How does our free mortgage consultation in Oldham work?

During your free mortgage consultation, your dedicated Mortgage Advisor in Oldham will get information from you regarding your personal and financial mortgage situation. They will try to get an in-depth understanding of your mortgage needs so that they can try and find the perfect mortgage product for you.

How does the mortgage process in Oldham actually work?

The first step is for you to fill out our Fact Find so that we can get an idea of your current personal and financial situation. This information will be passed over to your own dedicated Mortgage Advisor in Oldham, who will be in touch to schedule your free mortgage consultation. During this meeting, your advisor will learn a little more about you so that they can pick out a mortgage deal tailored to you.

After your consultation, a credit check will be carried out on you in order for you to obtain an Agreement in Principle (AIP). If everything is okay and you are happy to proceed, we will get some documents from you to back up your application.

With your AIP, submitted evidential documentation and a perfect mortgage offer that you’re happy to continue with, you can move onto the last stage – mortgage application submission!

When should I get my Agreement in Principle in Oldham?

Having an Agreement in Principle in place prior to viewing houses in Oldham, may boost your chances of your offer being accepted.
