    Equity release or no? 30th Nov 17 at 12:25 PM
    Morning all,

    Looking for some advice. I've got a residential mortgage with a 'permission to let' on it. I moved in with my partner but now looking to remortgage it to a Buy-to-Let and keep it that way for the long term. If I remortgage now I'll have to pay a 3% early repayment fee which equates to about 3K

    But technically I don't really need the money just yet so I was going to just put it in an ISA or bond for a year.

    Is it worth taking the equity out now to secure a lower interest rate or wait a year to get off the 3.2% fixed I'm on I'm but save myself from paying the early repayment fee?

    If you don't need the money then don't do it. Doubtful you will recover the 3k outfall on the ERC in that time.
