I’m a first time buyer, how do I get a mortgage?

The first step to securing a mortgage is applying for a Decision in Principle (DiP). Also known as an Agreement in Principle or a Mortgage in Principle, a DiP will give you an idea of how much you could borrow, without affecting your credit score.

Once you’ve found your dream home, and you're ready to apply for a mortgage, our advisors will recommend the most suitable mortgage for you, if you meet our lending criteria.
