Discover your mortgage potential in less than 10 minutes

Start an Agreement in Principle

Request a Mortgage in Principle Online

A mortgage Agreement in Principle is the first step towards your mortgage. It provides you with an indication of whether we could lend you the amount you need to borrow.

It only takes around 10 minutes to complete the form and get a result. We'll ask about your income and regular spending. We will undertake a soft credit search which has no impact on your credit file.

The information you provide will allow us to, in principle, agree to the amount you could borrow. If you then decide to apply for one of our mortgages, we’ll ask you to provide more detailed information about your circumstances.

An Agreement in Principle doesn’t guarantee you will be successful in a mortgage application, but it can give you an idea of how much we may be able to lend.

Please note we currently cannot provide an Agreement in Principle for interest only or buy to let mortgages. For more information on interest only or buy to let mortgages, contact us on 0800 023 2201. (Monday-Friday 8am-8pm, Saturday 9am-5pm and Sunday 10am-4pm).

Who can apply

  • UK and EU residents aged 18 and over
  • Moving your mortgage from another provider
  • Only available for residential properties in the UK (excluding Northern Ireland)
  • Using sterling income or assets only to repay the mortgage

Mortgage update from Yorkshire Bank

Following the Government guidance to “stay at home”, we have seen property valuers across the country stop all visits to homes for physical valuations.

Where possible, we will use alternative ways to value a property, such as desktop surveys and Automated Valuation Models – a computer estimate based on previous sales prices and property value indices. Unfortunately, this will not be available in all cases and therefore we have temporarily reduced the range of mortgages we can offer at this time. We will continue to monitor the situation closely, working hard to support as many customers as possible during this time.

Once you’ve got an Agreement in Principle, you can choose to start your mortgage application online with Yorkshire Bank, if eligible.

All applications are subject to status and lending criteria. A final lending decision will be based on assessment of how much you could reasonably afford, your individual circumstances, your credit score and the suitability of your property for security of your mortgage amount.

Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage
