How long a Fleet Mortgages application takes

We don’t currently have access to data on how long a Fleet Mortgages application takes. 

What affects the time taken to approve my application

The time it takes a lender to approve an application depends on your personal circumstances and how busy the lender is.

It can take as little as 24 hours to approve some applications, but some can take weeks or even months.

The quality of the application can affect the approval time. A mortgage broker can help by making sure your application has all the details the lender needs.

These details were last updated in July 2020.

Types of mortgages Fleet Mortgages offers

Fleet Mortgages offers buy to let mortgages for:

  • Residential landlords/standard buy to let

  • Limited companies 

  • Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMOs)

Fleet Mortgages offers mortgages up to 75% LTV. So you will need to put down a deposit of at least 25%.

If you’re buying a property to rent out to residential tenants, this type of mortgage might be for you. 

Fleet Mortgages has a selection of fixed-rate standard BTL mortgages.

You can also expand your property portfolio with Fleet Mortgages by purchasing buy-to-lets through a limited company.

Fleet Mortgages’ HMO mortgages are designed for properties with at least three tenants that form more than one household.

Getting a mortgage with Fleet Mortgages

You can only get a Fleet Mortgages mortgage from an intermediary or mortgage broker.

Fleet Mortgages mortgage offers are valid for 180 days. 

This gives you half a year to finalise everything you need to complete the purchase of your property.

If you cannot buy your home in that time, you’ll need to ask for an extension or apply again.

With Fleet Mortgages, there are no early repayment charges if you switch to a new deal online in the last 3 months before your current deal ends (or at any time if you’re on one of the bank’s lender variable rates).

Fleet Mortgages mortgage payments

Fleet mortgages will send you a letter within 10 days of completion. This will confirm how much your first payment will be and when it’ll be collected. 

Following the initial payment, your mortgage payments will be due in advance on the first day of each month.

You can’t make overpayments during your mortgage’s fixed rate, discount or tracker period without incurring an early repayment charge (ERC). 

However, once the early repayment charge period has ended, you can make overpayments in any amount without early repayment charges.

If you fall into financial difficulty, Fleet Mortgages may be able to extend your mortgage term or look at what you can pay for the short-term. To find out if the lender offers payment holidays, contact them directly.

Insurance

Lenders will always require you to take out buildings insurance on the property. 

Contents insurance isn’t compulsory but is highly recommended.
