Common questions about the remortgage process
Do I need a solicitor when remortgaging?
A remortgage conveyancing solicitor is not always needed when remortgaging your property, but this will entirely depend on the circumstances of the case.
If you are remortgaging with your current mortgage lender for a better deal, there is often no requirement for a solicitor. However, where you choose to change your mortgage lender to a new one, a solicitor is required for the process.
Even where you choose to remortgage with the same lender, seeking advice and support from a solicitor is recommended due to the complexity of the process. They can handle all the technical aspects of the remortgaging process.
What does a solicitor do in a remortgage?
A solicitor will help to manage the remortgage process for you, making sure that all of the legal details are properly checked and that you fully understand the terms associated with your new mortgage deal.

How long does a remortgage take with solicitors?
