Home Moving Mortgages: Stress-Free Solutions

There are many reasons you might want to move into a new home, you need more space, you are looking for a new challenge, or you need to relocate. Regardless of the reason, moving home can be an expensive and stressful time for anyone.

But what happens to your mortgage when you move, and what are your options?

Expert Advice for Moving Home Mortgages

In the first instance, when it comes to moving house, you need to know exactly what you currently owe on your mortgage before looking at your options. This will give you a clear idea of how much you may need to borrow if anything, any equity in your home, and better rates when looking at your options for moving home.

At Prestige Mortgage Solutions, we are experts in negotiating the right deal. If you need a mortgage advisor in Glasgow, we are on hand to help navigate the landscape when it comes to finding the right mortgage deal for you.

Moving Home Mortgages – What Are Your Options?

In the first instance, you should get expert mortgage advice to discuss your needs and requirements when moving home. This will allow you to remove the stress from finding the right mortgage deal and will enable you to weigh up your options with all the facts to hand.

If your mortgage is portable, you might be able to move your mortgage to your new property. This is called porting. If your new home is of a similar value, porting your mortgage may be the solution as you can avoid any additional fees, higher interest rates and valuation fees, to name a few. You will still need to apply for your mortgage, and if you need to increase your borrowing, your lender will require you to take out a new mortgage to cover the difference.

Other options include remortgaging with your current lender or a new lender. However, doing so could mean paying moving house fees and early settlement fees depending on your mortgage lender and the time you have left on your current deal. Typically these moving fees or early exit fees are between 1-5% of the total value of your mortgage.

Remortgages are popular with people looking to move home when house prices have risen considerably in their area.
