Lenders have stringent legal procedures that can make borrowing money to finance your purchase an uphill struggle. You will need to allow plenty of time and we recommend that you follow up every stage of your mortgage application regularly, to avoid delays.

Your lender will appoint a conveyancer; lenders want to be sure that if they ever have to repossess a property, they will be able to sell the property without any difficulty. The mortgage must be registered with the Land Registry immediately after completion has taken place, which we will usually deal with.
