Additional borrowing on your mortgage means borrowing more money and increasing the overall size of your mortgage. You might consider doing this for a number of reasons including funding for home improvements, large purchases or debt consolidation. You can choose to take out additional borrowing using any of the following methods:
Remortgaging is when you chose to switch your current mortgage to a new mortgage deal/rate, this can be done with your current lender or a new lender.
You might choose to remortgage if you’re looking for a better deal than with you’re current lender, or if you’re planning to borrow more money using your property as collateral.
The remortgaging process usually takes between 4 and 8 weeks. If you’re considering remortgaging your home but you’re unsure where to start contact an advisor today for free, independent advice.
A further advance involves borrowing more money from your existing mortgage lender. This additional borrowing is typically offered at a different rate than your current mortgage.
Using a further advance for additional borrowing makes sense if you’re looking to fund home improvements or require additional resources towards a property deposit.
Your repayments can be spread long-term, and the interest is usually less than that of a personal loan, however, it’s important to remember that the loan is linked to your property, so should you fail to make repayments you risk forfeiting your property.
