Remortgage Fees

Property Price Costs ** VAT @ 20% Total
Remortgage of Property £700.00 £140.00 £840.00


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.

Disbursement Cost
Identification Verification fee (including VAT (£2)) (per person) £12.00
Land Registry Search fee £6.00
Land Registry Pre-Completion Search fee £5.00
Electronic Money Transfer fee (including VAT) £36.00
Land Registry fee (mortgage value up to £200,000) £20.00


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 (approximately £110) or search insurance premium (approximately £20 for a property of £200,000) 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.

Who will deal with my matter?

Your matter will be dealt with by either Caroline Thompson who is a Solicitor and the Senior Partner of the practice, or another member of the team.  Caroline has over 20 years post qualification experience within this area of the law and heads and supervises the Department.
