What is a remortgage?

The process of remortgaging is simpler than the process for buying a new home because the deeds of the property are already registered in your name.

If you own a property that has a mortgage on it and you want to change your lender or borrow more money against it, or if you already own a property outright and want to borrow money against it, you’ll need to remortgage your property.

You might also remortgage if you are looking for a better deal on your current mortgage, or your circumstances have changed.

Do I need a solicitor to remortgage?

If you are changing lenders then a solicitor will be required to register the new lender and remove interest of the original lender from the property.

How will Graysons handle the remortgaging process for me?

We’ll do a lot of work behind the scenes to make sure that your remortgage goes smoothly, but the main tasks will include:

  • requesting the title deeds and mortgage redemption statement from your existing lender
  • checking the mortgage offer from your new lender and obtaining searches if required
  • checking the property meets the lending criteria for your new lender
  • agreeing everything with you and arranging a completion date

When will completion take place?

Completion will take place once we’ve obtained funds from your lender (or new lender if you are moving to a better deal) and paid off your existing outstanding mortgage. We’ll also register the new mortgage at the Land Registry and send you a copy of the same once we have received the completed registration back.

Can I remortgage on a buy-to-let property?

Yes, but only certain lenders offer remortgaging deals on buy-to-let properties.

Do I remortgage to buy another house?

Not usually. You’d normally ‘port’ your existing mortgage to your new house, or you’d get a ‘home mover’ mortgage, which is essentially a new mortgage after you’ve paid off your existing one with the proceeds of your house sale.

Can I remortgage for debt consolidation?

Yes, but it’s often not the cheapest way of paying off debts. While the interest rate may be cheaper than a loan, a longer term (say, 20 years instead of five) may increase the amount of interest you ultimately repay.
