Leek United has doubled the offer period on its mortgages from three months to six months.
The increase, which came into effect this month, gives homebuyers the reassurance of additional time to get their purchases ‘over the line’.
Clare Beardmore, the society’s head of mortgage sales, said: “We listen carefully to all the feedback we get from brokers, and some told us that their clients would welcome the extra ‘breathing space’ of longer mortgage offers.
“Providing the best possible level of service for brokers is top of our priority list, which is why we have responded by increasing our offer period to six months.”
Leek United’s online Decision in Principle (DIP) service now makes it quicker and easier to get DIP.
If a DIP submission is received before 2pm, the society will respond the same day, or the following day after 2pm.
