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.

Firstly, we will assess your application and carry out the relevant credit checks. Once this is complete, we will arrange for your property to be valued to keep your valuation up to date.
We will also contact your solicitor to request your title deeds and details of the freeholder if the property is leasehold.

Once you've successfully gone through the valuation and relevant credit checks, you will receive a formal offer in writing.
Remember to complete the instructions in the letter and return to us as requested. You should also keep a copy for yourself.
Your solicitor could manage this process for you, including ensuring your existing mortgage provider is repaid in full.
