Get to know your mortgage
Understanding your mortgage will make it easier when it comes to re-mortgaging and put you a step ahead when speaking to a broker.
What should I know?
- Importantly, know your mortgage account number! This will allow a broker to access information about your mortgage and save time during initial conversations.
- Know who your lender is!
- Find out when your fixed rate ends- this usually will be slightly longer than you think.
- Understand ERC’S (early repayment charges). Check whether your lender charges these on your mortgage.
- What interest rate are you paying? Comparing your current rate and keeping up to date with the Bank of England’s base rate will help you gauge what to expect when you re-mortgage.
Speak to a broker, they are professionals who can help and guide you through the whole process.
