Leaving your mortgage with one lender for the lifetime of the loan is one of the most common ways that people in the UK cost themselves financially.
By not regularly reviewing your rate and deal you will often find yourself on a less attractive rate than you would otherwise be able to find in the open market. For example, you may take out a fixed rate mortgage deal only for interest rates to drop significantly, which means that you will be paying a higher rate than you could be with a better deal. Remortgaging to a more competitive rate in these circumstances is the obvious thing to do. You might also be looking to remortgage to release some of the equity tied up in your property or because you are about to move home and want to make sure you explore all the options open to you.
It is definitely a fact that in the current economic climate most lenders are being a lot more selective about who they lend to and how much they lend, but our specialist remortgage experts here at Stonehill Financial can help you find the good deals that are still out there.
