Suffering from bad credit can cause problems when looking to remortgage your property. The number of lenders who will consider a remortgage if you suffer from adverse credit diminishes as the level of damage to your credit file increases.
Searching for a remortgage product on your own can be a long and arduous task, even if you have a perfect credit history. There are thousands of remortgage products on the market today and dozens of lenders who will consider problem cases.
There are two main sources of information that can help you find the right remortgage product for your situation – independent mortgage brokers and the internet.
Searching for a remortgage product online is a good place to start. There you can begin to sort out who the main remortgage lenders are and how much they charge in fees. You will also be able to begin research interest rates and other terms and conditions of problem remortgage products.
If you find a remortgage product that appears to suit your needs you can either obtain a quote online or contact the lender by phone. If you fill out a form online to request a quote on a remortgage, you should bear in mind that the lender may automatically search your credit file.
The alternative to going it alone is to employ the services of an independent mortgage broker. An experienced broker will be able to match your individual needs to the most suitable remortgage product on the market in a relatively short space of time.
Independent mortgage brokers advise on the whole of the remortgage market. They also have software that will scan the entire range of remortgage products in order to find the product most suitable for your circumstances.
Whilst you may incur an additional fee by using a mortgage broker, they often have access to remortgage products that are not available on the open market. These exclusive offers may have discounted interest rates, or other incentives, and could save you money.
If you are looking to remortgage your property you should begin your search online, and if you find a remortgage product that interests you, decide whether to apply yourself or use the services of a broker.
If you do not wish to find your way through the remortgage maze by yourself, contact an independent mortgage advisor for expert and impartial advice.
