If you are considering moving home and you have a mortgage, there are a couple of factors for you to contemplate.

As well as the standard mortgage decisions we will guide and advise about, you will need to decide what to do with your existing mortgage.

If you are in a deal with your current mortgage provider, chances are you will have early repayment charges if you pay the loan back.

Your current mortgage may be portable, so you can move home and take the mortgage with you to the new property without having to pay the early repayment charges. You will need to meet your current lenders criteria in terms of affordability and credit in order to port your mortgage.

If your current mortgage is not portable, you will have to pay a penalty to move home if you are in a deal and have early repayment charges.

If you are in a deal without early repayment charges or have fallen on to the lenders standard variable rate you may not need to port your mortgage and may be able to apply for a new mortgage with a new lender.

We will take information about your situation, the early repayment charges payable, your current interest rate etc and advise which route would be best for you based on your personal circumstances.
