Thank you for looking at our property services. Making the decision to re-mortgage your home can be just as life changing as buying your first property.
A re-mortgage is when you either re-negotiate 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 re-mortgage 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

We work on a fixed fee basis, so you will know exactly how much your re-mortgage is going to cost from the outset.
If during the transaction there are any new development which could lead to an additional cost, we will discuss the change in fees with you at the earliest opportunity and agree a way forward.
For properties valued at £500,001, please contact the office for a quote.
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.
We do not undertake mortgage or tax advice and we would recommend you seek advice from an independent mortgage broker or financial adviser.
We do not carry out valuations on your home, this will be conducted by your new lender.
A typical re-mortgage 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.
With every transaction there are key milestones, which may vary according to individual circumstances. for an example of a typical timescale for a remortgage transaction please click here. These milestones are included as part of the fee.
