Can you remortgage to help with credit card debt?

Opting to remortgage to ease credit card debt is an option. You can remortgage to release some of the equity in your home, which can be used to clear the debt that has accrued on your credit cards.

Will consolidating your debt hurt your credit rating?

Most people think consolidating your debt won’t have an impact on your credit rating, however, it does temporarily affect your credit rating. Anytime you apply for a form of credit, your credit score will reduce, so when you initially consolidate your debt your rating will slightly dip.

However, once you have received the cash lump sum and have cleared the debt, your credit score will improve over time due to an absence of outstanding debts.

Remortgaging for debt consolidation – How does this affect my mortgage rate?

Whether remortgaging for debt consolidation impacts your mortgage rate will depend on your personal circumstances.

When is the best time to remortgage to consolidate your debts?

Remortgaging to consolidate debt usually means you have explored most other avenues, as it’s never recommended to take unsecured debt against the security of your home.

We tend only to advise people to remortgage for debt consolidation once all other options have been exhausted, so it’s best to approach the remortgage option as a last resort.

However, if you’re borrowing to pay off short-term debt, we would advise against remortgaging for debt consolidation altogether as when you’re remortgaging, you’re going to be paying back high interest due to its longer term nature.

Secured loan versus remortgaging

If you are looking to consolidate debt, it’s a good idea to weigh up both a secured loan and remortgage as a resolution.

With a secured loan, you take out a loan against your home – it’s easier to be arranged if you have poor credit in the background and they also allow you to borrow more money.

If you have a strong credit rating and are in a good financial position, remortgage may be a better option as the interest rate you pay will be competitive and in line with ‘standard’ mortgage rates.

Is there a limit to the number of times you can remortgage to consolidate debt?

There are no set-in-stone rules to determine the number of times you can remortgage for debt consolidation, however, the more times you do remortgage, the more it’s going to reflect badly on your credit score and lenders will begin to ask questions about the way you manage your finances.

Remortgaging can be a great way to consolidate debt as it frees up your disposable income so you can still focus on other financial commitments you may have, however, it shouldn’t be seen as a regular way to relieve debt troubles.

When should I remortgage for debt consolidation?

It’s important to note that you need to actually own your property and have equity tied up in it that you can release. With adequate ownership and equity at any point in your mortgage process, you can look to remortgage for debt consolidation.
