What is the mortgage application process for a purchase?

Mortgages can be daunting, especially if you’re a first-time buyer. At Thameside Mortgages, however, from your first enquiry to getting the keys, we will be on hand to guide and support you every step of the way. Here’s what you can expect:

1.) Our mortgages brokers in Kent will start with an initial chat so we can gather some details. This will give us an idea of how much you can borrow, your maximum purchase price, the costs associated with the mortgage and your approximate monthly repayments.

2.) You’ll then receive an email detailing this information and setting out your next steps should you wish us to proceed to find an Agreement in Principle (AIP).

3.) Once you have an AIP, we will send you a full list of documentation we will need to complete the application. If you are purchasing a new property, you can now go and start house hunting, and we will check in with you every 1-2 weeks. 

4.) Once your offer has been accepted and we have the information required to submit an application, we will ensure the survey (valuation) of the property is arranged and send the required documents to the mortgage lender. Our job is to obtain a formal mortgage offer (approval) as quickly as possible.

5.) At this point, there are numerous areas we can help with. Firstly, we would look to ensure you have the right level of insurance to protect you, your family and your home. Things can get complicated and confusing during the legal process, so we will always be on hand to help you with each step and provide the solicitor with any documents in relation to your purchase. We’ll continue to liaise with you and the solicitors to ensure clear and smooth communication and regular updates right through to the point of completion. So you never feel left in the dark or overwhelmed and confused by jargon.

6.) Once completed, you can relax, feeling confident that you have the right mortgage and protection. 

We’ll now take care of you for as long as you have a mortgage and beyond. We will be in touch six months before your new deal is about to end and walk you through the process again.

What is the mortgage application process for a remortgage?

Interest rates have risen significantly since the turn of 2022, meaning thousands of people are coming to the end of low-interest rate mortgage deals. It’s incredibly difficult to know whether to gamble on rates reducing or take the security of a long-term fixed rate. 

When there are six months left on your current deal, it’s the perfect time to assess your options. Don’t worry. You won’t pay a penalty for coming out of your current deal early. You will just secure a deal ready for when the current mortgage product comes to an end.

At Thameside Mortgages, from your initial conversation to the completion of your remortgage, we will provide you with the pros and cons of the thousands of mortgage products out there, ensuring we choose a product that suits your needs and attitude to risk. Here’s what you can expect:

1.) We’ll start with an initial chat so we can gather some details. This will give us an idea of your existing mortgage details (balance/term/interest rate/when your deal ends). 

2.) We’ll guide you through the various mortgage options, such as fixed rate vs variable rates and short-term vs long-term deals.

3.) This will be the perfect time to decide whether you’re happy keeping all aspects of your mortgage the same, such as the loan amount and the mortgage term, or if you would like to consider raising extra finances at the same time to make home improvements or clear some debt.

4.) Invariably, we will compare the mortgages your existing lender can offer against the thousands of other products available to you.

5.) You’ll then receive an email detailing your options, setting out your next steps to secure the deal and a full list of the information we will need to complete your application. 

6.) Once we submit your application, we will send the required documents to the mortgage lender, and our team will work hard to obtain the formal mortgage offer/approval as quickly as possible.

7.) We will look to ensure you have the right level of insurance to protect you, your family and your home. We will liaise with you and the solicitors to ensure clear and smooth communication and regular updates right through to the point of completion. So you never feel left in the dark or overwhelmed and confused by jargon.

8.) Once your remortgage has completed, you can relax, feeling confident that you have the right mortgage and protection for your needs.

9.) We will take care of you for as long as you have a mortgage and beyond. We will be in touch six months before your new deal rate is about to end and walk you through the process again.

What our clients are saying…

  • Andrew and Laura were attentive to all our needs and gave us all the facts to help us make informed decisions. They were more than happy to answer our many many questions and always did so in a very timely manner. We had some issues with our solicitors taking too long to action paperwork but both Andrew and Laura chased things up on our behalf. The support and guidance along the way was definitely appreciated. We shall definitely use Thameside Mortgages again!

