The Bank of England forecasts inflation hitting 4% this year, as the economy revives in the wake of the pandemic, which could result in a potential base rate rise.

So now could be a good time to remortgage, taking advantage of the range of deals currently available. However, fees may be payable, and homeowners with jobs, a healthy credit rating, and 40% equity in their properties could be the biggest beneficiaries, with some lenders currently offering sub 1% interest rates for those that qualify.

Remortgaging could also provide an opportunity to fund home improvements, perhaps to meet the Government’s green agenda to address climate change: replace a gas boiler, improve insulation, or install an electric car charging point.

You are usually able to review a current fixed rate mortgage six months before the term ends, although exit charges may apply if you choose to complete on a better deal prematurely.

First time buyers and homemovers with a minimum 40% deposit may also be eligible for low-interest mortgages, subject to the same criteria.
