Needing a fast mortgage?

Thursday 06 July 2017 | 02:18 PM

We are often asked how quickly can my mortgage progress.


The speed with which we can arrange a mortgage is very much a team effort. If documents needed as part of the mortgage process are supplied to us in a timely manner, the timeline looks something like the following;


Appointment within 24 hours

We can and do frequently meet within 24 hours. We will meet on an evening, during the day at your home, work or our office and also work weekends – we are able to understand your needs and advise what documents we need.


Product Recommendation within 24 hours

We source across the market to find you the most suitable product for your needs. We act only for you.


Approval in Principle

This is where a lender will credit search you to see if you fit their criteria. We are able to do this as soon as the product recommendation is agreed and takes about 45 minutes.


Mortgage Application

The next step and done as soon as the Approval in Principle is agreed. At this stage we supply the bank with the documents they require – the sooner these are provided to us, the quicker we can action. The valuation is also instructed.


Mortgage Offer

The important piece of paper! We aim to obtain an offer within 14 days.


We are there to handle all of the application and ensure that the process runs smoothly. A good mortgage broker will liaise with all parties, eg bank/building society, estate agent, solicitor etc so that you can relax and wait for the mortgage offer to come through!


Local, face to face, independent mortgage advice can smooth the whole process and we would be delighted to help.
