What to expect in your mortgage meeting

We're looking forward to meeting you. The mortgage process can seem daunting, but our expert advisers are here to help.

Our advice is tailored to you and we will move at a pace that you find comfortable.

Your mortgage meeting is an opportunity:

  • to discuss your hopes around buying a new home or repackaging an existing mortgage;
  • to get advice from a mortgage expert on the most suitable product for your individual needs; and
  • to ask any questions you may have about the home-buying or mortgage processes.


Ahead of your meeting...

  • What will happen at my meeting?

    What will happen at my meeting?

    Normally there are three stages to your mortgage meeting:

    1. Update personal information and discuss your budget including income, outgoings, assets, liabilities.

    • If you're an existing customer we’ll confirm that the information we have for you is up to date. If you’re new to Danske Bank we’ll review your documents and complete some checks in line with regulations.
    • We will ask you about your existing credit commitments, including credit cards, personal loans, store cards, or other mortgages, and look at your current household spending to build up a picture of your disposable income. This will help us assess what mortgage options will be the most suitable for you.

    2. Mortgage advice and recommendation

    • Based on the personal and financial information you have provided, including how much you would like to borrow and how best you can structure your repayments, we will chat through what type of mortgage best meets your needs.
    • We’ll then provide an overview of suitable mortgages and repayment terms. Our advisers will explain everything in detail and ensure you are comfortable.

    3. Discuss Mortgage Protection and the next steps

    • We will discuss the importance of having protection in place and explain what happens at each stage of the application process.

    Once you’ve asked questions you may have and are comfortable with the mortgage we have recommended, we will process your application. This will involve us running a credit check with our partners Experian to ensure that the chosen mortgage is right for you.

  • How long will my meeting last?

    An average mortgage meeting lasts between 75 and 90 minutes, but we are happy to spend as much time with you as you need. It is important that you feel comfortable and reassured about what we know can seem like a daunting process.
