Your steps to applying for a first time buyer mortgage
Get an indicative decision
You’ll need to get an Agreement in Principle to see if we think we may be able to lend you the amount you require.
This isn’t a firm decision, but it’s the most accurate result we can give you without performing a credit check. It won't take long and it won’t affect your credit score.
Continue and complete your application
Once you have your Agreement in Principle in place, you can meet one of our mortgage advisers at a branch, or talk with a member of our mortgage team over the phone. Request a callback to arrange this.
Alternatively, if you get an Agreement in Principle, you can select the mortgage you wish to apply for and continue your application online.
