Steps involved in remortgage

If you are confused with the steps involved in remortgage, then the following post in which I have tried to summarize the entire remortgage process in five steps will certainly help you.
  1. Choose a mortgage lender who provides a better rate than the existing mortgage lender.
  2. The new lender will perform an evaluation on the property and decides whether he can lend on the property.
  3. You have to submit a written application to both the new lender as well as the old lender requesting for a change of dealers.
  4. A group of solicitors will carry out the conveyancing work. A report will be send by the solicitors to the new lender.
  5. Then the new lender releases the mortgage funds and the solicitors makes sure that the old lender is properly repaid.

Less Loan-to-Value rate

The economic crisis has made the mortgage lenders to decrease the loan-to-value{LTV} rate. Last year, there were several lenders who were offeringa LTV of 125 percent. But not, I could hardly find lenders who offer 95% LTV. This is really a bad news for the people of the Western countries who have either lost their job or business as a result of the ongoing economic crisis.

Experts believe that the LTV will remain something around 80% for the next 12 months. And if things go out well, the LTV will touch three figures once again within 24 months. It is a well known fact that the lenders have strictened their policies and it is pretty difficult to find mortgage lenders.

Found a Lender who is ready to help me

As, I have mentioned, I was finding it difficult to find a bad credit remortgage lender. After weeks of searching, I have found a new lender who is ready to help me. He didn't agree to me intially, but after hours of conversation, he has accepted to pay the amount in the existing loan to old mortgage provider.

The best thing about the new lender is that the remortgage interest rate is 3% less than the old remortgage interest rate. I am sure that remortgage is the only way to lower my repayments. Calculation suggest that I can save around 20,000 Euros every year from the new lender. My home equity has also increased by 40,000 Euros.

The only thing that worries me is that if I have found the lender before two weeks, then I wouldn't have sold my car. But now, my car is gone.
