This depends in the main on your new lenders requirements.  If searches are required then this can mean a slight delay whilst search results are awaited, however the majority of lenders will accept search insurance which does speed up the process. 

On average, we would expect a re-mortgage to be completed within 3-4 weeks for a freehold, and within 5-6 weeks for a leasehold.

The prices provided above are a general guide.  Our estimated fee assumes that:

  • this is a standard transaction and that no unforeseen matters arise including for example (but not limited to) a defect in title which requires remedying prior to completion, or the preparation of additional documents ancillary to the main transaction
  • the transaction is concluded in a timely manner and no unforeseen complications arise
  • all parties to the transaction are co-operative and there is no unreasonable delay from third parties in providing documentation
  • no indemnity insurance is required

As each transaction is different we are very happy to discuss your individual situation and provide you with a more precise and personalised quote, so please do get in touch with us.
