Important to know

To borrow more, you may need an up-to-date valuation of your property. We call this a revaluation. 
There is a £70 fee to pay for revaluations. This is non-refundable.

If you are borrowing more to buy a second home, you may need to speak to a conveyancer. If you want to move home and take your mortgage with you, this is called porting.

You may also need a conveyancer to do a Transfer of Equity. This is when you add or remove someone from a mortgage.
