WHAT WE WILL DO - REMORTGAGES+ WHAT WE WILL DO - REMORTGAGES-

Re-mortgaging is the process of either releasing some of the equity in your home, changing your mortgage for a better rate or consolidating your debts. To re-mortgage, you need to end your current mortgage and move to a new one which may involve switching Lenders.

Re-mortgaging involves legal work to secure the interest of your new Lender and usually to discharge any existing securities. It is therefore prudent to have a Solicitor to help you through this process.

You should consult an Independent Financial Advisor (IFA) to obtain information to assist you in finding the best mortgage package to suit your needs and we can recommend an IFA if you need help.

We will:

  • - Take your instructions
  • - Obtain title information from the Land Registry
  • - Obtain a redemption figure from your current lender
  • - Review the mortgage offer
  • - Report to you on the conditions of your mortgage offer
  • - Arrange for you to sign the Mortgage Deed
  • - Agree a completion date for the new mortgage
  • - Request mortgage funds from the new lender
  • - Complete the remortgage
  • - Deal with redeeming your old mortgage
  • - Apply to register the new mortgage at the Land Registry

TRANSFERS OF EQUITY+ TRANSFERS OF EQUITY-

A Transfer of Equity occurs when one or more joint owners of land or property wish to transfer any interest that they may have in the land or property to another co-owner of that property. There are a number of reasons for arranging the Transfer of Equity however the most common occurs on the dissolution of a marriage or when co-habitees decide to live separate and apart. In either case it is advisable to instruct a Solicitor.
