Why do I need a remortgage solicitor?

When remortgaging a property, you’ll need legal help from a remortgage solicitor so they can transfer your current mortgage to your new lender. However if you’re staying with the same lender, you don’t require conveyancing services.

If you’re transferring equity, approaching the end of your deal or releasing equity, then you’ll need to hire a remortgage solicitor. They’ll have the legal experience and expertise to take care of the legal side of your remortgage.

It’s important to note that you must check with your chosen solicitor that they’re on your new mortgage lender’s panel of solicitors or you could face additional fees.