    Andrew and the team at Thameside Mortgages provided a fantastic service throughout our re-mortgage process. From detailing how it all works and what steps we have to take along the way with taking care of our best interests. Andrew was also able to sort out life insurance for me and my partner ensuring we are protected with what we seemed necessary. I very much look forward to using Thameside Mortgages in the future and would recommend anyone else to do so.

    Jordan Smith Avatar Jordan Smith

    Having used a number of mortgage advisors in the past, I can say that Thameside were a breath of fresh air. We have an unusual situation and were told we couldn’t get what we needed from other advisors. Thameside were able to arrange a mortgage and kept us updated constantly and were available any time to discuss all the usual issues. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a mortgage.

  • Thameside Mortgages have been fantastic. They helped me through the whole mortgage process and were totally supportive.

They will always do their best to help you. Believe me you are in safe hands with them. Thanks Sharon

    We brought our first home nearly 2 years ago, we had Jason Harris as our advisor. I can’t put into words how much he helped from the very first call to present day with our remortgage and life insurance. Jason has been incredible from the get go, it felt as though we didn’t have to do anything really, as he found everything for us and gave multiple options so all we did was say yes or no. He broke everything down and explained things in such a simple way for us to not get too overwhelmed. He made everything feel stress free and simple, as well as finding us an incredible offer twice he has also found cheaper life insurance policies for us which is something I didn’t even think to do, he has saved us £100’s of pounds overall with our new offers. Really appreciate having him as our advisor and he’s a really helpful and lovely guy. Thank you Thameside & Thank you Jason.

  • I had a fantastic experience with Thameside Mortgages, Jason was extremely proactive throughout the entire process and was a pleasure to work with. He was very patient and knowledgeable which helped reassure me as a first time buyer, an absolute asset. All my questions were answered swiftly and he would constantly check in with me throughout what ended up being a long drawn out process. I highly recommend.

    Jordan Shodeinde Avatar Jordan Shodeinde

    Andrew and Laura provided an exceptional service and my partner and I are extremely grateful for their services. They were both on hand to answer any questions or queries without hesitation and provided clear, concise and accurate information. As first time buyers and with one of us being self employed, it proved extremely difficult for us to get a mortgage (especially in a pandemic), however Laura and Andrew both went above and beyond to ensure we were looked after and for that we are extremely thankful.

    Andrew and his team did an amazing job on our mortgage and the surrounding process. We had our offer in principle within 24 hours of contacting them. The on boarding was seamless and laura kept us updated with progress from our solicitors throughout the wider conveyancing process which means we were always well informed. I would not hesitate in recommending them to anyone

    Phil Wrigglesworth Avatar Phil Wrigglesworth
  • Andrew & Laura were amazing at Thameside Mortgages. They were able to secure us a mortgage after we purchased the property, so only a few lenders were available to us. We were happy with the mortgage they recommended. The conveyancer wasn't the best, but Andrew & Laura pushed that side too. This is the second mortgage I've got through Thameside Mortgages and I will definitely use them again! Can't recommend them enough. Fantastic service, always available and happy to help. Thanks guys 🙂

    paul sharp Avatar paul sharp

    I genuinely can't thank Andrew and Laura enough for all of their hard graft through a very stressful process! The sleepless nights have been totally worth it!! I couldn't have done this with out your superb guidance. Professional, caring, excellent communication, explations to a solo first time buyer that doesn't always understand the jargon that comes with process. I was told by several people I didn't earn enough, needed a partner, better paid job to get on the property ladder. Andrew took this as a challenge and found me an excellent mortgage deal, twice!! I am so, so happy that I chose them to make this a lot easier. I genuinely can't recommend Thameside Mortgages enough. Forever grateful!

    Lauren Cosgrove Avatar Lauren Cosgrove

Great company and service received.

    Impeccable service from Andrew and his team @ Thameside Mortgages. Very helpful, thorough and professional service. What’s more, we were under time restraints due to the temporary reduced rates of stamp duty; Thameside exceeded our expectations and got the job done with the mortgage secured and plenty of time to spare; a pleasant experience all round. Thanks Thameside!
