Application Process

As steps in life go, buying a home is certainly one of the big ones. If you know what’s involved in the mortgage process, you can see it instead as a number of small, easily managed steps. What’s more, you don’t have to take them on your own. We are here to help you, providing as much guidance and advice as you want or need. Every step of the way.

  • Step 1: Find out how much you can borrow & get House-Hunter Approval

    You will need to know what you can afford before you start looking for the right home – our mortgage calculator can give you a good indication.

    We will help you through your mortgage application. If successful, we can give you a “House Hunter” approval if you haven’t found a suitable property – this gives you time to search for your new home. If your application is not successful this time, don’t give up. There may be steps you can take to improve your chances of approval – e.g. a longer savings period or a reduced loan amount. We can talk you through your options.

  • Step 2: Choose a location & find the right home

    Once you’ve found the home that’s right for you, let us know the address and the purchase price.

  • Step 3: Get your Letter of Offer and appoint a solicitor

    We will send a loan offer pack to you and to your solicitor. It will contain your Letter of Offer, the European Standardised Information Sheet (ESIS) with full details of your mortgage and the terms and conditions of your loan.

  • Step 4: Get a property valuation

    We will give you the name of an approved valuer who can carry out a valuation for us before the loan is drawn down. We always recommend that you get a surveyor’s report as well, for your own peace of mind, which can uncover faults that aren’t easy to see. In some cases we may require that you get one, particularly if the house you’re buying is older.

  • Step 5: Arrange Home Insurance & Life Cover

    At this stage, you should arrange the appropriate Life Assurance and Fire Insurance policies to protect both you and the property. These will need to be in place before you can draw down your mortgage. Ask us about our great value Home Insurance and Life Cover1.

  • Step 6: Exchange contracts and pay your deposit

    Your solicitor and the seller’s solicitor will tie up the details.

  • Step 7: Draw down your mortgage

    We will draw down your Mortgage and issue the funds to your solicitor to complete the purchase.

    1You may purchase your Home Insurance / Life cover from another provider if you wish.

Mortgage Documents Checklist

You will need to provide key documents for your mortgage application. Ideally you should bring these documents with you when you meet us. If you are making a joint application, documents will be required for each borrower.
