What is a Remortgage?

Remortgaging basically involves transferring the mortgage on your current property onto another lender, resulting in a new mortgage deal. Conveyancing services come part and parcel with the remortgaging process, as it drastically reduces the chances of miscommunication – Hillfort offers low and consistent conveyancing fees to streamline the process. Call us today if you’re thinking of getting a remortgage on your property.

How can I get a Remortgage?

If you have a valid existing mortgage on a property and you feel the need for a changeover due to a change of circumstances or simply the prospect of getting a better deal, you can apply for a replacement mortgage and we will deal with the legalities to ensure that the legal charge is removed from the title and replaced with your new lender’s charge. Please see our remortgaging conveyancing process below.

The Hillfort Law Firm Process

Our Remortgage Conveyancing Process

Step 1

Initial Consultation

We will take down your details to include your current and proposed lender and provide you with a fixed-fee quote for you to consider.

Step 2

Instructions For Conveyancer

We will send you your letter of engagement and terms of business to complete and return. On receipt, we will start the remortgaging process.

Step 3

Receive Your Mortgage Offer

On receipt of your mortgage offer we will report to you on its terms and conditions and send you a mortgage deed to sign and return. We will also obtain a redemption statement from your current mortgage lender.

Step 4

Order Your Mortgage Advance

With your authority, we will order your mortgage advance (usually within 5 working days) and send your completion statement in readiness for completion.

Step 5

Mortgage Redemption

One of the final steps of the remortgage conveyancing process is redeeming the funds of your original mortgage, which will be based on your current mortgage statement. Any balance due to you will be sent on the day of completion and the charge will be removed from your title and replaced with the new lender’s charge.

    I used this firm to purchase a second property. They were extremely efficient, and quick and updated me every step of the way. I liked that my conveyancer was always available to speak to.

Will definitely use them when it comes to my next sale! Would definitely recommend

    I selected Hillfort Law Firm from a selection of solicitors based on their reviews and reasonable pricing. I was not disappointed.  Contact was by email and telephone calls which were thorough. The best test of an experience is how a company deals with an issue. We were faced with having to navigate around a bank requirement. They were so helpful in solving the problem to everyone's satisfaction. Excellent professional service. Hillfort Law Firm are strongly recommended.

    I recently used Hillfort Law Firm when purchasing a property and could not have been happier with the service received. Initially, I was hesitant to use a firm not local to the property but I really believe that Hillfort and Adam Muldoon in particular made a real difference for quick completion and covering all risks ensuring that the property was a sound purchase. I will definitely use Adam again for any future property sales.

  • James Green

    I have used Hillfort Law Firm on several occasions, and they have proved to be very reliable. The conveyancing for my most recent property has been very challenging due to the lease, freeholder and management company. Hillfort Law has been very professional and helpful in communication with the various third parties. I wouldn’t hesitate to use them for any future conveyancing requirements.

  • Ann Baker

    Was recommended to Hillfort Law Firm by my estate agent and I was not in any way disappointed. One of the first solicitors that have rung me back when they said they would, kept me informed every step of the way, was on top of the necessary steps needed to sell my old and buy my new house and genuinely looked after my interests. On top of this Adam was a pleasure to speak to. I don't intend to move again but without a doubt would go to Hillfort for legal advice.

    Remortgage Conveyancing FAQs

    How long does remortgage conveyancing take?

    We can process a remortgage in a week or two once we are in receipt of the mortgage offer and your signed documents. This projected timeframe gives us enough space to complete all necessary checks and calculations before we complete your transaction.

    Do I need a conveyancer for remortgaging?

    A legal professional may not be required if you are only borrowing more money on your mortgage from your existing lender. However, if transference to a new lender is the plan, then it is widely accepted that legal advice should be sought out for all conveyancing matters, including for remortgaging. Compared to somebody with less legal experience, a qualified lawyer can efficiently arrange all the legal checks in a fraction of the time. That does not mean that you have to accumulate disproportionate expenses for the service; aim for a firm that charges fair, fixed legal fees.

    How much does remortgaging conveyancing cost?

    Our fixed prices for remortgage conveyancing services vary depending on a number of factors, including the number of checks, the condition of your property and the type of remortgage deal you are planning to apply for. Get in touch with us today for a more accurate quote or simply fill out our quote calculator form on our website.

    Is there a Transfer of Equity in the remortgaging process?

    It depends. A Transfer of Equity may intertwine with remortgage conveyancing if a new lender is being added, as this constitutes a legal change of ownership. As with other conveyancing processes, a property lawyer can make amendments to all documentation, including title deeds, and ensure a full Transfer of Equity takes place.

    What are the fees for remortgage conveyancing?

    Our remortgage conveyancing service carries similar fees to our other home conveyancing packages. These include fees for identity confirmation, Anti-Money Laundering checks, bankruptcy reviews, property fraud checks, general searches and more. Any fees we charge will be fixed and transparent, with no hidden costs tucked away.
