Homeowners often mis-use the expression remortgage when they are simply switching from one product to another with the same lender; this is not a remortgage which involves the removal of one legal charge over a property and its substitution with another in favour of a new lender.
A remortgage is the process of paying off one mortgage with the proceeds from a new mortgage using the same property as security. The process of remortgaging does not usually involve moving home or taking out a second mortgage on the property; it is in effect the transfer of a mortgage from one lender to another. Homeowners may choose to remortgage for various reasons, including to reduce the size of repayments, to pay off a mortgage earlier, to raise capital, or to consolidate other debts.

Is it worth remortgaging?
Homeowners with fixed rate mortgages should get organised well before their rate ends - or potentially find themselves paying hundreds of pounds more than they need to, recent customer experiences show. Banks or building societies may be too busy to remind customers that their rate is up.
The cost of switching mortgages to a new provider, or even moving mortgages with the same one, has shot up in the last couple of years as providers have increased set-up fees considerably, and this can offset the benefits.
You should always work out the total cost (including arrangement, legal and valuation fees, if they apply) and compare it with the repayment savings you can make.
For example, a borrower with a ÃÂ£150,000 mortgage would pay ÃÂ£3,000 a year less in interest by switching from a standard variable rate of 7% to a lower two-year fixed rate of 5%. Even taking a one-off arrangement fee and other costs of ÃÂ£1,200 into account they would still save ÃÂ£1,800 a year.
a) Read the small print. Check that your existing mortgage does not have an exit penalty if you switch. These charges
need to be taken into account when weighing up the advantages of remortgaging.
b) Seek independent advice from a mortgage or a remortgage broker. The internet can be helpful for those who want to do their own research and seek out best buy deals but a broker can also save time and search out top rates.
c) Speak to your existing lender. Tell your lender you are considering remortgaging and ask what deals it can offer. Some banks and building societies will offer good deals to get customers to stay rather than switching away. Retention mortgage products can be good value when the extra costs associated with remortgaging to another lender are taken into account.
d) Fee-free deals may not be as attractive as they first seem. Often with fee-free mortgage offers the fees have simply been costed into the interest rate you pay, so over the term of the deal they may not work out any cheaper. Do your sums before you switch.
Debt consolidation is not always the most suitable option, consolidating debts must be carefully considered. It will usually mean more interest over a longer repayment term and there may also be early repayment penalties on your current mortgage, you should think carefully before securing other debts against your home.
