How to apply for a mortgage

Before you apply

Each applicant will need the following information to hand:

Details of:

  • your salary and employment if you are employed/self employed
  • your existing mortgage if you have one

Monthly payments you make in relation to:

  • Maintenance
  • Bank/secured/student loans or HP agreements
  • Credit cards
  • Child minding/nursery/school fees

We will also need to know the amount of debt and date of the incident if you have ever:

  • had arrears on a financial commitment
  • had a CCJ/High Court Judgement
  • been subject to an IVA/Bankruptcy or Trust Deed

Apply Online

Step 1 - Approval in Principle

Obtaining a quick lending decision takes approximately 10 minutes.

Based on the information you tell us we will advise you if we will be able to provide you with a mortgage.

An Approval in Principle is valid for 30 days and involves the Society carrying out a credit check on you. You can save the lending decision, and either proceed to Step 2 (Full Mortgage Application) or complete your application later.

Step 2 - Full Mortgage Application

If you have found a property that you wish to buy and your offer has been accepted, you are in a position to apply for a mortgage in full. This stage of the application process will take you approximately 20 minutes to complete.
