We understand just how worrying it can be when your current deal is swiftly coming to an end, but it’s important to remember that remortgaging may offer a new opportunity to save money and remain in control of your mortgage. You may even decide to take advantage of a more competitive rate so it becomes cheaper on a monthly basis but want to accelerate your payments with the new lender thus reducing your term.
