You might need help in reviewing the terms of a facility letter or your existing facility. Your lender might want to sell your loan or they might want you to refinance or remortgage your property. Very often our clients are also seeking to take advantage of lower interest rates, consolidating debt or reducing loan repayments. Here are the main reasons:-

  • Your loan is about to expire or has expired.
  • An existing facility provides for a managed sale of properties over the remainder of the term of the facility.
  • It may be the case that you are being overcharged.
  • A lender is leaving Ireland and you have been given an ultimatum to refinance.
  • Piranha lenders have bought your loan and you need to refinance otherwise that lender will threaten to put them into liquidation, receivership or bankruptcy.
  • Your lender is willing to do a deal if you refinance. This might be a write off or a sale of the loan in exchange for payment and/or various other conditions.

IN FACT, PREPARATION IS KEY TO REFINANCE OR REMORTGAGE YOUR PROPERTY OR ASSETS.

Key to successful refinancing and remortgaging is getting the figures right. You need to figure out what the overall cost is going to be, taking into consideration all of the expenses. Costs will also be incurred when discharging your existing loan. A release fee, legal costs, early repayment fees, interest break costs and more. Of course, these costs can be very high if you have a fixed interest loan.

Also remember that your new lending institution will also have fees. This may incluse an arrangement fee, valuation fee, legal costs, title searches, registration fees and more. They may also insist on you reviewing your insurance, carrying out a survey and/or valuation, getting tax advice and other requirements.
