Remortgaging your ex-council property

If you’ve applied for a new mortgage or to borrow more money, or if you're a lender or solicitor and your client is remortgaging, then the mortgage provider may need information from the council. The remortgage pack includes:

  • current service charge account balance and statement (including ground rent)
  • number of properties currently sold within the block range
  • details of section 146 notices served on the property for non-payment of the service charge and any additional courts fees and interest payable
  • building insurance schedule and policy booklet (leasehold properties only)
  • notice fee
  • landlord’s name and address
  • details of any management company acting on the council’s behalf

If you also need details of planned major works you can view our major works investment programme.
