Service updates

Please bear with us at the moment

We may take longer to answer your calls and messages, or to process your applications and requests. Some of our employees are self-isolating, and there is a lot to do, but we'll continue to work as fast as we can. As always, supporting you and your clients is our top priority.

Reminder: Stamp duty holiday deadline is Wednesday 31 March 2021. Please make sure you allow enough time for the mortgage application and legal work to complete to meet eligibility criteria.

The best service starts with great communication. So here, you can get an indication of how long it’ll take us to process your cases.

We only ask that you don’t call us for an update within the first 10 working days after you submit an application, as we'll be processing your case. If we need anything further from you, we'll be in touch.
