    Hi, I heard from Kensington today asking for proof of address as I have a gap in my electoral roll, and they want proof of deposit and the 3months worth of mortgage payments they require now due to covid which we've done. Have you heard back about a date for your valuation yet? 
    Hi,  yes, we know that they are going to value our property on 25th June 2020. However, they have now asked for more info, that being proof of savings for the mortgage payments. Have you heard back from your valuation?

    We have heard back from Kensington today, and the mortgage broker advised all documents have been satisfied, but we just need to provide a letter explaining why our financial commitments are so high. We are planning to pay them all off you see.

    We are also just awaiting a valuation, but there is a just a bit of a backlog because of Covid. 

    Just wondering if anyone else has experienced this request for a letter, and what that meant for them, I.e where you successful in the end or did they come back and ask more questions?

    thanks 
    I had to do a letter with them, explaining why I had loans/credit cards (what the purpose of them was) - think it's common with them.

    @ukblogger hi, thanks for this, was your application successful? 

    Did they come back to you with more questions after this? (unrelated to the letter as well as)

    Sorry for the slow reply.
    Application was successful yeah - although it was very, very slow! After the letter there were no more questions, but initially they wanted a lot of paperwork - they wanted copies of all my credit agreements, and reasons for taking them out. They also questioned a few transactions on my bank statement, but they did complete eventually. I had a bad credit history and a high amount of debt which was consolidated onto the mortgage, and it still went ahead.

    Hope you don't mind me jumping in on the conversation.
    How slow was slow? Was it over 4 weeks?  We are hoping to apply at the start of July and if successful just trying to gauge the wait.  We are due to exchange on a property.  Thanks 😁

    Hi all, just applied for a DIP with Like Mortgages the recommended Kensington broker and we’ve been referred for DIP! Anyone had this before? Did get a reason something to do with they can’t access the credit file or something. Clarifying with the broker for exact reason. I am a bit worried that if we are referred at this early stage we won’t even get to an application stage! Anyone experienced a referral for DIP? Thank you!
