Frequently Asked Questions
No, refinancing won’t always result in repayments that are lower than your current repayments. What it will do is allow you to shop around and find the best rates and lowest repayments for your current situation in your next loan term.
Part of refinancing you’ll often need to deposit your salary into your account. What a lot of people don’t realise is that you can leave all your current direct debits to your power, internet, online subscriptions, gym, church, schooling, etc with your current bank and simply set up a transfer from your new bank to your old one. This way you get the best of both worlds.
We aim to turnaround your application within 2-3 weeks from the time we have obtained required information from you. However, depending on your situation, this can take longer as timings can vary depending on how unique your situation is. Our adviser will inform you of the estimated turnaround at the time of application.
Break fees are very dependent on your situation (i.e. how long you have left on your current fixed terms; and what your fixed interest rate is compared to the current market rate). Your adviser will be able to confirm these fees before proceeding with an application. We often find that break fees can be lower or higher than what our clients expect, so it’s worth having an adviser to look into this for you, and providing other possible solutions to help cover these fees, if any.
This can be due to a variety of internal bank reasons, however we often find that a client’s existing bank can be limited to their own internal costs of funding, and may not be able to offer as competitive rates as other providers at that moment in time.This is where we find our advisers can prove their value and access other lenders to help sharpen interest rates to ensure our clients are getting the best possible, and most competitive interest rates available in the market for their current situation.
There are often conditions that lenders place on any cashbacks received when refinancing. These are often lender specific but could include timeframe commitments where if you were to move to another provider you would be required to return the cashback amount in full or in part. A good mortgage adviser will outline any conditions placed by lenders on cashback options.
Not everyone should refinance but they should shop around and make sure that they are getting the best rates and payment terms for them and their families.
Refinancing can take as little as 2-3 weeks from filling out a form and matching with an adviser through to a new settlement.
Our advisers make this as steamlined as possible. First of all, our advisers can apply to many lenders at the same time on your behalf, so you do not need to be in contact or visit any branch, until you have selected which bank or lender you would like to proceed with.
From this point, it will depend on which lender you have chosen. Some lenders require you to visit them in person, and others can complete all verification and account set up remotely. Our advisers can let you know about this in advance if you require it.
