How to get a mortgage - or remortgage - in Dunstable


Dunstable is 30 miles from London and is a market town in the county of Bedfordshire. The earliest settlements in the area are thought to be prehistoric. It is on the route of the Icknield Way, claimed to be the oldest road in Britain.

Dunstable Priory was founded in 1131 by King Henry I although all that remains of it now is St Peter's Church.

The railway arrived in 1848 and with it, the population expanded and housing development increased, although its previous importance as a market town declined as neighbouring Luton grew. During the 20th century, the town had a thriving printing and motor vehicle industry, although manufacturing in general declined post-World War II. Modern Dunstable is very much a retail centre.

Dunstable is home to the Grove Theatre, which hosts national and local productions and has a number of bars and restaurants. Landmarks include the Priory House Heritage Centre. Whipsnade Zoo is also in Dunstable's locale.

The mortgage application process has 4 stages regardless of which mortgage lender you use:

  • Approval in principal (AIP)
  • Mortgage in principal (MIP)
  • Mortgage valuation
  • Mortgage Offer

Mortgage Broker Tip 

Self-employed mortgage

When you're employed, if you apply for a mortgage, your mortgage lender can more easily ascertain your income level including how much tax you've paid, how long you've been employed and what you can expect to live on each month after deductions. With self-employment, particularly if you've not been trading for long, it's much more difficult for a lender to take a position on what your expected income is..

There are, however, an increasing number of self-employed mortgages available, and an independent mortgage broker can greatly assist you in finding the right one and one which gives you the greatest chance of success in application. They normally require you to provide at least 2 years' worth of company accounts, SA302s or tax returns and possibly evidence of future work lined up.

Only apply for credit if you've a realistic chance of success

By obtaining a recent credit report, you should be able to ascertain whether that credit application you're thinking of making is likely to be successful.
Repeated failed applications can greatly harm your credit score; you should be prepared to wait, ideally for 6 months, before making another application when you've had one turned down.

Mortgage Broker Tips for the Conveyancing Process

Book your mortgage valuation as soon as you've had your offer accepted

If you're buying with a mortgage, you won't be able to complete unless the funds have come through to your solicitor. You have to apply for a mortgage, be accepted/get a mortgage in principle but then, once you've had an offer accepted, your mortgage lender has to value the property and only after this, assuming all goes to plan, do you get your mortgage offer with funds in readiness.

You can therefore minimise lost time by booking your mortgage valuation on the day you have an offer accepted. It may take around a week or so for the valuation survey to take place, then you have to allow for a few days to elapse before you have your offer. If you delay, the whole process slows down. 

Additionally, if there's any issues, like your lender undervaluing your property or making you a conditional offer, there might be further delays.
