Do I need a solicitor for a remortgage?

Yes, in most cases you will.


If you are remortgaging and switching lender in the process, then you will need a solicitor to complete your remortgage. This is a requirement for all remortgages when changing lender.

If you are renewing a mortgage deal with your existing lender then you will not need to involve a solicitor or conveyancing service.


Important points to note:

Some remortgage deals come with a free legal service if you use the lender’s conveyancer.

If you don’t wish to use the lender conveyancer, or if your remortgage deal does not come with a free legal service, we can provide remortgage legals from our recommended online firm.
