What is a Remortgage?

A remortgage is where you pay off one mortgage and take out another mortgage using the same asset (property) as a security. The main idea behind a remortgage is to get a cheaper/more affordable mortgage repayment or in some cases to release any equity that may be available.

Remortgaging for Debt Settlement

Remortgage can be the cheapest form of borrowing. You can get a loan at much lower rates than would be available in an unsecured loan. It can give a cheaper monthly payment but if paid over a longer period of time it can be much higher.

If using a remortgage to release equity, it is possible to use money raised from the remortgage to settle any outstanding debt. In some cases you may even have money left over from the remortgage after repaying your debts. In other cases there may not be any money left over.

Not enough Equity

If your remorgage cannot release enough money to settle your debts in full it is still possible that your creditors might accept a reduced amount to cover all your debts. It is not uncommon that creditors would reduce the total amount owing and take a lump sum as a settlement of the debt. We have agreed many settlements like this.

Things to think about before remortgaging

Remortgaging is something you need to consider carefully. It’s important to get as much information as possible before you make a decision. Some areas to consider are:

  • What will the new interest rate be?
  • How long do you want the mortgage to last?
  • What will the new monthly payment be?
  • What type of mortgage is best for me, fixed or variable?
  • How much am I going to pay on fees for a remortge?
  • How will this improve my situation?
