Because we own part of your home too, you'll need our approval to any changes to your mortgage or lender.
And your new mortgage company will also need our permission to proceed.
We don't normally have any objections to a remortgage or further advance on a shared ownership property. However, prior to approving, we'll need some information from you:
- Your new mortgage offer, showing the current value of your home and the exact amount being borrowed.
- Redemption statement on your existing mortgage.
You'll need to request this from your current lender. This will normally include your current mortgage balance, outstanding interest and any early repayment charges (if applicable).
- Confirmation of what the remortgage is for.
This could be for a better mortgage rate, because you've come to the end of your current mortgage term or for home improvements. If it's for home improvements, alterations or additions to your home, you must obtain our written permission before starting the work. Find out more about making improvements to your home.
