Remortgage to renovate

Remortgage for home improvements

Should you pick a remortgage or a further advance?

If you are thinking about remortgaging to renovate, we can help you with two types of mortgage lending.

Here, we go through these two financial options:

  • Remortgage to Renovate

If you are not locked into a fixed term deal, or you are coming to the end of your fixed term, this is a popular option.

For example, if your current mortgage is £150,000. And you’ve costed that your extension will cost you £30,000. You could apply for additional borrowing, and take out a new mortgage for £180,000. You can then use £30,000 on the extension.

Adding the cost of home improvements to your mortgage can be cheaper than other forms of finance such as taking out a personal loan or using a credit card.

It is worth remembering that borrowing additional money on a new mortgage deal is a long-term commitment. And you’ll repay this money back over the full term of the mortgage – including interest.

We can advise you whether lenders are likely to lend you more money and whether you will get a better rate if you stay with your current mortgage company or switch to a new lender.

If you already have reasonable interest rates or want to stay with your current mortgage provider, you can apply to them to borrow more money. Your Mortgage Broker can also help arrange this type of mortgage borrowing. How much additional money you can borrow will depend on how much of your mortgage you’ve paid off, or whether your home has risen in value.

It’s important to note that the interest rate could be different on the additional amount borrowed, and as with remortgaging, it will be secured against your home.

If you want to talk through either of these options for remortgaging for home improvements, then please get in touch. You may also find it useful to read our Guide to Remortgaging to Renovate.

Key points to remember

Important things to remember

Here are some things it’s worth you considering:

  • If you’re increasing your financial commitments, it’s always important to first assess whether you can afford it. And your broker will take the time to go through this with you
  • You need to remember that you will be borrowing more money against your home. Added to that, you’ll probably be paying more interest and your monthly payments will increase.
  • Will you need to pay an Early Payment Charge (ERC) to your existing lender? If you do, this needs to be factored into the overall costs.
  • There might be some other costs or fees associated with remortgaging.

We will do all the sums and make sure you understand all of the costs involved with your additional borrowing.
