I have 2 properties both on interest only.
one have a year left for mortgage maturity.
The other still got two year six months (Rental).
I have been advised to remortgage the rented property to enable me pay off what is left on my residential one.
My question is what will happen to deposit because I have not done this before.
Thank you.

The deposit which was paid at the outset, would form part of the equity in the property as it would have formed part of the purchase price at the time you bought the property.
