How long will my remortgage take?

How long it will take from your new mortgage offer being received by us until we are in a position to draw down the mortgage advance will depend on a number of factors. The average process takes between 3-9 weeks.

It can be quicker or slower, depending on the parties in the chain. For example, if your new Lender does not require searches to be carried out and there are no issues with the title to your property it could take 3 weeks. However, if you are mortgaging a leasehold property and your new Lender requires searches, this can take significantly longer, between 6 and 9 weeks. In such, a situation additional charges would apply.

Stages of the process

The precise stages involved in a remortgage vary according to the circumstances. However, the items below summarise the main points:

  • Take your instructions and give you initial advice
  • Receive and advise on new mortgage documents
  • Carry out searches if necessary
  • Obtain further planning documentation if required
  • Make any necessary enquiries if there are title issues
  • Give you advice on all documents and information received
  • Go through conditions of mortgage offer with you
  • Send the new Mortgage deed to you for signature
  • Obtain a redemption figure from your current Lender to repay your existing mortgage (if applicable)
  • Agree completion date (date on which your old mortgage is redeemed and your new mortgage comes into force)
  • Arrange for all monies needed to be received from lender and you and sent to your old Lender and you (if applicable)
  • Deal with application to remove your old mortgage (if applicable) and register your new mortgage at Land Registry

* Our 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;
  • this is the assignment of an existing lease and is not the grant of a new lease;
  • the transaction is concluded in a timely manner and no unforeseen complication arise;
  • all parties to the transaction are co-operative and there is no unreasonable delay from third parties providing documentation;
  • no indemnity policies are required. Additional disbursements may apply if indemnity policies are required.
