4. Your offer for your new investment property has been accepted!

5. Pre-Purchase

  • After your application is approved and you have found your new investment property, we will make arrangements for the property to be valued
  • Subject to valuation we will issue you with the loan documents; this includes a facility letter and key terms and conditions. We will give you a 7-day reflection period before you sign and accept the Buy-To-Let mortgage offer

6. Purchase

  • You will sign and return facility documents 
  • At this point, if you haven't done so already, you will need to instruct  a lawyer to act on your behalf in the mortgage and purchase of the property
  • We will also instruct lawyers to act for the bank and they will liaise with your lawyers to ensure all the Bank's security formalities are in place ready for drawdown of the mortgage

7. Complete

  • Once the completion date is agreed, the deed of the mortgage is signed at your lawyer's office. The mortgage is drawn down and funds are transferred to the lawyers ready for completion on your property purchase. 
  • On completion day the funds are paid to the seller, the property is transferred into your name(s) and you get the keys to your new investment property!

We at Trusted Novus Bank want to help make your journey of buying your investment property easy, personal and out of the ordinary.



Applications are subject to the applicant’s personal financial circumstances. Terms and conditions apply. 

The property may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage
