Remortgaging could be easier than you might think – what your next steps are
What is a remortgage?
A remortgage is when you take out another mortgage on your home to replace your current mortgage, or to borrow extra money against your property.
Why would I remortgage a property?
You can raise money by releasing equity in your home and taking out a new mortgage that is larger than your existing one. You could do this to consolidate debts, make home improvements, or fund something else in your life.
You could save money by remortgaging and switching to a cheaper mortgage provider – making your monthly payments smaller each month. You will need to check the terms of your contract though to make sure you aren’t charged any early exit fees.
As your mortgage is likely to be your largest debt, it makes sense that improving on it can also give you the largest saving – a saving that can add up to thousands of pounds each year.
Exactly how much you could save will depend on several factors, including:
- How much equity you have in your property
- What your current deal is like
- Whether there is a fee for ending your current mortgage deal
- Whether your home’s value has increased
- How much your remortgage costs
How we helped one customer by finding a bad credit remortgage:
With Clever Mortgages, Mr and Mrs C were able to:
Get a debt consolidation remortgage, even with a poor credit history Secure a fixed rate of 2.10% Save almost £500 each month on mortgage and debt repayments
|Current Mortgage||£61,000||£490||1.25%||Lifetime tracker||12 Years|
|Current Secured Loan||£43,000||£436||10%||Standard Variable Rate||12 Years|
|New Mortgage||£150,000||£1097.67||2.10%||5 Year Fixed||13 Years|
Mr C had been in an IVA, which he’d now completed, and Mrs C was currently in a Debt Management Plan. They wanted to consolidate their secured loan, plus three other debts, into a new mortgage product – hoping that this would bring down their monthly repayments.
At Clever Mortgages we were pleased to be able to help them, and we secured them a new mortgage which is now saving them a significant £485 every month! This is making a real difference to their lives, and helping them get back on track, improving their credit score.

What are the benefits of remortgaging?
A remortgage is when you take out another mortgage on your home to replace your current mortgage– and we can help you with this, taking all the hassle away from the remortgaging process.
It’s sometimes possible to secure a lower rate, giving you the opportunity to consolidate your debts, whilst saving yourself money every month. Debt consolidation can be a good solution for some mortgage customers – however, it’s not suitable for everyone.
You should always review the total amount payable through consolidation, not just the immediate savings in terms of a reduced monthly payment. Please be aware that any unsecured debts consolidated within the mortgage, would then be secured against your property.
We’ve helped 1000s of customers to remortgage – and bring their monthly payments down.

A debt consolidation mortgage can help you save money every month – we recently helped Mr C who was nearing the end of his fixed rate deal, to consolidate his secured loan and mortgage into one monthly repayment reduce the mortgage term and save money.
Help get you back on track – being able to consolidate Mr C’s secured loan with a mortgage product meant only having to plan for one monthly payment instead of two, making the overall debt much easier to stay on top of.
Reduce the term of your mortgage – we can often help customers cut years off their mortgage – helping them to become mortgage free far sooner than they thought.
Why should I use a mortgage broker?
You’re likely to only have to do one application – this will save you time, and more applications from being recorded on your credit file
Some mortgages especially for people with bad credit are only available if you go through a mortgage broker
Brokers can advise on what would improve your chances – e.g. finding a guarantor or opting for a joint mortgage
They can take the hassle of application forms away – talking you through every step, and asking all the right questions
