Are remortgage rates higher?

Remortgage rates are not normally higher than home moving or purchase rates. They are comparable so no real difference. It is worth noting that it is normally cheaper to remortgage to another lender or even stay with the same lender to switch your existing deal onto a new rate. A mortgage broker can advise you what your best option is when remortgaging. On the rare occasion it is not financially viable to switch deals so just don’t touch your current mortgage
