Estimated time frame

The average time is approx. 8 weeks. The time period to complete a transaction depends on a range of factors which can include:

  • Search’s: if there is a delay in optioning any search or if a search result shows something unexpected
  • If there is a delay in your mortgage offer being issued, the offer is incorrect or if a particular issue needs to be reported to the mortgage company
  • If there is a Management Company involved

We endeavour to keep you posted on the matter and will therefore keep you updated on any revised time period following our initial meeting.

Costs

For a remortgage we offer a fixed fee. Our costs are broken down into legal costs and disbursements. Disbursements are third party costs, such as costs for any searches, land registry fees etc. The disbursements vary from case to case. We handle the payment of the disbursement on your behalf to ensure a smoother process.

Therefore, at the outset of the matter we will advise you of the fixed fee together with a breakdown of all disbursements, we will send you our terms and conditions so that we’re completely transparent at every step. Our quotes will give a breakdown of all charges and will then have a total figure, which is inclusive of VAT.

 

The average legal cost for a remortgage of a home is £300 plus vat. This figure may be higher if the transactions is complex.
