Apply for a mortgage in principle – even if you haven’t found ‘the one’ yet

If you’re ready to buy, but you haven’t got a mortgage agreed in principle yet, you’ll save valuable time by starting this process now.

If you find your dream home you will want to make an offer. The first two things your estate agent will ask at this stage is if you have a mortgage in principle, and if you have proof of funds ready to pay the deposit.

Get started by confirming your budget. Call the team at Bepoke Mortgage & Protection Services on 0161 529 9110.

Find a solicitor

Do you have a solicitor ready to go to help you with conveyancing? Valuable time can be lost once your offer has been accepted if you still need to find someone to help you to get the documentation for the sale completed.

If you have to sell your home to move, instruct us now

If you have a property to sell, contact your local estate agent now about getting it listed for sale on Rightmove. You’ll be in a much stronger position as a buyer if you are in the process of selling your home, or have already accepted an offer.

Remember, as soon as your home is listed on our site, every buyer interested in your area will receive an Instant Alert to view your property.

You can’t get things moving faster than that.
