Switch and save

There are many reasons for remortgaging: you may be forced to swicth to a new deal because you have come to the end of your existing arrangement, because you have moved house, you want to borrow more or simply because you are fed up with your current mortgage lender.

But one of the main reasons why borrowers switch their mortgage is to save money. Your mortgage is likely to be your biggest monhtly financial outlay, so remortgaging to a lower rate could save you a lot of money.
