Can I port my mortgage to a new property in Newcastle?

Mortgage Advice for Porting a Mortgage Newcastle

Generally you’ll find that the majority high street mortgages are portable. What this means is that you will have the ability to move it from one property to another, without incurring any kind of penalty.

Portable mortgages are especially useful if you are looking to move into a new home and are currently engaged in a contract with a fixed rate, as it can allow you to potentially avoid any early repayment charges that otherwise would have occurred.

Are all mortgages portable?

Whilst it’s true that a lot of mortgages available to customers are portable, this doesn’t apply to every mortgage. Some specialist lenders for example, won’t allow this to happen. Getting in touch with and speaking to your mortgage lender for a quick discussion can give you some confirmation on this.

Should I port my mortgage?

Even though more often than not it will be there as an option, in lots of cases, homeowners may simply choose not to. Perhaps the lender isn’t willing to lend them the necessary additional funds needed to move home.

It’s important to know as well, that the additional funds will be on a different rate to the rate that your existing mortgage deal is currently on. Depending on the deal that your lender offers you, it may even be more beneficial to you to take on those early repayment charges, rather than staying where you are.

What is a Sub Account?

A sub-account on your mortgage is created at the point where you decide to port your mortgage, with the additional funds being placed onto a different deal than the one you have on your current mortgage.

This means that although you have only technically have a single mortgage and a single direct debit in your name, there are different rates of interest that will apply to each.

Further into the future, having sub-accounts can be known to cause a bit of grief. The reason for this, is because different products will eventually overlap one another. Working to get them aligned once again could mean that one of the sub-accounts has to fall onto the lenders standard variable rate for a particular amount of time.
