Product Transfer vs Remortgage 

Product Transfer vs Remortgage 

When your current fixed rate deal ends, you’ll be faced with two options: 

  1. Stay with your current lender and choose a new deal. This is known as a product transfer. 
  1. Look for a new mortgage lender altogether. This is known as a remortgage

Why is a product transfer so different to a remortgage? 

A Product Transfer is the hassle-free option out of the two. There is a lot less paperwork and the process is a lot quicker than a full remortgage. It simply is choosing a new deal with the same lender that is available to you at that time.  

Your mortgage adviser will have access to the whole of the market and will be able to give you the best advice possible based on your personal situation. 

Why do people choose to remortgage instead of a simple product transfer? 

Well, there are a lot of reasons why this is the case which all depend on your current situation and the current market. 

One of the main reasons that people choose to remortgage is that another lender is offering a much better deal than their current lender. A product transfer means you are only looking at your current lenders deals, not deals available with other lenders. 

Another big reason a remortgage may be the best option for you is to reduce the term of the mortgage or to raise some equity against your property. Your financial situation may have changed since you last looked at your mortgage, meaning that you could reduce the mortgage term to pay off the mortgage quicker, or raise some equity you have in the property if you are looking to do some refurbishments to the property. 

Your current lender may be offering the best deal on the market, which is where a simple product transfer comes in, as long as you aren’t looking to change anything except the mortgage product. 

It is worth noting that it completely depends on your current situation and the volatility of the market at the time will depend on which option is best for you.
