How does the process work in Leeds?

As a committed Mortgage Broker in Leeds, we will carry out a Fact Find to establish your personal needs before we go ahead with advising the most suitable mortgage for your circumstances. From there, you will be credit checked, which is a requirement to obtain an Agreement in Principle. Once you have provided all the relevant documentation and a valuation of the property has been undertaken, you can be issued a formal mortgage offer. 

How does the free initial mortgage consultation work?

Your free mortgage consultation with a Mortgage Advisor in Leeds will last around one hour. Once they have evaluated your circumstances, they will advise a mortgage with no obligation for you to proceed. Based on the deal, you can determine whether or not you want to continue the process. 

How much deposit do I need for a buy to let?

The minimum deposit for a buy-to-let mortgage in Leeds is usually 25% of the property’s value (although it can vary between 20-40%). 

How long does the process take?

Our free initial mortgage consultation can roughly last up to one hour. As a skilled Mortgage Broker in Leeds, we can get you an Agreement in Principle within 24 hours after we have all the correct information. On average, a formal mortgage offer takes about three weeks. 

What documents will I need to send?

If you’re an employee, you will usually have to supply three pay slips to prove your income. If you are Self Employed in Leeds, it is typically the latest two years’ accounts. You will also need to provide proof of ID, address and three months’ bank statements. 

I’m Self-Employed in Leeds, can I get a mortgage?

If you can show evidence of at least one year’s accounts, you may be able to get a mortgage. Most lenders in Leeds will use your salary plus dividend to work out your maximum mortgage. However, some can go off your net profit. 

Can I get a mortgage with previous credit problems?

Despite having shown any credit problems in the past, the good news is you may be able to get a mortgage, but it means you may be required to put down a higher deposit, e.g. 10 – 15% of the property purchase price.

Can I get a second mortgage in Leeds?

You can have two mortgages running simultaneously, as long as you can afford to repay the monthly instalments on each of them. If you’re looking to accomplish something like debt consolidation or home improvements, you may be able to place a second mortgage on your home. 

How long does an Agreement in Principle last?

An Agreement in Principle typically lasts for between 30 and 90 days depending on the Lender used. If your Agreement in Principle expires, it can easily get renewed by speaking to a Mortgage Advisor in Leeds. 

When should I obtain an Agreement in Principle?

To help demonstrate that you are creditworthy and assess your affordability for a mortgage, we recommend getting an Agreement in Principle ready before viewing properties in Leeds. At the very latest, you should obtain one before making an offer to assist your bargaining position and show any seller that you are ready to proceed should they accept your offer. We are typically able to obtain an agreement in principle within 24 hours.
