How long will a remortgage take?
The average remortgage takes 3-4 weeks to conclude after your new mortgage offer has been issued.
Leasehold transactions typically take 2-3 weeks longer due to the information that has to be collected from the freeholder or managing agent.
When do I pay?
Attwells Solicitors will ask you for a payment on account to cover any third-party disbursements such as the cost of your searches or a copy of your title documents.
- Final Search Fee – £20 plus VAT
- Title Search Fee – £20 plus VAT for freeholds or £30 plus VAT for leaseholds
This will be up to £50 unless there are fees payable in advance to your freeholder for any information that we require from them.
Attwells legal fees will only become payable upon successfully completing your re-mortgage.
Land Registry Fees are due and will be payable based upon the purchase price.
