How long does a mortgage in principle last for?
Your mortgage in principle length ranges from 30 to 90 days, depending on the lender. If you haven’t found a property or your offer hasn’t been accepted, you might be able to renew its terms after that period.
Do I need a mortgage agreement in principle to view a house?
The short answer is no. However, you may have less chance of an offer being accepted, as many sellers look for buyers who won’t slow down the process. They often want to close a deal as soon as possible, and if you’re not ready, it’s likely that someone else will be.
