Like other businesses, mortgage lenders need to be on the lookout for new customers. To attract them, lenders may offer very attractive rates for a limited period of time. These are called introductory rates. In the UK these generally last from two to five years. After the introductory period has ended, the mortgage will continue on the lender’s standard variable rate (SVR). So when you are looking to remortgage you have three options stay on the SVR, remortgage with the existing lender or remortgage with a new lender.

Although there is potential to make healthy savings, it’s worth remembering that there are costs involved in remortgaging; As you are essentially taking out a whole new mortgage; You will be looking at paying the same sort of fees as you did when you first brought your house; Unless you get a fee-less mortgage. Your home will also need to be revalued and there will be legal paperwork to be processed. There is also a possibility that your existing lender will charge an exit fee (to close off your old mortgage) and there may also be an early repayment charge. This is basically a fee to compensate the lender for your decision to exit the mortgage early. Some lenders may offer to pay these fees but this can result in a higher rate. Staying on the SVR makes sense if the cost of setting up a new mortgage outweighs the savings.
