Product terms and conditions

For fees assisted remortgages, conveyancing is provided to Kent Reliance by Optima Legal.

The legal fees payable to Optima Legal acting on Kent Reliance’s behalf in connection with a remortgage will be paid by Kent Reliance. Please note, Optima Legal will act only upon Kent Reliance’s behalf.

Because this is a remortgage it is unlikely that the borrower will need any work undertaken on their behalf. If they require Optima to undertake additional work they must pay Optima the fee for doing it. Please note - this product is not available if the borrower wishes to use a solicitor other than Optima except that they may ask their own solicitor, at their own cost, to advise them on the terms of the mortgage.

If the legal work for your client’s remortgage involves more than the straightforward standard conveyancing (for example, if your client wishes to carry out a transfer of equity or add/remove parties to the mortgage), your client will be responsible for the legal fees payable to Optima Legal in excess of the standard cost of conveyancing. If additional work is required by Optima your client will be responsible for these fees.

For fees assisted remortgages, the fee for a standard valuation is payable by your client on application and will be refunded by Kent Reliance within 30 days of Completion if (i) the remortgaged property is valued at or below £500,000 by Kent Reliance’s appointed valuer and (ii) the remortgage Completes. If your client wishes to instruct a valuer to carry out a Homebuyer’s valuation report or any more detailed valuation, your client will be responsible for such valuation fees and they will not be refunded.

  • These products are only available on a repayment basis. Interest-only or part repayment/part interest-only may be available only by exception.
  • At the end of any initial deal, the interest rate will revert to the Standard variable rate.
  • The Standard variable rate can vary in line with the general level of interest rates and economic conditions.
  • If your client makes any lump sum payments or repays the loan within a special deal period, an early repayment charge may be payable. Please refer to the early repayment charge section of the table for details. Payments up to a maximum of £499 per month can be made without incurring an early repayment charge.
  • A list of our fees and charges accompanies all Mortgage Illustrations.
  • The minimum mortgage term is 5 years and the maximum is 35 years.
  • The maximum loan size is £3m.
  • Interest is added to the mortgage account for the period from the date the loan is made until the last day of that month. Thereafter, interest is charged monthly on the balance outstanding at the end of the last month. Payments in excess of the required monthly payment will have the effect of reducing the balance outstanding and the amount of interest to be paid.
  • These mortgage products are portable. Even if your client moves home during the initial special deal period of a mortgage, the remaining benefits (up to the outstanding balance of their existing mortgage) of that special deal can be transferred to their new mortgage with us, subject to our lending criteria at the time of any move. In this case, any early repayment charges will not be charged but the existing rate will not apply to any additional funds that your client borrows.
  • All mortgage products are subject to availability of funds and can be withdrawn at any time.
  • ERC percentage based on the remaining capital balance.

For interest-only or part repayment/part-interest only, it is your client's responsibility to ensure they have sufficient funds available at the end of the term with which to repay the loan.

All loans are subject to availability, status, valuation and approval, and are available in England and Wales only. Applicants must be aged 18 or over. Maximum age at the end of the mortgage term is 85. Written quotations are available on request.
