Get an Agreement in Principle

For a more accurate indication of how much you could borrow, get an Agreement in Principle. Have a property in mind? Find out if you can borrow what you need without affecting your credit score.

What is an Agreement in Principle?

An Agreement in Principle (AIP) is a personalised indication of how much you could borrow. It's based on the details that you provide. It's not a full mortgage offer, but it shows sellers and agents that you're a serious buyer.

You can get an AIP at any time without affecting your credit score or credit file.
