Disbursements are costs related to your matter that are payable to third parties, such as broker’s commission. We handle the payment of disbursements on your behalf to ensure a smoother process.  Also, your new lender may require searches to be undertaken or for search insurance to be obtained.

These disbursements vary from lender to lender and broker to broker. We will notify you of these once we are informed.

You will need to add the searches expense or search insurance premium and broker commission figure to the estimated total price which will provide an estimated total figure that you will need to complete the re-mortgage.
