The number of homes in arrears has fallen to a six-year low and to keep figures heading in that direction, it`s important for homeowners to identify the most suitable remortgage deal for them.
Data from the Bank of England and the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has shown that the amount of properties with outstanding repayments was a little under 265,000 (264,862) in the final three months of 2013, down 5.3 per cent on the same period a year previously.
On top of that, the amount of new cases were below 30,000 (29,208), three per cent fewer than 12 months earlier, while repossessions dropped by 21 per cent to 6,137, as more people kept up with their repayments.
However, it isn`t a time to get complacent, you should be aware of whether or not you can reduce your mortgage payments and how long you have left to go on your current deal. So if you`re coming towards the end of your current term, now could be the time to switch.
There are a number of things to consider when remortgaging, not least the total costs involved in moving from one mortgage and setting up another. Dealing with a mortgage adviser they will help you to take into account any costs that may negate any savings you may make by switching to another product, thereby checking the product is suitable for you.
