What is the process of applying for a mortgage in Nottingham?

The first thing you will need to do is to make an appointment with a mortgage broker. To make an appointment at our Carlton office, give us a call to arrange a time and date that suits you. We also offer video and telephone appointments too. During the appointment we will go over your options and which best suits your financial situation.

Prepare your documents in advance and bring them along to the appointment. This will include…

  • Up to six months of bank statements
  • Proof of ID
  • Details of your employment
  • Details of existing credit commitments


After assessing your circumstances, you might want to get a 'decision in principle' which is also referred to as an agreement in principle or AIP. This involves a lender agreeing - in principle - to give you a mortgage, involving an affordability and credit check. Your broker will be able to provide you with a certificate to say how much you can borrow which an estate agent will often ask for if you put an offer forward on a property.

If you are at the stage of having your offer on a property accepted you can then make a formal mortgage application. If you have chosen us as your broker, we can arrange this for you and help you through the process all the way through to completion.

If you live in the Nottingham area and want to get started with your mortgage application, contact us or give us a call so we can arrange an appointment.
