We are helping a significant number of customers refinance their existing borrowing to capitalize on lower interest rates. Remortgaging can save homeowners and property investors large sums of money, yet it is not always the first place where homeowners will look when reviewing their finances. Remortgaging might not be suitable for everyone, but it’s essential to look at your options and know the amount of interest you’re paying.
Speak to a mortgage advisor like ourselves about any changes in your circumstances; it could end up saving you money. One of the concerns homeowners have is remortgaging fees, but these pale in comparison to the amount you can save overall. For example, largemortgageloans.com has helped clients save as much as £40,000 through remortgaging.
The process of remortgaging is surprisingly straightforward. When international profiles are added to the mix, there are many threads to the negotiating process, which can become convoluted. Therefore, access to a niche lending circle is paramount to agreeing on preferential terms.
Our client sought to remortgage a buy to let (BTL) property in our latest case study. Borrowing costs attached to buy-to-let mortgage rates are still historically low, which aid returns for landlords.
Our client was interested in remortgaging their £3m London BTL property as a straight swap. The clients had an outstanding £1m to repay in total, enabling them to achieve a low loan to value, covered mainly by the rental income. The couple was paying a relatively high mortgage repayment to their existing lender monthly and consulted us to see whether we could achieve preferential interest rates for them.
Our relationship with lenders meant negotiating terms and offering our clients a significantly lower interest rate for a two-year fixed rate. The clients were delighted to more than half their mortgage interest payments. As the lender’s costs were low, the monthly saving meant that the costs were recouped within three months. The new deal ended up saving the client over £40,000 across two years. The client was astounded at the new arrangement, and having the mortgage process handled quickly and smoothly by our advisors was the jewel in the crown.
