Change your existing mortgage security

Your mortgage security is the asset (usually one or multiple properties) used to secure your mortgage with St.George. There are many reasons you might be looking to change the way your existing mortgage security is set up. These could include selling your property, discharging all or part of your loan or substituting your security for another property.

Information about changing your existing mortgage security

There are many reasons you might want to make changes to your existing mortgage security, such as a partial discharge or substitution of security.

Partial discharge

A partial discharge is when you have more than one property that is secured by a loan, and you would like to release one of those properties as security, without repaying the full loan.

Substitution of security

If you would like to replace your existing security with another property, you can apply for a substitution of security. This commonly occurs when you are selling your home and would like to retain your existing loan for your next property.
