If you already own an existing property, you may wish to consider a Remortgage. Whether this is to is switch to a better deal or simply to release funds to pay for various home improvements, or other purposes. Whatever your reason to remortgage, the Conveyancing processes involved with your remortgage, are very much the same legal processes required to secure your original mortgage.
With a remortgage, it is important that the process is arranged quickly, especially if funds are required for a specific project. Our Conveyancing team will deal with the legal requirements as quickly as possible, while ensuring our first priority is always to protect your legal position.
If you are considering releasing some of the equity in your home, our Conveyancing team will guide you through the various issues surrounding equity release schemes. It is crucial to ensure the rights to your property are not compromised by the scheme you are considering and that the scheme is appropriate to your circumstances. Ideally you should also check that the scheme belongs to the Safe Home Income Plans (SHIP) Code of Practice.
You may also need to consider the impact on arrangements made in your Will and how the plan affects your inheritance tax situation. We can explain the benefits and potential problems of these arrangements and how they affect your estate.
The definition of a buy to let property is a type of property investment, in which you become a landlord and you rent out the property for profit. With a buy to let mortgage, the loan is secured against the property. Like any form of investment, there's a lot to consider before you can make the jump (and hopefully start making some money) and it is vital that you take expert legal advice.
Our Conveyancing team will guide you through the process and your legal responsibilities, and we are also able to help you draw up tenancy agreements, help with tenant disputes and termination of leases (including “Notices to quit”).
