Re‐mortgage of Freehold / Leasehold Residential Property



How much does this service cost?

No property re-mortgage is the same and so our fees will reflect the particular requirements of your re-mortgage.  The figures quoted below may vary in cases with added complexities, and therefore we cannot give you a fully reliable estimate of the cost of us helping you until we have details of the transaction.  That’s why we’ll always give you an individual cost estimate at the start of the transaction, taking into account the actual details of your re-mortgage.  We will always advise you immediately about any complication; and would fully discuss the potential impact on price before any additional charges are incurred.

We estimate our fees, excluding VAT and disbursements, will be approximately £950 depending upon the amount of work required.  VAT will be charged at 20% on top of all fees, costs and disbursements.

Disbursements are costs related to your matter that are payable to third parties.  We handle the payment of the disbursements on your behalf to ensure a smoother process.
