Higher Lending Charge

Should your mortgage be a high percentage of the property’s value, lenders may charge a fee.

Your lender invests this fee in insurance, in order to protect them in case they repossess your property and sell your home for less than the amount outstanding on your mortgage.

Please be aware that this insurance does not protect you. If there is a shortfall after the sale of your property, you will still be responsible.

Valuation and Survey Fees

You can choose a Basic Valuation report, Homebuyers report or a Building Survey previously known as a full structural survey. We’ll let you know the cost you need to pay depending on your charge. We recommend you obtain quotes from various removal firms prior to making your decision.
