There are three main mortgage options if you’re moving home: either ‘porting’ your existing mortgage across to a new property; porting your mortgage and borrowing additional funds, or taking out a new mortgage. Here’s what you need to know.
It’s a good idea to start the process of applying for a mortgage as soon as you’ve decided you’re going to move home.
Your starting point should be to think about how much you want to borrow, and what type of mortgage you’d like.
Here at L&C we can help you determine which type of mortgage is right for you, and once you’ve found a property to buy, we will support you through the mortgage application process from start to finish.

You’ll need a few details about your income and outgoings, what size deposit you’re planning to put down, how much you want to borrow and how long you want your mortgage term to be. We’ll then advise you on the best deal for you.

Yes, as long as your lender will allow you to take your fixed rate mortgage to your new property. Most mortgage deals are portable, but you will need to re-apply to ensure you still meet your lender’s criteria.
If you’re porting an existing mortgage to a new property, you can apply to borrow additional funds from your lender. However, bear in mind that you may be on a different mortgage rate for any extra borrowing.
Yes, this is known as porting. In most cases, lenders will allow you to transfer your mortgage to a new property without having to pay any Early Repayment Charges (ERC’s). However, you will have to reapply for your mortgage, so that your lender can be certain that you meet their current affordability criteria.
Comparing mortgages isn’t easy. Sometimes deals look attractive because they have a low initial rate, but you also need to take into account any fees that come with the mortgage deal. We recommend annual cost as the best way to see which mortgage deal offers the best value for the size of mortgage you’re looking to take.
This is how we calculate the annual cost:
By comparing mortgage deals looking at annual cost you can see which one would be cheapest for you taking into account fees as well as the interest rate. The annual cost only applies to the initial deal as its always best to consider switching once the initial deal is over to see if you could save money.
