Applying for a Mortgage
We’re here to support you with your mortgage application every step of the way.
When you’re ready to apply, you will need to provide the documentation outlined here along with your application. Allow 1-2 weeks to gather all the required documentation. Should you require any help with these documents, our mortgage team will guide you through the process during your appointment and talk you through every step of the paperwork. When we receive your application, we will let you know if any documentation is missing or if we require any further information.
Once the search for your first home is done, and you’ve found the perfect one for you, let us know.
You then need to get your new home valued. Once you submit the valuation, we will issue your Letter of Approval and all the loan information to your solicitor.
You will need to arrange Life Insurance and Home Insurance. We can help you with this or you can obtain a policy from another provider if you prefer
Once you sign the documents with your solicitor they will arrange a completion date with the house seller and we will transfer the funds and you can then collect the keys to your new home
