Likely timescale and key stages
A typical straightforward remortgage usually takes 4-6 weeks from receiving your instructions to completion. Of course, it is difficult to confirm at the outset whether your matter will be “straightforward”, there may be complications along the way such as issues with search results, delays caused by your existing or proposed new lender, etc. Whilst we are unable to predict any such delays, communication is key and we will ensure that you are updated at every stage along the way.
Most matters of this nature involve the following key stages:
- We will request a redemption statement from your current lender.
- If searches are required by your new lender, we will arrange for these to be undertaken
- We will review the mortgage deed and if you are happy with the same, we will arrange for signature.
- We will undertake a bankruptcy search
- Completion – Your new lender will forward the mortgage funds to us. We will redeem your existing mortgage and return the balance of the monies to you.
