Common mortgage

As your Mortgage Broker in York, we will start with a Fact Find. During this stage of the process, we will get a better view of your personal and financial situation which will help us when selecting a mortgage deal.

You will then have a credit check performed on you, this step is essential in order to obtain an Agreement in Principle. Once you’ve handed us all of the relevent documentation and a valutation of the property has been completed, a formal mortgage offer can be offered.

Your initial mortgage consultation will take around 30 mins, afterwards, we will try and arrange an Agreement in Principle for you within 24-hours of your consultation. The final step is submitting your application and waiting for a formal mortgage – this can take about three weeks.

As a Mortgage Broker in York, we always recommend trying to have an Agreement in Principle in place prior to viewing properties. An Agreement in Principle could put you in a position that would let you negotiate prices.

Your free initial mortgage consultation will approximately last 30 mins. During the consultation, we will ask you some questions and get a bigger picture of your personal and financial mortgage situation.

After the consultation, your dedicated Mortgage Advisor in York will begin searching for mortgage products, trying to secure you one that’s more competitive than your current rate. Once we find a product for you, it’s up to you whether you want to take the offer or not. If so, we can get the ball rolling and start the mortgage application submission process.

Yes, you can obtain a second mortgage in some cases. Whether it’s for home improvements, debt consolidation, for a Buy to Let or a holiday home, you should know that our Mortgage Advisors in York can help you with this.

When making a deposit on a property, High Street lenders will usually ask for a minimum of a 5% deposit. If you’ve had previous credit problems you may be asked to provide a higher deposit.

You may find it slighter harder to get accepted for a mortgage with previous credit problems, however, it’s not impossible! The difference is that you may be asked to put down a higher deposit than usual, perhaps 10-15% of the property purchase price.

If you manage to submit at least one year’s accounts, you are able to get a mortgage. As a Mortgage Broker in York, we see that a lot of lenders use your salary plus dividend to work out the maximum mortgage amount that you would be able to borrow. We’ve also seen some lenders go off your net profit.

Here are all of the documents that you’ll need to support your mortgage application in York

  • Photographic ID (Driving license, Passport, etc.).
  • Proof of Address (Utility bills, tax bills, credit card statements, etc.).
  • Latest 3 months’ payslips & Latest P60 (employed applicants)
  • Latest 2 years’ tax calculations and corresponding overviews (self-employed applicants)
  • 3 months’ bank statement proving the deposit being built-up with an explanation for any large credits.

Once you obtain an Agreement in Principle, it should last around 30-90 days. This will depend on the lender that you’ve used.

If your Agreement in Principle expires, you can easily renew it by contacting your Mortgage Broker in York or your lender.
