Frequently Asked Questions

Questions we are often asked in relation to property financing.

  • How does a solicitor assist with the mortgage process?

    Solicitors play a crucial role in the mortgage process. They advise you on the legal aspects of the mortgage agreement, conduct property searches to ensure no legal issues with the property, manage the transfer of funds, and handle the legal paperwork for property ownership transfer. They ensure the mortgage agreement aligns with your interests and legal requirements, and they act as an intermediary between you and the lending institution. This expertise is critical for smooth, legally sound transactions, protecting you from potential property disputes and financial complications.

  • ----------------------

  • How does a solicitor assist with remortgaging?

    In remortgaging, a solicitor plays an essential role by conducting necessary searches and due diligence, ensuring that the property title is clear, and that no issues will impact the remortgage. They also liaise with both the existing and new lenders to manage the legal paperwork and funds transfer. Your solicitor will review the terms of the new mortgage agreement, ensuring that it is legally sound and in your best interests. Their role safeguards you from potential pitfalls, misunderstandings, or legal complications throughout the remortgaging process.

  • ----------------------

  • Do I need a solicitor when buying investment properties?

    Hiring a solicitor when buying investment properties is highly recommended. A solicitor provides expert legal advice, conducts property searches and due diligence, verifies property ownership, and prepares necessary legal documents. They ensure the transaction adheres to all legal requirements, avoiding potential issues such as title disputes, unpaid taxes, or planning permission problems. They also handle the funds transfer to secure the property. Without a solicitor, you might miss critical legal details, resulting in financial losses or legal complications. The solicitor’s role is to safeguard your investment and ensure a smooth, legally compliant transaction.

  • ----------------------

  • Do I need a solicitor remortgaging?

    Yes, generally speaking, you are required to engage a solicitor for remortgaging in Ireland (other than “top-up” mortgages). Your lender is unlikely to release funds if you have not engaged a solicitor. A solicitor conducts necessary searches, manages the transfer of the mortgage deed from your old lender to the new one, and ensures all legal requirements are met. They also clarify the terms of the new mortgage agreement to protect your interests. Their expertise can prevent potential legal complications and ensure the remortgage process runs smoothly.
