It is not always best advice to remortgage. If you are on a very low rate or have early repayment charges that make remortganing more expensive then you should consider a second charge mortgage.

A second charge mortgage is a loan secured on your property which sits behind the first mortgage lender. Second charge mortgage rates will be higher because in the event or repossession they take second place to the main mortgage lender. Second charges can be useful where the first mortgage lender will not lend you additional funds.
