your current mortgage?
  • Have you tried to remortgage before and it hasn’t been possible?
  • Do you have debts you’re looking to consolidate?
  • Have your current circumstances changed since your first mortgage was arranged?
  • Has your current mortgage deal come to an end?
  • Are you on your lenders’ standard variable rate and feel like you could potentially pay less?
  • Do you have capital tied up in your home?
No matter your situation, we here at Peak Mortgages would love to be able to help you get the most out of your mortgage.
You may have to pay an early repayment charge to your existing lender if you remortgage.

Suitable product and remortgage

What is the Process for Remortgaging?

We recommend you have a chat with us about 3 to 6 months before your current rate is due to expire. That way we can have a better understanding of the situation as well as leave plenty of time for the transaction to complete before you drop onto a lender’s often high standard variable rate. We will then compare what your existing lender can offer as well as look at other lenders from our extensive panel of lenders. This way we will be able to find the most suitable product and remortgage that will fit your current situation.

Getting the right advice

What are the Benefits of Remortgaging?

  • Remortgaging can allow you to save money by essentially switching to another product that is competitive.
  • It can allow you to utilise your home’s equity for additional cash. Maybe for home improvements.
  • It can allow you the options to consolidate your debts into a single affordable repayment scheme if you are struggling to pay them.

We make it our mission here at Peak Mortgages to make sure that you’re getting the right advice. You can always talk to us about remortgaging your home.

Types of Remortgage Products we Offer

At Peak Mortgages and Protection, we offer a range of remortgage products to suit your individual needs, each with its own advantages. Here’s a detailed look at the different types of remortgage products we provide:

Fixed-Rate Remortgages

With a fixed-rate remortgage, you’ll benefit from a set interest rate for an agreed-upon period, typically two to five years. This means your monthly repayments remain constant, providing stability and predictability, which can be particularly advantageous during times of potential interest rate increases. Additionally, this type of remortgage can offer protection against rising interest rates, allowing you to budget with confidence.

Variable-Rate Remortgages

A variable-rate remortgage, on the other hand, means that your interest rate can fluctuate in line with the lender’s standard variable rate (SVR). While this type of remortgage offers the potential for lower initial rates, it’s important to consider that your monthly repayments can increase if the SVR rises. However, variable-rate remortgages often come with more flexibility, allowing you to make overpayments without incurring early repayment charges.

Tracker Remortgages

Tracker remortgages are directly linked to the Bank of England’s base rate, with your interest rate set at a certain percentage above or below it. This means that your monthly repayments can fluctuate in line with any changes to the base rate. Tracker remortgages can offer transparency and the potential to benefit from any decreases in the base rate, but it’s important to be prepared for potential increases.

How We Can Help

Our expert advisors are here to guide you through the process of selecting the right remortgage product for your specific circumstances. We’ll take the time to understand your financial goals and provide personalised, jargon-free advice to ensure you’re well-informed and confident in your decision. Whether you’re looking to secure a fixed-rate, variable-rate, or tracker remortgage, we’re dedicated to supporting you every step of the way.

Remortgage Eligibility Criteria

We offer remortgage services to a wide range of customers. Here’s a detailed look at the eligibility criteria for our remortgage services:

Existing Homeowners

If you’re an existing homeowner looking to remortgage your property, we can help. Whether you’re looking to secure a better interest rate, release equity, or switch to a different type of mortgage, our expert advisors are here to guide you through the process and help you find the best financing options.

Credit History

Your credit history is an essential factor in determining your eligibility for a remortgage. Lenders will typically review your credit score and credit history to assess your ability to make repayments. However, even if you have a less-than-perfect credit history, we can still help you find remortgage options that suit your needs.

Equity in Your Property

The amount of equity you have in your property can also impact your eligibility for a remortgage. If you have a significant amount of equity, you may be able to access better interest rates and more favourable terms. However, even if you have limited equity, we can still help you find remortgage options that work for you.

Remortgage Application Process

We understand that applying for a remortgage can be a complex process. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you navigate the process, including the required documentation and estimated timelines:

Step 1: Assess Your Needs and Eligibility

Before applying for a remortgage, it’s essential to evaluate your financial situation, including your income, expenses, and existing debt. We’ll help you determine the type of remortgage that best suits your needs and ensure you meet the eligibility criteria.

Step 2: Gather Required Documentation

To apply for a remortgage, you’ll need to provide various documents, such as:

  • Proof of identity (e.g., passport, driver’s licence, or national ID card)
  • Proof of residence (e.g., utility bill, bank statement, or pay stub)
  • Proof of income (e.g., pay stubs, tax returns, or employment contracts)
  • Bank statements
  • Credit report

Step 3: Choose a Remortgage Product

Once you’ve determined the best remortgage product for your needs, we’ll guide you through the application process. We offer a range of remortgage products, including fixed-rate, variable-rate, and tracker mortgages, each with its own advantages and requirements.

Step 4: Submit Your Application

You can submit your remortgage application online, over the phone, or in person. Our expert advisors will handle the paperwork and provide support throughout the process.

Step 5: Review and Approval

After submitting your application, we’ll review it and provide feedback on any additional documentation or information that may be required. If your application is approved, we’ll help you finalise the terms and conditions of your remortgage.

Estimated Timelines

The time it takes to complete the remortgage process can vary depending on the lender and your individual circumstances. Generally, the process can take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months. We’ll keep you informed every step of the way and work to ensure a smooth and efficient process.

What is remortgaging?

Remortgaging refers to the process of switching your existing mortgage to a new one, either with the same lender or a different one. It involves paying off your current mortgage by taking out a new loan, usually with different terms and conditions.

Why should I consider remortgaging?

Remortgaging can be beneficial in several ways. It may allow you to secure a lower interest rate, reduce your monthly mortgage payments, access additional funds for home improvements or debt consolidation, or switch to a more suitable mortgage product to meet your changing financial needs.

I Need remortgage Advice - Can I remortgage if I have bad credit?

Remortgaging with bad credit is possible, but it may be more challenging. Lenders typically consider factors such as your credit score, income, and overall financial situation when assessing mortgage applications. If you have bad credit, get in touch for remortgage advice. Peak Mortgages specialises in assisting individuals with adverse credit to explore available options.

What are the costs associated with remortgaging?

Remortgaging involves various costs, including arrangement fees, legal fees, valuation fees, and potentially early repayment charges if you are still within a fixed-rate period. It’s important to consider these costs when evaluating the potential savings and benefits of remortgaging. Remortgage advise can help you understand the financial implications and compare the overall costs involved.

How long does the remortgaging process take?

The remortgaging process typically takes between four to eight weeks, although it can vary depending on individual circumstances and the complexity of the application. Factors such as property valuation, legal processes, and document verification can influence the timeline. Receiving remortgage advice can help streamline the process and ensure it progresses smoothly.

Do I need a solicitor or conveyancer for remortgaging?

While it is not a legal requirement to have a solicitor or conveyancer for remortgaging, it is highly recommended to engage one. They will handle the legal aspects of the transaction, including property searches, contract reviews, and ensuring that all legal requirements are met. Their expertise ensures a smooth and legally compliant remortgage process.
