Nationwide Remortgage: How to renew your mortgage with the Nationwide Building Society

If you are an existing Nationwide client the best time to get the Nationwide mortgage application underway is 4 months before your tie-in period finishes. This will give you plenty of time in case there are any hold-ups on their services.

When can I remortgage Nationwide?

Nationwide will want evidence of income and will also want to look at your outgoings and debts to check the mortgage is affordable. Your mortgage will be underwritten therefore this can take longer and we would advise you start your remortgage 16 weeks before your existing Nationwide mortgage deal ends.

How do I know when my existing Nationwide deal ends?

There are two places to find the exact date that your existing Nationwide mortgage deal ends. The first place will be on your existing mortgage offer where it should state clearly when your existing deal finishes and when you no longer have an early redemption charge.

The second place you can find when your existing deal ends is on your annual mortgage statement. Again it will have the date that you will no longer be charged an early repayment charge.

How long before my fixed rate ends can I remortgage Nationwide?

If you are an existing mortgage customer of the Nationwide Building Society and asking when can I remortgage with Nationwide. The earliest you can start a Nationwide mortgage renewal is 3 months before your existing deal ends. If your mortgage case is slightly complicated it may be worth seeking advice from a mortgage advisor previous to the 3 months.

Does Nationwide use mortgage affordability calculators?

Nationwide decide on how much they will lend on mortgages by using a mortgage affordability calculator.

All enders use affordability calculators on their mortgages however the amount they lend you can differ therefore if you find that Nationwide is not willing to lend you the amount you need it might be worth finding out what other Banks and Building Societies are willing to lend you and the services they offer.

Does Nationwide have the best Interest rate?

There are over 90 different mortgage lenders in the UK. These banks and building societies offer over 14,000 different interest rates and deals. That’s a lot of mortgages! It might be worth having a shop around as the chance of Nationwide mortgages having the very best interest rate and deal for you is very slim.
