Mortgage interest rate transfer

Transfer your current mortgage interest rate to a new home

Looking for a new home?

Are you looking for a new home? Then you will probably also keep a close eye on the current mortgage interest rates of various providers. Interest rates have risen sharply in recent months. Your current interest may still date from the time when interest rates were low. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could finance a new home with that rate? We are happy to explain to you how to transfer mortgage to new home.

Almost all mortgage providers have a mortgage rate transfer scheme. Under certain conditions, this arrangement makes it possible to buy another home at the same interest rate that you now pay. With the current high interest rates in mind, this may result in significant savings on your mortgage costs.

Interest transfer

The mortgage interest transfer scheme can be an attractive option for your new housing plans. But there may be more options in your situation. Our mortgage advisors give you a complete insight into all options, so you know what the best solution for your situation will be.

The conditions

Every lender has its own conditions for transferring your current mortgage interest to another home. At A&H Finance we can tell you immediately what the options are in your situation and with your lender. What are important points to keep in mind? We describe them briefly below.

  • Same lender

    You can only take your current interest rate with you if you stay with the same lender. You and the bank have a ‘contract’ and you want to adjust something to it. Other lenders would of course like to welcome you as a new customer, but at the current (high) interest rate. Our advisors always consider whether your financing can be cheaper elsewhere, but a mortgage transfer arrangement is always agreed with the current mortgage lender.

  • New mortgage application

    In principle, banks treat the application for the mortgage transfer as a new mortgage application. The mortgage interest rate may remain the same, but your current and new home plus your income will all be retested. Appraisals of the homes and a visit to the notary are therefore also part of the process. Our advisors can fully support you in this.

  • Length of fixed-rate period

    The remaining term of your fixed-rate period partly determines the benefit you can achieve with the mortgage transfer. The rules stipulate that you may transfer the interest rate for the duration of the remaining fixed-rate period. The longer this period is, the more advantage you can gain with the low rate. At the end of the fixed-rate period, the bank will set a new rate again. Check with our mortgage advisers whether the fixed-rate period is still long enough to yield benefits.

  • Amount of your current mortgage

    The mortgage transfer scheme only provides for the amount of the current mortgage debt. If you have a larger (more expensive) home in mind, then you will have to take out a separate mortgage for the price difference with your current home. In most cases, you take out this second mortgage with your current lender at a different mortgage interest rate.

Paul was recommended to me by a friend, at the moment when I was already half way in the... buying process, as the previous financial advisor truly did not care about my best interest. Due to the bad experience, I was a little bit anxious to switch an advisor mid way, but Paul impressed me since the first few minutes of our initial intake appointment. Paul is kind, down to Earth, extremely professional, quick to respond or answer any questions, and somehow capable of drawing out many different personalized options within less than an hour; more importantly, he is able to explain things in a non intimidating, concise way. I was able to get an amazing mortgage deal at the time when interest rates were rising quickly. I would recommend Paul to anyone!read more

AH Finance was recommended by a friend who had a pleasant experience with them. My first... contact with them was to find out some basic information about the mortgage, and after finding their service to be trustworthy, I signed a contract. What I liked about AH Finance is that they explain complicated financial terms in an easy-to-understand manner, and throughout the mortgage process, they keep in touch with you at every stage. I can't even imagine how difficult it is to get a mortgage without professional assistance. I received assistance from Alex and Kim, and both of them were very pleasant and responsive people. I will use their service again in the future if I need financial advice.read more

We really liked our experience with AH Finance! Great service, great mortgage advisors... and very pleasant office! Bas van Hoorn is an excellent mortgage advisor. Alongside with the help to choose the right mortgage plan for us, he also helped to choose the right different insurance plans that perfectly fit our conditions. In short, everything was clear, smooth and fast. We can't recommend him and AH Finance enough!read more

In a time where the real estate market in Amsterdam is extremely competitive and quite... stressful, I was offered a 5-star service from the AH Finance team (Bas in particular) who supported me in my search for an advantageous mortgage. The quality of their service - before, during and after the purchase of my new home - has been impeccable and really helpful. A big thanks to the team, and I highly recommend to anyone in search of quality advising!read more

Super experience with Paul from A&H as mortgage advisor.Paul was extremely patient with us because it unfortunately... took us 9 months to find our house (the buying market isn't the easiest at the moment!) and answered all our questions and guided us along the way.Once we found our house, the mortgage application process was very smooth and fast. Paul was always very responsive and professional.Both my partner and I really recommend him for an acquisition with mortgage!read more
