We can assist with the placing of a mortgage against your property. It is important to instruct skilled professionals to undertake this process for you. At Hudgell and Partners your matter will be handled by a qualified solicitor. You will be able to contact your conveyancing solicitor directly by phone or by email. As well as being Lexcel accredited (the Law Society’s practice Management standard) Hudgell and Partners also hold the Conveyancing Quality Scheme accreditation. We are on the panels of most high street lenders and the solicitors who will handle your matter have extensive experience in conveyancing and property law.
Our service will include giving advice on the mortgage contract, checking the title of your property and the requirements of your lender, complying with any mortgage conditions, preparing the mortgage deed for signature, where necessary obtaining a redemption figure for any existing mortgage, giving you a detailed mortgage statement, carrying out pre-completion searches, completing the transaction, repaying any existing mortgage, accounting to you with any monies due, registering the new mortgage at the Land Registry and notifying you on completion of the registration.
Our service does not include dealing with any change of names on the title deeds, any second mortgage or any correction to the title deeds or indemnity policy required by your new lender.
