How remortgaging works
There are various steps that need to be completed as part of the remortgaging process:
- Requesting a redemption statement from your current lender
- Remortgage conveyancing checks
- Reviewing the terms of your new mortgage
- Preparing the remortgage completion statement
- Paying off your old mortgage
- Updating the property title and completing forms for the Land Registry
We can help you with your remortgage conveyancing by acting for both you and your new lender, ensuring all of these steps are completed promptly and correctly.
How remortgaging for leasehold property works
If you are remortgaging a leasehold property, the process will differ slightly to a freehold remortgage because some additional checks will be required by your lender which will include:
- The need to check the terms of the lease.
- How the length of time remaining on the lease can impact remortgaging.
- Checking with the freeholder/their managing agent that ground rent and service charges are paid up to date.
- Checking with the freeholder/their managing agent on whether there will be any expected increase in ground rent or service charges.
- Checking that there are no existing disputes between the freeholder and leaseholder
- Providing notice to the freeholder/their managing agent of the new mortgage lender.
- Getting a copy of the buildings insurance policy from the freeholder or their managing agent
It is worth noting that due to the extra work and checks involved, a leasehold remortgage may take a little longer than a standard freehold remortgage would.
How long does remortgaging take?
You can expect a typical standard freehold remortgage to take between four and eight weeks to complete whereas a leasehold remortgage might take a little longer where extra checks will be needed. However, you can help speed up the process by completing and returning the necessary paperwork, promptly.
We will always be honest and straightforward in our advice to help set reasonable expectations about how long your transaction is likely to take to complete, enabling you to make plans, accordingly.
How much does remortgaging cost?
The cost of your remortgage will depend entirely on the complexity of your property, its value, location, whether it is freehold or leasehold and how many searches need to be done.
In addition to our legal fees for the conveyancing work, there will be other fees to pay such as Land Registry fees to update the records and search fees that will be required by your lender such as local authority, drainage and water and environmental searches.

When is the right time to remortgage?
When your existing mortgage deal is coming to an end, remortgaging could be your best way to find a more favourable interest rate and a better deal.
If you remortgage too early you could run the risk of early redemption charges from your lender, leaving it too late means you could automatically transfer onto your lender’s variable rate, making your mortgage repayments leap up.
Getting the timing right to remortgage can be critical in helping you avoid unnecessary costs, saving you money and securing your property, going forward.
Usually, it is best to start looking well in advance, preferably three or four months before your current deal expires.
