A residential mortgage application typically takes two to four weeks to process. But this can also depend on the lender’s workload and your circumstances. Our dedicated team of experts can guide you through the process and help you secure a mortgage as quickly and efficiently as possible.

What are the fees associated with a Residential Mortgage?
arrow down

The specific fees for a residential mortgage vary from lender to lender. To make the costs involved as clear as possible, our advisors will provide you with a full breakdown of all fees and charges associated with your residential mortgage.

Can I have more than one residential mortgage?
arrow down

Even if you’re repaying a mortgage on a home, you can take out a second mortgage to buy another. However, lenders have strict criteria for residential mortgages, as the interest rates and terms tend to be much better than mortgages for buy-to-let properties. So you’ll need to provide plenty of proof that you intend to live in this property, not rent it out or use it for business purposes.

Can I have more than one residential mortgage on the same property?
arrow down

Yes, you can take out a second mortgage product on a home you’re currently paying for. The maximum amount you can borrow with your second residential mortgage depends on the amount of the property you currently own. This is determined by the total value of your home minus the cost of the mortgage you still owe on it. In general, lenders will let you borrow up to 75% of the equity in your property. So if you currently own 50% of your property outright, you can expect to borrow a maximum of 37.5% of the total property value.
