Background

Remortgages

Remortgaging your property is very similar to taking out your initial mortgage – you need expert advice from experienced conveyancing lawyers who understand the process and who will take the pressure and jargon away.

There are many reasons for choosing to remortgage, including:

  • you want to take advantage of a fixed-rate offer that will save you money
  • your income has risen and you want to pay off your mortgage faster
  • you want to borrow additional funds to pay for home improvements
  • a change in interest rates means your ability to pay your current mortgage has changed
  • moving to an equity-release mortgage to free up capital in later life

Whatever the reason for your remortgage, our award-wining team of residential property experts can give you the best advice and the most efficient service.

What is a remortgage?

In simple terms, remortgaging means moving from one mortgage loan to another, often with a different lender, and paying off your old mortgage using the sum from your new mortgage.

Many people use a mortgage broker to find them the best deal available, perhaps seeking to take advantage of a discounted fixed rate period to save them money while others prefer to do the research themselves. Once you’ve found a mortgage that’s right for you, you should speak to an experienced solicitor about the remortgage process.

Specialist remortgage advice from local experts

Remortgages are often dealt with in-house by large mortgage-lending companies. Many lenders will offer to handle the legal side of remortgaging for you and very often this works out well. However, you should be aware that the legal advisors they use are acting for them – the lender – and not you, so if there are any problems in the future you may not have any borrower’s protection.

Choosing your own, local remortgaging solicitors will ensure that you have the necessary protections. This is especially important if your property is in any way unusual, for example if it has mixed residential and commercial use, complicated unregistered titles, requires dividing into separate parts, or transfers between co-owners. In such cases, our experienced conveyancing lawyers can help you, while mortgage lenders’ legal advisers may not.
