Prepare well for your mortgage appointment

Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage

What you need to bring to a mortgage appointment

There are a lot of things you need to bring along with you when attending a mortgage interview. These are to help confirm your identity and also to prove your income and expenditure. By having all the documents you need you’ll make sure your application isn’t delayed.

Estimate your monthly mortgage repayments by using our mortgage calculator. You could also look at our article, ‘Financial considerations of home ownership’, to give you a better idea of some of the costs involved in buying a home.

Our checklist can help you be prepared. We’re here to help you every step of the way.
