Your local remortgage solicitor in Cornwall and Devon
When your situation changes it may be time to remortgage your property. If your income has increased, you may want to pay off your mortgage more quickly, or perhaps you want to switch to a mortgage with a lower interest rate. Maybe you want to borrow more money to pay for improvements to your home. Whatever the reason for your remortgage, you need solicitors who can give you the best advice and the most efficient service.
What is a remortgage?
A remortgage means moving from one mortgage loan to another, usually with a different lender. The process involves paying off your mortgage using the proceeds from your new mortgage. People sometimes ask a mortgage broker to help them to find the best deal, while others prefer to do the research themselves. Either way, you will need an experienced solicitor to handle your remortgage.
Your remortgage solicitor in Cornwall and Devon
Our conveyancing team is based in offices in St Austell, Truro, Falmouth, Newquay, Launceston, Liskeard, Penzance and Holsworthy. That gives us a wealth of local knowledge and means we can provide a personal face-to-face service, in a location near to your work or home.
Because we sit on most of the lenders’ panels we have the advantage, over many other conveyancers, of being able to act for both you and your lender, saving you time and money.
Local connections and expert knowledge
Remortgages are often dealt with in house by large mortgage lending companies. However, choosing a local solicitors firm can make the process smoother. In particular, if your property is in any way unusual, for example if it has mixed residential/commercial use, complicated unregistered titles, or requires dividing into separate parts or transfers between co-owners, our conveyancing solicitors can help where often solicitors tied in through mortgage lenders cannot.

Moving to an equity release mortgage
If you want to remortgage your property to free up some income for retirement, you may be considering an equity release mortgage. Sometimes called lifetime mortgages, equity release mortgages allow homeowners aged 55 and over to tap into the value of their property and access what is often their most valuable asset. An equity release mortgage can make cash available either as a tax-free lump sum or in the form of regular payments, which many use to boost their retirement income.
Coodes Solicitors is the only law firm in Cornwall that is a member of the Equity Release Council, giving you the assurance that the very best equity release advice is right on your doorstep.
