Helping you remortgage your home
You may want to remortgage your property to ensure a better deal is obtained from a new mortgage lender, or you may want to free up some equity in your property. At Nelsons, we have one of the largest teams of conveyancing solicitors in the East Midlands, providing specialist advice to hundreds of families in Derby, Leicester and Nottingham to remortgage their homes every year.
As soon as you have decided that you want to remortgage your property:
- Contact us to give us details of you and your property.
- You can get an instant, comprehensive cost estimate for remortgaging from our online conveyancing fees calculator.
- Tell your mortgage broker/mortgage lender that we are the solicitors acting for you and give them our contact details.
We will then send you:
- A quotation together with our terms and conditions and an instruction form to collect important details of you and the transaction.
- We will need proof of your identity (under Money Laundering legislation) or you can give us the approval to do identity verification checks.
The next steps are then:
- To get started, we will obtain the Land Registry Official Copy entries or the title deeds to the property. We will carry out the necessary investigations and checks on the property required by the new mortgage lender. We will also be liaising with your current mortgage provider to obtain a settlement figure for the redemption of your current mortgage,
- We will require a formal copy of the mortgage offer. This will be reviewed to ensure that all the conditions can be met.
- We may need to carry out a Local Authority search, drainage and water search, environmental and flood search and, where necessary, a mining search or obtain search indemnity insurance, in satisfaction of your lender’s mortgage conditions.
