Nationwide Building Society has recently announced a significant enhancement to its remortgage options, offering homeowners greater flexibility and accessibility in refinancing their properties. The building society has raised the maximum loan-to-value (LTV) ratios for like-for-like remortgages. By increasing their remortgage loan to value limits, Nationwide should drive a lot more borrowers to their products and offerings.

Changes To Maximum Remortgage Loan To Value

Under the new adjustments, homeowners opting for like-for-like remortgages can now access up to 95% of their property’s value, showcasing Nationwide’s dedication to providing great solutions for borrowers with different remortgage needs.

What Is A Like-For-Like Remortgage?

Like-for-like remortgages involve switching to a new mortgage deal without increasing the total mortgage amount or borrowing additional funds. For example, if you have £400,000 outstanding on your current mortgage, you will apply to borrow £400,000 for your next mortgage without raising any more capital, but hopefully securing a new more competitive deal and rate.

Nationwide Loan To Value Remortgage Criteria

Nationwide’s loan to value remortgage criteria covers a range of different remortgage scenarios, each designed to cater to the specific requirements of homeowners. Here are the current maximum borrowing limits for each type of remortgage that Nationwide offers:

Remortgage loan to value like-for-like: Up to 95% LTV

So, for example, you could have a property worth £500,000 with a mortgage of £475,000 that you can remortgage on to a better deal with Nationwide.

Remortgage LTV with additional borrowing: Up to 90% LTV

For example, you could have a property worth £500,000 with a £250,000 mortgage and then remortgage with Nationwide up to a maximum of £450,000 (90%).

Remortgage with additional mortgaged properties in the background: Up to 85% LTV

You could own a residential property with a mortgage on it and also own either mortgaged buy-to-lets or a mortgaged second residence and still borrow up to 85% with a remortgage.

Remortgage for debt consolidation or paying off a second charge: Up to 80% LTV

If you have some debts that you want to consolidate, you can potentially remortgage your property up to 80%.

Interest only/part and part: Up to 60% LTV

If you are looking to change your mortgage to interest only or part interest only/part repayment, you can remortgage up to 60% LTV.

What Other Remortgage Benefits Do Nationwide Offer?

In addition to the increased LTV ratios, Nationwide offers lots of other benefits for those opting to remortgage through them. These include a complimentary standard valuation, a choice between free standard legal fees or £500 cashback, day one remortgage service, 90-day product reservations, a 10% overpayment allowance on fixed-rate products, and no early repayment charges (ERCs) on tracker products.
