It makes good sense to consider remortgaging your property every few years. You could get a better interest rate, special offers or you may want to raise funds by releasing some of the equity in your home. Whilst we don't give advice about which is the best mortgage, we can put you in touch with a specialist advisor to help you find the right product for you.
If you use RMNJ to deal with the legal aspects of your re-mortgage, we will:
- Provide you with a clear statement of the cost of your re-mortgage at the start of your matter
- Deal with the re-mortgage in the fastest possible time to suit you
- Keep you updated by phone, letter, email or fax - whatever suits you best
- Repay your existing mortgage and any other charges secured on the property and register your new mortgage with the Land Registry
- Guarantee that your re-mortgage is dealt with by a dedicated case worker and not a call centre
- Send you any balance money due to you on the day that re-mortgage completes
If your lease is running low on years we can help and represent you on an extension of your lease from the Landlord. This is vital when selling or seeking a mortgage. Whilst each case is different as a general rule you can ask your Landlord to extend the lease by 90 years.
If your lease has less than 80 years left to run the Landlord can charge a premium and as the years approach the expiry date the amount payable increases. It’s advisable to get your lease extended before it falls below 80 years from expiry date.
Transfer of Ownership "Transfer of Equity"
If your circumstances change, you may need to transfer the ownership of your property from one name into joint names or the other way around. The legal term for this process is a transfer of equity. We can guide you through this procedure with minimum fuss and in the fastest possible time.
To deal with your transfer of equity, we will:
- Provide you with a clear statement of the cost of the Transfer as the outset
- Draft the deed which will bring about the change of ownership
- Obtain the consent of your current mortgage lender
- Register the change of ownership with the Land Registry and provide you with copies of the new Title Deeds
