  • Remortgage To Renovate

    Remortgage to renovate

    Your new project doesn’t have to break the bank! Many homeowners are choosing to remortgage to fund their home renovation projects. This may only cost an extra £150 a month in monthly repayments, depending on how big your project is and your individual financial circumstances.

  • Add value to your home

    Not only will your renovation or extension give you a bit of extra breathing space, but it may also add value to your home. If you decide to move home further down the line, you can rest assured you’ll have a bit more equity to play with.

FAQs

We’ve put together our most frequently asked questions below. If there’s something on your mind that we haven’t covered, please get in touch.

What is a remortgage?

A remortgage is when you switch your existing mortgage to another lender.

How do I remortgage?

You can remortgage with a bank, building society or specialist mortgage lender. Mortgage advisers have access to thousands of products and lenders and will be able to advise you on the right mortgage deal for you.

How much can I borrow?

This will all depend on the amount of equity and deposit you have, as well as your individual circumstances. If you speak to one of our advisers, they'll be able to work with you to see how much you’re able to borrow.

Will I be credit checked?

Yes, you will be. Your credit score is still very important when remortgaging as you’re effectively applying for a new mortgage. In a nutshell, the better your credit rating, the more options you’ll have!

If your score is fair or low, you should speak to a mortgage adviser who can provide you with guidance on how to improve it. In the meantime, our article on how to improve your credit score might help.
