Disbursements and provision of Searches
Disbursements are costs related to your matter that are payable to third parties. We handle the payment of the disbursements on your behalf to ensure a smoother process.
Those involved in your re-mortgage include the following:
- Search fees: These fees can vary depending on the area the property is located but often range between £250 and £300. These fees will be subject to VAT.
- Land Registry Application Fees: These are fixed depending on the value of the Property and whether the property is registered or unregistered (these fees are not subject to VAT). There will also be fees for Bankruptcy (£2 plus VAT per individual) and Official Priority Searches (£3 plus VAT per search)
