What happens when my fixed rate mortgage ends?
May 11, 2023
When your fixed-rate mortgage ends, you will need to either renew your mortgage, refinance it, or pay off the outstanding balance.
If you choose to renew your mortgage, you will have the opportunity to negotiate a new interest rate and terms with your lender. You can either renew your mortgage with your current lender or look for a new lender who may offer more favorable terms. Before renewing your mortgage, it is important to shop around to ensure you are getting the best deal possible.
Alternatively, you can choose to refinance your mortgage, which involves taking out a new mortgage to pay off the existing one. This can be a good option if you want to lower your monthly payments, change the term of your mortgage, or access the equity in your home. Refinancing can also allow you to switch from a fixed-rate mortgage to a variable-rate mortgage or vice versa.
If you choose either renew or refinancing, it’s best to seek advice to help you understand the full range of remortgages available to you.
If you are unable or choose renew or refinance your mortgage, you will need to pay off the outstanding balance of your mortgage in full. This can be done by using your savings or selling your home.
It’s important to note that you will likely receive a letter from your lender a few months before your fixed-rate mortgage term ends to let you know what your options are and to provide you with information about the renewal or refinancing process.
