How long will my remortgage take?

Typically these types of transactions take 4-6 weeks.

Stages of the process

In order to attend fully to a remortgage title information needs to be obtained and reviewed. The mortgage offer is checked and any special conditions noted. Searches or search insurance is likely to be required and the level of reporting needs to be ascertained.

If the event the transaction needs to tie in with another communication and planning is required to ensure all the Land Registry searches (priority searches reserving the lender’s position ‘in line’ to register a charge against the title) have to line up.  This can be a time consuming and technical process.
