Remortgage for Debt Consolidation FAQs

What is a debt consolidation mortgage?

Accorion Arrow

This means adding debts such as credit cards and personal loans on to your mortgage with one monthly repayment. With the help of a mortgage advisor, you’ll borrow more on a new mortgage and use the extra to repay these debts.

Often, clients can get stuck between a rock and a hard place making monthly minimum payments on a credit card and not seeing the balance decrease. A remortgage for debt consolidation can help with this.

The amount you can borrow will depend how much equity you have in your property, credit score and your income. Although, a remortgage to consolidate debt is not without its own risks.

How does debt consolidation through remortgaging work?

Accorion Arrow

Typically, we’ll help you make a list of all your outstanding debts and your current mortgage balance. We’ll then use your income to calculate the amount you can borrow on a new mortgage to see if we can raise enough and if it’s affordable.

Your mortgage advisor will run through all your outstanding debts with you in detail, including the length of time left to run and the current/future interest rate that you’re paying. This information will help our team make their recommendation.

For example, it might be best to leave any lower/zero percent interest arrangements, or those that are almost paid off separately to the new mortgage. Your mortgage advisor will do the calculations and highlight any risks.

It’ll then follow the process of regular remortgage, so you’ll require a valuation, a conveyancer and possibly a survey if requested. Your new mortgage will automatically be repaid on your new completion date.

With most mortgage lenders, you’ll have a lump sum of money left over to repay your credit cards and loans as per our recommendation and there will be a condition on the mortgage offer which states you have committed to do so.

With some specialist ones, the new lender will do this on your behalf.

What are the benefits of a debt consolidation mortgage?

Accorion Arrow

The main benefits of a debt consolidation remortgage are that clients like the idea of having more disposable income by having just the one monthly mortgage payment.

Also, peace of mind that at the end of the term, the mortgage (including debts) will be fully repaid.

Usually, the new monthly mortgage payment is much less than the combined debts and old existing mortgage.

Are there any risks associated with debt consolidation through remortgaging?

Accorion Arrow

The risks associated with a debt consolidation remortgage need serious consideration. You’ll be taking unsecured debts in the form of credit cards or loans and securing these against your home, where you live.

Your new mortgage lender holds the first charge as security over home which means in the event of a future repossession they get their monies back before anyone else.

These main risks are paying more interest over the period due to the new mortgage being over a much longer term, and having your home repossessed should you fail to maintain the repayments.

This is different to your unsecured credit where the ownership of your home is not at risk.

Please always seek professional advice from a reputable mortgage advisor when considering a debt consolidation mortgage. Without a mortgage advisor on your side, any mistakes made in this area could be extremely severe and costly.

Your mortgage advisor will carefully consider which debts are best for you to repay and if these are affordable to you.

Will I qualify for a remortgage to repay debts with bad credit?

Accorion Arrow

When considering your application for a remortgage to release equity to repay debts, your income, outgoings, age, credit score, employment type and personal situation will be considered.

If you are concerned about your financial situation, it may be possible to remortgage with bad credit. We’ll be able to look at an up-to-date copy of your credit report to recommend the best way forward.

We work with many mortgage lenders, some more specialist in this area than others.

Nowadays, it’s not unusual for a client to have a blip on their record and want a mortgage with a ccj, low credit score, or a missed payment etc.

How do I calculate the savings or costs of debt consolidation through remortgaging?

Accorion Arrow

Leave this to the mortgage professionals. As part of our remortgage advice service, we’ll do these calculations for you and make an individual recommendation on the best way forward for you.

We’ll need to know the amount you currently owe, the interest rate you are paying and, if it’s a loan, how long there is left to run.

Even if your new mortgage rate is lower than your debts, you’ll be spreading the debts out over more years and you are likely to be paying more interest over the duration of the new mortgage term.

Options such as any overpayments you can make on new current mortgage and selecting a shorter mortgage term can help bring this interest figure down. Your mortgage advisor will run through everything with you to help.

What are the interest rates for remortgaging and how do they compare to my existing debts?

Accorion Arrow

As part of our debt consolidation mortgage service, we’ll find out the amount you currently owe, the interest rate you are paying and, if it’s a loan, how long there is left to run.

Even if your new mortgage rate is lower than your debts, you’ll be spreading the debts out over more years and you are likely to be paying more interest over the duration of the new mortgage term.

Your new mortgage may come with options such as letting you make small overpayments that can help you pay less interest. Your mortgage advisor will run through everything with you to help.

Can I consolidate all types of debt, including credit cards, personal loans, and car loans?

Accorion Arrow

Yes, usually, you’ll be able to consolidate all types of debt including credit cards, store cards, personal loans and any car loans with a remortgage. As mentioned above, speaking to a mortgage broker is important as this might not be the best option.

Often, the new mortgage lender will ask why your debt has built up to an unaffordable amount. Maybe this is due to a separation or divorce, a change in employment type of something else.

