Covid 19 Status

In line with HM Government requirements to fight the spread of Covid-19 we have measures in place to ensure that we protect our staff, their families and the wider community, but also to ensure that there is minimal disruption to our customers.

Your access to online Multi Agency Credit Reports, Expert Help and Account Management remains unaffected. We take great pride in the support that we provide to our customers and throughout this period will do all we can to minimise the impact on our services. While the country remains in lockdown we will continue to support your queries via a dedicated and experienced team that will be securely working from home, and supported by a Management Team that will continue to be based at our head office and who will be able to provide customer support as required.

The security measures that we have in place to protect your Personal Data, in line with our Privacy Policy, will mean that some elements of our personalised support are affected during this period as our support team will be working with anonymised data when working remotely. Freephone access to our Credit Analysts has been removed during this period while we focus our efforts on continuing to reply to all of your emails and secure messages within one working day.

Thanks for your understanding, and we hope to have full customer support available as soon as possible and wish you well during these challenging times.

Deed Release Fee

What is a Deed Release Fee?

A Deed Release Fee (also referred to as a mortgage completion fee, redemption administration fee or discharge fee) is an administration fee charged by mortgage lenders once a mortgage has been repaid to cover the legal costs involved with returning the title deed to you.

The fee is charged when you end your mortgage contract before the specified term with your lender. This can happen for one of several reasons. It could be that you have switched to a more competitive deal with another lender when a fixed rate comes to an end, or if you pay off your mortgage some other way, either by over-paying or with a windfall lump sum.


Q: Is it the same as an Early Repayment Penalty?

A: No, this fee comes in addition to an Early Repayment Penalty if there is one to be paid.

Q: How much can I expect to pay?

A: The final cost can typically range anywhere from £50-300 depending on your mortgage provider.
