Written bySam O'Neill & Sam Hodgson

It can also be viewed as a confirmation that a lender is willing to give a borrower a certain amount.

You can apply for an agreement in principle online or by phone.

The lender will the supply a document which will indicate the maximum amount they are willing to lend to this borrower based on the information provided.

An agreement in principle is not:

You might be denied an agreement in principle for a number of reasons – i.e.