What are the fees and costs associated with remortgaging for debt consolidation?

Accorion Arrow

The costs of a remortgage for debt consolidation are usually quite reasonable. Often deals such as free legal services and valuations are available from the main high street lenders.

As part of our free, no-obligation mortgage consultation your mortgage advisor will run through all the costs that are involved.

Will remortgaging to consolidate debts affect my credit score?

Accorion Arrow

Yes, possibly. Your score could go down initially because you are taking out a new commitment (the mortgage) and paying off others ones so your score could bounce around a bit for a while.

The advantage of using a reputable mortgage broker, like us, that knows criteria inside out, is that we aim to keep the number of searches to an absolute minimum.

In time, providing that your mortgage payments are all on time, your score will become normal. No hard credit searches will be performed without your consent.

Can I continue to use my credit cards and accumulate new debt after consolidating?

Accorion Arrow

We wouldn’t recommend this; we’d advise you to lower your limit and/or close your cards to avoid getting yourself into this situation again. Another debt consolidation mortgage might not be possible in the future.

What happens if I can't make my remortgage payments?

Accorion Arrow

A mortgage valuation will be carried out by your new lender as part of the application, quite often this is on a “drive-past” or automated basis rather than a physical inspection of your home.

What is my current mortgage balance? 

Accorion Arrow

Something else to consider when thinking about a debt consolidation remortgage is the balance of your existing mortgage or loan secured against your property.  Our mortgage advisor team will help you with this if you are unsure.

Usually, the longer that you have had your mortgage the more capital you will have repaid. Hopefully, your property will have increased since you purchased it also.

How much equity can I release to consolidate debts?

Main Reasons to Remortgage for Debt Consolidation

Remortgage to Repay Credit Cards

Accordion Arrow

Often, clients feel stuck between a rock and a hard place paying the minimum payment on various high interest credit cards and not seeing the balance come down.

This can prove to be frustrating and feel like you’re stuck in a hole.

Maybe they’ve been switching between zero interest deals for a while and have run out of new companies to use or can’t now qualify for enough limit.

This is probably the most common reason for a remortgage for debt consolidation application with us.

Remortgage to Repay Personal Loans

Accordion Arrow

A debt consolidation remortgage can be used to repay any outstanding personal loans.

Usually, personal loans are a higher interest rate than a mortgage, however, the term is usually 5-7 years approximately.

Unlike with credit cards, you are making repayments with a personal loan so these will be fully repaid at the end of the term.

Therefore, these could be carefully considered as part of your remortgage to consolidate debts options.

Remortgage to Repay Store Cards

Accordion Arrow

As with credit cards above, clients can often get lured into taking out store cards to qualify for deals with their shopping or points etc.

Maybe the store cards have started out being interest free for a period and now they’re at a high rate of interest.

Remortgage to Repay a Car Loan

Accordion Arrow

As with personal loans above, a debt consolidation remortgage can be used to repay your car loan. Often car loans can be restrictive and a high interest rate.

Your mortgage advisor will help you do the maths with this to see whether it’ll be worth consolidating this on to your mortgage or not.

Important Recap of the Risks Associated with a Debt Consolidation Remortgage

Accordion Arrow

A debt consolidation remortgage can be used as part of a financial plan to consolidate the above credit card and loan balances into one monthly payment.

They do not come without risks though and it’s vital that you seek trusted mortgage advice to explore all your options. Please always seek advice from a reputable mortgage advisor with this situation.

Your Home Being Repossessed

Potentially, you could end up in a much worse position here without an expert mortgage advisor on your side.  This could prove extremely costly and result in you homeless should anything go wrong.

If you are using a remortgage for debt consolidation to consolidate unsecured debts such as credit cards and personal loans, these will now become secured on your home.

Your new mortgage lender will hold the first charge over your property until this mortgage is fully repaid.

This means that if you ever defaulted on your mortgage payments, your property could be repossessed by your lender.

Your lender would then sell your property on the open market and use the proceeds to repay what you owe them including any interest.

Your advisor will talk to you about some of the things that could affect your ability to maintain your mortgage payments, such as how could you afford to pay if you went off sick.

Paying More Interest Over the Long Term

A debt consolidation remortgage is usually spread over a longer term than a personal loan therefore the total amount of interest you pay over the length of the new mortgage term will likely be more.

A good mortgage advisor will let you know your options with overpayments and how doing this on a regular basis can significantly reduce the amount of interest you repay.

Getting into Debt Again

It’ll be a condition of your mortgage offer that your agreed debts are repaid, typically by you, following your mortgage completion.

You run the risk of getting everything cleared and making a fresh start, only to be tempted to get into debt again in the future.

Examples include taking out a new car loan, taking out a store card to get an offer etc.

Another debt consolidation may not be possible in the future, the lender will most likely reject any future application based on your conduct with lending.

Following a successful remortgage for debt consolidation completion, certain lifestyle changes should be considered by clients to ensure this doesn’t happen again.
