Why should I switch my mortgage?

Your mortgage is probably the biggest financial commitment you will ever make, therefore it makes sense to know if you are getting the best deal possible on your repayments. By switching to a reduced rate you could save yourself thousands of euros over the life of your mortgage. The team at Smart Mortgages can review your current mortgage, taking into consideration any changes in your personal circumstances since you first took the mortgage out, and advise you as to whether we think you should switch. Our advice to you is free. We can take you through each step of the switching process, completing the majority of the paperwork for you. We will also communicate with the mortgage providers on your behalf until your switch is complete. The switching process usually takes about six weeks.
