Essential Guide to Remortgaging with Expert Mortgage Advisers

Remortgaging is a financial strategy that homeowners often consider to secure better mortgage terms and release equity in their home. Previously it would have been to secure lower rates and payments but sadly there aren’t a lot of those at this time. In Scotland, our expert mortgage advisers have access to over 90 lenders and 12,000 mortgage products, remortgaging can be an effective way to optimize your financial situation going forward. Here we will guide you through the process of remortgaging through our mortgage team at Indigo, where Scott and Stephen have over 15 years of experience in helping mortgage clients.

**You can review your existing mortgage within 6 months of your current deal expiring.**

The Benefits of Remortgaging

Before we dive into the specifics of remortgaging in Scotland and the UK, it’s essential to understand why homeowners choose to remortgage. Here are some common reasons:

Competitive Interest Rates

sticking with your existing lender may not be the most cost effective option to you. Remortgaging can help you secure a more competitive deal than can be obtained just by sticking with your current lender

Debt Consolidation

Remortgaging can be used to consolidate high-interest debts into a more manageable mortgage, potentially saving you money in interest payments. It is important to speak to our team to understand the pros and cons of doing so before deciding this as the best course of action.

Release Equity

If your home has gained value since you bought it, remortgaging can allow you to release equity, giving you a lump sum of cash to use for home improvements or other financial goals.

Change in Circumstances

Life circumstances change, and you might want to switch from a fixed-rate to a variable-rate mortgage or vice versa to better suit your current needs. You may also be looking at adding or removing a party to your current mortgage.
