Are you thinking about finding your next home? If so, and you have a mortgage on your current property with HSBC, you may want to think about porting your mortgage when you move.

Porting your mortgage with HSBC: Factors to think about

When you port your mortgage, you stay on your current deal while moving from one property to another. However, it’s vital to know that HSBC is not duty bound to do this.

You should still check, of course, but you’ll be expected to clear the hurdle of a credit check first. Since time has passed since HSBC originally agreed to the mortgage that you’re on now, there may have been changes to your credit record. If you fail the check, they could reject your mortgage porting request.

The outcome of requesting to port your mortgage could also depend on the value of your new home. If you can supply a deposit and not need to borrow any more than the outstanding balance on your mortgage, your chances of porting may be better. However, if you are hoping HSBC might lend you more, this could also affect your chances of success.

Even if you clear all those hurdles, there is nothing in force to say that HSBC must honour the interest rate currently applied to your mortgage. As you can see, there are lots of elements to think about.

Going solo or using a broker from The Mortgage Broker Ltd

There’s nothing to stop you booking an appointment to see someone at HSBC or to call them to find out more about mortgage porting. However, call times may vary and you may be waiting for a while to see or speak with someone. Hardly ideal when everyday life continues, and you’ve got other things to do involving your potential move as well.

If you managed to get through the process with a successful outcome, and HSBC agrees to port your mortgage, there are still various other tasks you’ll need to complete before you can unpack your kettle for a cuppa in your new home.
