    What is Remortgaging for UK Properties?

    Many of our customers who already have a house that they have lived in for a few years, at some stage come back to us because they’re looking to move home. They might be looking to change area due to a new job, or maybe they need more family space as they are having a(nother) child and their current home appears to be bulging at the seams!


    Some customers are a little confused about what to do. They may ask ‘can we buy another house when we already have a house’. Well, the answer is of course ‘yes’, but there are so many options. As it is unlikely that you’ll be a cash buyer after just one home. You already have a mortgage, so you will need to change this mortgage. Your current mortgage may be fixed already, but this doesn’t mean it can’t be changed quite cost-effectively with a remortgage with same lender.

    Where can I get a remortgage?

    So who does residential remortgages? Banks that offer remortgage services include NatWest, HSBC, Bank of Scotland, Barclays, Halifax, Lloyds, RBS and Santander. To search for the best deals for remortgage, you can also approach mortgage brokers and specialist lenders which provide remortgaging options. If you require remortgaging finance, usually your current lender is best placed to assist. Whilst these loans are fairly straightforward, you will still need to discuss your situation directly with your bank and set out exactly what’s being offered in a deal. If your lender does not offer a remortgaging option, perhaps because you currently have a self-employed remortgage or shared ownership remortgage, you may need to find a new lender.

      Help to buy remortgage services


      If you need help to buy remortgage, there’s something call ‘porting’ which I will explain. Say you have a property with a fixed mortgage with, say for example, Royal Bank of Scotland. Porting is where you can take your existing mortgage and remortgage with same lender for the new property without paying any penalty. So that’s a great option for you to get into a larger house or to change your home.


      Can I remortgage my current home to buy another property?

      The short answer is ‘yes’. Purchasing a second home is seen by many people as a sound way to invest their money in the long term. Despite the extra fees and taxes imposed by the government on those buying second properties – either for another residence or as a buy-to-let property, it can represent a reliable investment.


      How does remortgaging work?

      As house prices rise and you begin to pay down your mortgage, so your equity increases. This provides an investment opportunity for you. By releasing some of this equity you can remortgage to put funds either towards home improvements or buying another property.


      There are several benefits to doing this. If you live in a stable property market and are interested in buying a rental property, it may make sense to use the equity in your primary home towards the down payment on an investment property.


      Can I get a second mortgage to buy another house?

      How easy are UK residential remortgages? And when can you remortgage? Remortgaging your current home can free up some of the value within it to deliver a cash lump sum. This can be a very effective way of obtaining finance for the advance payment on another house or apartment. So if you’re planning to buy another house or flat then it is quite possible to apply for a second mortgage.


      You can have two mortgages running at the same time as long as you can afford to repay the monthly instalments on each of them. Additional borrowing will entail higher monthly financial commitments. The lender will want to be sure you can afford the higher remortgage payments out of your income alone. If you fail to pay the mortgage, you could lose your main home as well as the second one.


      How much equity do I need to buy a second home?

      To qualify to buy a second home with no deposit you need to have a minimum of 20% equity in your existing property, so ideally, owe under 80% of your existing property value.


      Can I remortgage my house if I own it outright?

      If you have no mortgage on your home (known as an unencumbered property), you own 100% of the equity. You are in a strong position to apply for a mortgage on your home but will need to make a case for the remortgage and you will need to meet the criteria for the new mortgage.


      Can I remortgage my house to pay off debt?

      You can take out a remortgage for debt consolidation (or a secured personal loan) to pay off your various debts. This will bring them together under one repayment plan with your mortgage provider, where the interest rate could be more favourable than with other lines of credit. By remortgaging your home, you can release the equity that’s resting in your property in a lump sum and use this to repay your other debts. It might reduce your monthly mortgage payment, freeing up money to repay your other debts. But do be careful, the total credit charges in the long term may be higher than your current short-term arrangements.


      Can I remortgage my house to improve my home?

      After a few years, you may reach a point where you would like to make improvements or alterations to your home. This might be anything from a complete redecoration through to new windows, re-roofing, a modernised kitchen or bathroom, loft conversion or an extension of one room or more to accommodate a larger family.


      Whatever you might like to do, these home improvements will both improve the look and help add value to your property. Raising finance through remortgaging can be the most efficient, and often least-expensive, option to obtain the money for home improvement work.
