Why Fee Saver Range?

Many mortgages come with arrangement & valuation fees. Lenders charge these fees to set up the mortgage on the borrower’s behalf and of course to value the property the customer is looking to remortgage. Low interest rates mean that remortgaging to raise capital is an attractive idea, but high arrangement & valuation fees, in addition to legal costs, can put borrowers off. That’s why Vida Homeloans Fee Saver range includes a free valuation, has no product fee and covers standard legal fees for remortgages to avoid high up-front costs.
