There has been an increase in people looking to remortgage their properties, according to new figures.
Enquiries about remortgaging went up by 33 per cent in June, ranking in second place behind those from first-time buyers, Unbiased.co.uk found.
"These latest figures suggest a stirring amongst those thinking about re-mortgaging, after the previous two months drop in re-mortgage enquiries," commented chief executive of the website David Elms.
He said that people are looking for the expertise of someone who can "unravel the confusion of the current mortgage market", which may include enlisting the expertise of a debt management firm.
The Bank of England reported on July 29th that the number of new mortgage approvals had increased for the fifth consecutive month and that total net lending for dwellings increased by 0.3 per cent in June – the same figure as May.
Approvals for house purchase and for remortgaging were higher than in May and above the previous six-month average, the Bank found, as were loans approved for other purchases.
