| || The formal mortgage offer letter. |
If your application is successful, and the property valuation is satisfactory, the mortgage lender will send you a formal mortgage offer letter.
When you receive the mortgage offer letter from the lender it's important to read through it carefully. The document will contain the exact figure the lender is willing to advance, taking into account your financial background and the property's market value.
If there are any discrepancies you should contact the lender as soon as you can so they can correct any mistakes or provide clarification on any issues.
| || Mortgage offer conditions. |
The mortgage offer will contain certain terms and conditions and will normally have a time limit attached to it. Some lenders are flexible once the mortgage offer has been releases and in many cases it may be possible to extend the offer period. This is particularly useful if there has been a delay with the purchase for any reason and avoids having to re-apply.
Some lenders will have conditions to allow them to revoke the mortgage offer. for example if you're made redundant, before completion of the purchase.
Once you have the mortgage offer your solicitor will be able to proceed knowing that the funds for the purchase having been secured.
