What's the offer?

We'll pay the legal and valuation costs on a standard remortgage (up to £190). The valuation fee is negotiable for properties valued in excess of £1 million.

What's a standard remortgage?

A standard remortgage is when you're not moving home but want to move your mortgage to us from another lender. To get free valuation and legal fees the following must take place:

  • Ulster Bank must select a solicitor to act on your behalf

  • Ulster Bank must instruct a "drive-by" valuation or a standard valuation depending on the Loan to Value of your property. If you want to have a Homebuyers report or a Structural report you can do so at your own expense


This offer is not valid for the following situations:

  • A property where Ulster Bank already hold the mortgage. We have a 'switcher' process for customers wishing to switch from one type of ulster Bank mortgage to another, please contact us.

  • A property which you do not currently own, or one owned by a limited company or trust.

Get an Agreement in Principle

What is an Agreement in Principle?

It is an important step in applying for a mortgage. It gives an indication of whether we could lend you the amount you need to borrow. We use a soft credit check to do this, which has no impact on your credit file.

When you speak with a customer adviser, either on the phone or in your local branch we could let you know within 10 minutes if we could lend to you. We will just need some details of your income and commitments from you to help with our decision.

Mortgage guide Other costs to consider

Building's Insurance - For any mortgage you have to have buildings insurance. You may be offered it from your mortgage provider but it can pay to shop around to find the best policy for you. If your property is leasehold and you pay a management or maintenance fee, check to see if you’re already covered.

Solicitor's fees - for the legal work involved in buying your new home (and selling your current home if you have one)

Stamp duty - this is the tax you pay when you buy a property

Valuation fees - if your mortgage lender charges to value your new home

Survey charges - if you decide to get a structural surveyor to check your new home for defects and problems before you go ahead

Moving costs - if you want to hire a van, use a removal firm or store your things for a while

Estate agent's fees - are paid by the seller rather than the buyer
