    First Direct Mortgage - Agreement in principal. 13th Sep 17 at 9:09 AM
    Called FD last night and got an agreement in principal.

    Thing is i have pet insurance and home insurance to renew within next couple of weeks.

    If i take out new policies I assume they'd do credit history searches just wondering would this have an impact on my mortgage application?

    Have also got 3 mobile contracts to sort but these can wait.

    Home insurance and pet insurance policies wont appear on your credit record - assuming you pay for them up front.

    And I think mortgage lenders are quite keen on their customers having home insurance - so it shouldn't be an issue at all.

    As for your pets - as long as you can afford to keep them and pay your mortgage that is fine as well.
