Understand your budget with a Decision in Principle

A decision in principle is also called an “agreement” or “mortgage” in principle. They all refer to the same thing which is an initial yes from a mortgage lender.

This is here to give you an idea of what you can expect to borrow and know your budget. This is the best place to start.
A decision in principle will also allow you to see what mortgage rates you are eligible for. This helps you can understand your potential mortgage monthly repayments.
Many estate agents will ask to see a decision in principle if you would like to place an offer on a property. This acts as a way of showing the agent you can likely afford to buy the property and that you are a serious buyer. Remember, you can use any mortgage advisor you like, even if they suggest otherwise.

Can you get a mortgage on a grade 1 listed building?

Yes – you may be able to. There are lenders who can help with mortgages for grade 1 listed buildings. Much will depend on the age and condition of the building. Occasionally some may limit the term of the mortgage depending on the age of the building. We can help determine this by looking at the property specifics for you.

Can you get a mortgage on a grade 2 listed building?

Yes, you may be able to. Grade 2 listed buildings are the most common of listed buildings and can mean a greater number of options than grade 1 listed buildings with mortgages.

I want to renovate a property, can I get a mortgage?

Yes – you may be able to. There are other forms of finance that can help but you may be able to use a mortgage if you are looking to buy a renovation project as your next home.
