The length of time that it takes to get a mortgage offer can vary enormously, from a few days to several weeks, but typically a mortgage arranged by one of our recommended brokers will take around 2 weeks.
As mentioned earlier, our advice would be to obtain an agreement in principle early in the process. Take advice from a mortgage broker who will understand the varying requirements of the different lenders and will be able to advise you on what information and documentation they will need. You should also prepare your documents so that they are ready to be submitted with the application. A ‘fully packaged’ application, with all of the relevant documents supporting it, sent on day one can receive a mortgage offer within a matter of days.
