So property owners should have a chance to reduce what they pay each month on their mortgage, whether a homeowner or owning a buy to let property. If you have a property which is either on a standard variable rate (i.e. typically above 3 or 4%) why would you not consider reducing that cost per month, if you could? As a typical example, a repayment mortgage of £150,000 which sits on a 4% interest rate costs over 25 years term – £800 per month. If you could reduce that (loan to value dependent) – to 2% per month, the monthly payment is £640 per month – that is £1,940 over a 12 months saved.
Affect on APRC and overall cost of mortgage not included, and fees can apply from the mortgage lender, plus legal works required and it must be said that not everyone has the income to support a remortgage but you will never know without full affordability checks.

You must keep up payments on your mortgage otherwise your home may be repossessed.
