I have a mortgage: What should I do?

Start by checking your current interest rate and seeing if there are lower rates on offer for the same mortgage type. Then check if your lender is planning on cutting your rate any time soon.

If it isn't and there are better offers available, it's time to think about switching lenders. You could save a significant amount of money.
