Number of people remortgaging up year on year

According to figures from the BBA, the number of people remortgaging their properties rose by 15.7% year on year to January 2017. BBA claim that the rise in people remortgaging can be attributed to the low interest rates with people taking advantage of the competitive mortgage offers.

This was reported in the Mortgage Introducer during February*.

What this means for home owners

Adam Nanson from Your Mortgage Expert comments:

“With the interest rate remaining low currently, many prudent home owners have been saving money on their monthly mortgage payments by switching to a new deal.

“However, as reported by us in December, there are predictions that the Bank of England might be set to put up interest rates. If this does happen, we could see mortgage rates start to go up for the first time in long time.”

THINK CAREFULLY BEFORE SECURING OTHER DEBTS AGAINST YOUR HOME. YOUR HOME MAY BE REPOSSESSED IF YOU DO NOT KEEP UP REPAYMENTS ON YOUR MORTGAGE. SECURING SHORT TERM DEBTS AGAINST YOUR HOME COULD INCREASE THE TERM OVER WHICH THEY ARE PAID AND THEREFORE INCREASE THE OVERALL AMOUNT PAYABLE. YOU MAY HAVE TO PAY AN EARLY REPAYMENT CHARGE TO YOUR EXISTING LENDER IF YOU REMORTGAGE.
