Free basic legal fees and standard valuation costs are also available for remortgage customers.

Halifax Intermediaries head Ian Wilson says: “The costs involved in buying, moving home or remortgaging can be significant, during what can be a stressful time. With our latest cashback offer we’re looking to help borrowers with some of these costs.”
