The switching process explained

When you switch your mortgage from your current provider to another lender this is known as remortgaging.


Icon expand Step 1 - Review your current mortgage deal

When you are switching you can choose to change the mortgage term or the amount that you're borrowing. This is a good opportunity to see if you can save on your monthly repayments by choosing a mortgage with a lower interest rate or plan.

Remember, your lender may charge you if you pay off your mortgage before the end of the term. This is called a breakage cost. There may also be a redemption charge or exit fee.

Make sure you've done your research so you know the costs involved and can make an informed decision.

Warning: Your home is at risk if you do not keep up payments on a mortgage or any other loan secured on it.

Warning: You may have to pay charges if you pay off a fixed rate loan early.

Variable Rate Representative Example Assuming a total amount of credit of €100,000 repayable over 20 years at a borrowing rate of 4.3% (variable), the cost per month is €621.90 excluding insurance. The total amount to be repaid is €149,294 which includes a release of security fee of €38. The Annual Percentage Rate of Charge is 4.4% (variable). The additional cost per month of a 1% rise in the rate of interest of such a mortgage is €54.74 and would be payable monthly. The above quotation is for illustrative purposes only.


Fixed Rate Representative Example Assuming a total amount of credit of €100,000 repayable over 20 years, initially on a fixed rate for 3 years at 2.99% and then our Standard Variable Rate  of 4.3% for the remaining 17 years would require 36 monthly payments of €554.10 and 204 monthly payments of €612.48. The total amount payable would be €144,931.52 made up of the loan amount of €100,000 plus interest of €44,893.52 and a security release fee of €38.  The Annual Percentage Rate of Charge is 4.0%.  After the initial fixed rate period ends, an additional 1% rise in our Standard Variable Rate  would give rise to an additional cost at that time of €46.86 monthly.  The above quotation is for illustrative purposes only.
