One potential reason for remortgaging is to take out additional borrowing on a mortgage to consolidate debt. At Clever Mortgages, we’re experts in helping customers find the right remortgage solution, based on their individual situation, alongside the goals they wish to achieve.
In this guide we focus on a customer who wanted to take out additional borrowing on mortgage to help consolidate their debts. We’ll cover:
- How we helped our customer with getting a mortgage product that allowed
additional borrowing – so that he could consolidate debt, and just have one
manageable monthly payment
- Getting him a lower rate on his mortgage, and one that was far better than that on his secured loan, meaning what he had to pay out each month was significantly reduced
- How we consolidated his loans with his additional borrowing on the mortgage, to make his payments more manageable
Additional borrowing on mortgage
With Clever Mortgages, we were able to help Mr P with:
- Bringing down his mortgage rate – we found a mortgage with a trusted lender that reduced his mortgage rate
- Consolidating his other debts within his mortgage – meaning his monthly overall repayments were £512 lower
- Keeping his mortgage term the same – Mr P was able to achieve all this whilst keeping his mortgage term at 22 years. Meaning the £512 per month saving made no difference to the term at all
|Previous Mortgage||£95,279||£526||2.53%||22 years|
|Previous Secured Loan||£43,470||£472||8%||15 Years|
|Previous Unsecured Loan||£5,828||£164||3 Years|
|New Mortgage||£147,079||£650||1.45%||22 Years|
Our client came to with the aim of consolidating his mortgage with a secured loan he was paying for each month (with an 8% interest rate). At Clever Mortgages our experts always look at each case individually, with the aim of finding the best solution – and achieving each customer’s goals.
We were delighted to be able to take the hassle away from the remortgage process for Mr P: He just had to tell us some details about himself and his financial situation, and discuss the goals he had for his remortgage. We were able to find him a low fixed rate of 1.45%, making a real impact to his monthly repayments: lowering them from £1,162 to £650 – meaning his saving was an impressive £512 each month!
