“If you are looking for this type of mortgage product we could help you!”
There are many reasons why a client may wish to re-mortgage the most popular one being when they come to the end of a current product and have the choice of going onto the standard variable rate or consider a re-mortgage to take advantage of the current market conditions to secure more attractive terms.In today’s market in 2019 where we still have the uncertainty of how or whether we leave the EU, most clients are taking advantage of the current low interest rates we are enjoying and taking a long term fixed rate between 5 and 10 years to secure a low repayment for the future.
You can re-mortgage for any legal purpose and most clients take advantage of raising additional funds to consolidate short term debts on credit cards or loans. Home improvements is another very popular reason to borrow additional funds to improve your lifestyle.
We are also seeing clients raising additional funds to enable them to purchase a holiday/ retirement home or an investment property ( Buy To Let or HMO ). Which is becoming very attractive.
So clients do have an excellent opportunity to review their financial position in today’s very competitive market with interest rates and terms still being shaved to retain their market share, do not miss this wonderful opportunity to secure a great product on brilliant terms.

A remortgage is changing your mortgage without moving your home. Remortgaging is the process of switching your mortgage to another lender that is offering a better deal than your current lender thereby saving money. A remortgage can also be used to raise additional finances by releasing equity in your property.
When you remortgage you are ending your old mortgage deal and switching to a new one. This normally involves switching your lender although you can sometimes change deals with your current provider. If you do remortgage with your current lender it normally involves changing your existing deal. Remortgaging can allow you to get a better rate of interest and reduce your monthly mortgage payments. A remortgage allows you to consolidate existing loans to one manageable monthly payment or raise money to buy a new car or home improvements. You will potentially pay more interest by consolidating if the loan is increased and the term is extended.
Homeowners who want to raise money for home improvements, buying a car or other purposes often find that a remortgage to raise the money is cheaper than taking out a personal loan or using credit cards. This is because interest rates on mortgages are amongst the lowest of all the different types of loans. Remortgaging is a better option then credit cards, avoid incurring any further debt and see just how much you can save by switching your mortgage lender.

Can I re-mortgage with bad credit, and is it my only option ?
The answer to this question is indeed yes! You can re-mortgage with bad credit and with 50 years of financial experience, we are expert in doing just that!
Over the years we have helped clients re-mortgage, despite having a poor credit history or a low credit score, defaults, CCJ’s, IVA’s, repossessions, bankruptcy or have been placed on any form of debt management plan.
As an independent mortgage broker, we specialise in the more challenging area of the mortgage market. Our expertise in bankruptcy and insolvency proceedings including IVA and Fast Track Voluntary Arrangements, have resulted in us successfully getting mortgages for hundreds of clients with bad credit. We specialise in mortgages for discharged bankrupts, bad credit mortgages and re-mortgaging with bad credit.
There are a number of reasons why you may need to re-mortgage. Some instances include; to consolidate debt, to take advantage of a more competitive rate, to raise capital to purchase something, such as a second property, car or wedding, to buy out an ex-partner after a marital split or to raise money to invest.
Going to a high street bank isn’t an option in these situations. They will be quick to run a credit check on you with no doubt at all that you will be declined, yet this credit check will have a negative effect on your already poor credit score so this needs to be avoided at all costs.
Using an independent mortgage broker is to your advantage here. We know specialist lenders who will look at individual circumstances and the reasons behind the poor credit or bankruptcy before making a decision, rather than a standard points scored on an automated system.
What you should also consider, ‘Is a re-mortgage my only option if I wish to raise funds for a given purpose?’ Thankfully no it is not. If your current mortgage is with a high street lender on standard lending terms, arranged before you got into financial difficulties, re-mortgaging with another lender on terms that reflect your current bad credit profile, may not be the best option, and you may also have an exit penalty to pay. A secured loan on the property maybe a far better option, as you will only pay the increased terms on the additional borrowing, not on the whole of the mortgage.
The underwriting guidelines for second charge lending appears to be far more flexible than for a normal residential mortgage, and the process is very quick, allowing you to raise funds within a two to three week window, to address your financial problems. Going forward, once you have repaired your credit issues, you will have the option in about 12 months time, of either taking out the loan with a new product on improved terms, or a remortgage to consolidate all of your borrowing
Apart from your credibility, and the proven ability to service the debt, one of the major factors that will affect the decision to lend or not, is the loan to value (LTV ). The more equity that you have in your property, the better. (the open market value minus any secured loans or mortgages ). Lenders feel far more comfortable with a large chunk of equity in the property, which gives them the comfort factor that should things go wrong in the future, they are protected and should get their money back. Nearly all of the Specialist lenders will not lend above 85% LTV, which gives you an indication of the attitude to risk. You will also note that with a low loan to value, the terms of the product are always more attractive.
Affordability is always taken into consideration by lenders, who have to be comfortable that you can afford the repayments. Gone are the days when lenders based the amount that you can borrow on X times your income. You will normally be asked to provide your last three months bank statements, which tend to reflect your current lifestyle, so it would be a very good idea to look at your spending three months before you want to apply for a mortgage, so we paint the best picture.
We are here to help and advise you, and we will look at all of your options and discuss them with you, whether it is a re-mortgage or a secured loan, and when you may be able to look at other options in the future.
