How does remortgaging work?

As mentioned above, a 'remortgage' is the term given to the process of switching your existing mortgage on your home to a different lender. In simple terms, the new mortgage is used to pay off the existing mortgage, using the same property as security against the loan.

Why remortgage to another lender?

You may be considering a remortgage for any number of reasons, but the most common reason for remortgaging is to take advantage of a better mortgage deal that is available. On our 'Why Remortgage to Newcastle Building Society?' page, we take a look at the main reasons why you may want to remortgage your home, and why you should consider remortgaging to us.

There may be benefits of remortgaging if you can find a deal with a suitable rate and features for you, but it's important that you understand exactly what the remortgage process involves, as well as any reasons why it might not be suitable for you. Take a look at our guide to things to consider when remortgaging, as well as our most frequently asked questions about remortgaging, to get more information on factors such as the cost of remortgaging, how long it will take, and how to apply.

Should you be considering a remortgage in order to borrow more money, such as for home improvements or to make a large purchase, then you may wish to consider additional borrowing on your current mortgage instead of changing mortgage provider. This is called a 'further advance', and is another way of borrowing more money against your home.
