Remortgaging

 

Making the decision to remortgage your home can be just as life changing as buying your first property.

A remortgage is when you either renegotiate with your current lender or change the mortgage on your property to a new lender. It is important to speak to a mortgage adviser who can go through the options with you and make sure you get the right deal for what you want to achieve.

 

There are many reasons you may wish to remortgage such as:

  • To reduce the interest rate on your mortgage
  • To fix your monthly payments and protect against possible future rate rises
  • To raise money to carry out home improvements
  • To raise a cash lump sum by releasing equity from your home
  • Change in personal circumstances such as a marriage or divorce
  • To consolidate your debts

Disbursements

 

Disbursements are costs related to your matter that are payable to third parties, such as Land Registry fees. We handle the payment of the disbursements on your behalf to ensure a smoother process.

 

Exclusions

 

We do not undertake mortgage or tax advice and we would recommend you seek advice from an independent mortgage broker or financial adviser.

Time Scales

 

A typical remortgage takes between 6 and 8 weeks, however it can be longer if there are any complications such as an application being rejected. The process may also take longer if you switch lenders compared with getting a new deal with your current mortgage company.
