Many of the best mortgage rates only last for a relatively short period, of time, often two to five years. This is  typical length of time offered on a fixed rate, tracker or discounted mortgage.

When the initial rate period comes to an end, your lender will move you on to its Standard Variable Rate (SVR).

It is likely to be higher than your previous interest rate and higher than other mortgage products available on the market. If so, you want to be ready to remortgage to a more cost effective mortgage.The ideal time period to start looking at alternative rates is three months prior to the end of your mortgage deal.

Remortgaging to a new lender might enable you to raise money for other purposes. But remember to take any fees into account to ensure that it is cheaper compared to other forms of borrowing.

The most commonly acceptable reasons to raise money are for home improvements and paying off other debts. Be prepared for your lender to ask for evidence if you are borrowing a large amount, e.g. builder quotes or proof that you have paid off the debts.
