The refinancing process depends largely on the terms and conditions to which your current home loan agreement is subject. If you’re thinking about switching loans, you need to consider the costs of any penalties – if relevant – versus any savings you stand to make.
It also pays to investigate the process before you revise your loan’s terms and conditions or trade one lender for another.
There are several reasons motivating homeowners to refinance. It could be to achieve a lower interest rate or move from a fixed rate to a variable rate loan or vice-versa. It may be that a significant change in your life circumstances or financial situation impacts your ability to meet your mortgage repayments, leaving you no choice but to refinance.
For instance, if you and your partner are expecting a child, you may be planning to take maternity or paternity leave or reduce your work hours therefore accepting a lowered income.
Conversely, you may have just received a promotion or a job change and with it a raise in salary, putting you in the position to increase your monthly repayments with a view to paying off your mortgage faster.
Regardless of your particular situation, it's beneficial to consult a strategic mortgage broker to assist you with the refinance process if need be.
