Mortgage offer extension

Buying a new property

If you’re currently in the process of buying a new property, you could be facing delays because of the ongoing Coronavirus situation. You may also have concerns about your finances so it might help to delay your purchase until the situation becomes more stable.

If you’ve exchanged contracts but you’re unable to complete the purchase because of the impact of Coronavirus, we’re here to support you. We can extend your mortgage offer for up to three months for both residential and Buy to Let purchases.

Can I apply for an extension to my mortgage offer?
If you’ve exchanged contracts on a residential or Buy to Let property and it’s been delayed because of Coronavirus, we’ll extend your mortgage offer for up to three months so that you can complete the purchase at a later date.
How can I apply for an extension?
Speak to your mortgage advisor if you have one, or contact us directly. We’ll need confirmation from your solicitor that contracts have been exchanged, and then we can extend your offer by up to three months.
What evidence will you need to see?
We’ll need written confirmation from your solicitor that contracts have been exchanged.
What if the purchase falls through but I find a new property quickly?
If this is the case, then you’ll need to apply for a new mortgage and this will be subject to our standard lending policy and affordability checks.
What happens if my circumstances change substantially during the extension period?
If any of your circumstances change during the extension period, whether those changes are personal, income-related or related to the property purchase, contact us and we’ll do our best to help.
What if I haven’t yet exchanged contracts and my mortgage offer is due to expire?
Our mortgage and remortgage offers are valid for a period of six months from the date you applied. If you haven’t exchanged contracts during this six month period, then you’ll need to apply for a new mortgage and this will be subject to our standard lending policy and affordability checks.
