    Finding it hard to know what to believe. They haven't even done a soft search yet on my credit file. I'm going to change mortgage advisors if I don't get something by Tuesday at latest. 
    Are you checking Experian (MSE credit club) to look for the search?

    They did a mortgage quotation and ID searches, both on the same day.

    Nothing stopping you from changing broker and many of us have used ACG who posts on these forums.
  • @MovingForwards I signed up to Experian direct to get some insight to what is actually going on. I think I will be looking for a new advisor by Tuesday if there is no progress. I'm going to have to reserve my home without DIP tomorrow otherwise I risk losing it which is really irritating. 
    Now I know about the MSE credit club im cancelling Experian!

    Are ways of accessing your reports, remember not all lenders report to all of them and Bluestone only the one.

    Hope you find a better broker.

    Do Bluestone only use Experian not Equifax?

    Thank you. How long was yours with the underwriters before you heard anything? My nerves are shattered ...I can’t sleep.

    Mine was pre-Covid, over Christmas and New Year. Went in a few days before Xmas day, got the offer a month later. 

    I had a lot of faith in my broker.

    My broker has been amazing as my credit is shocking (simply). I’ve just checked my credit file and a search was done on the 23rd. I keep looking for declined reviews just to compare myself but haven’t found anything which is positive. Thanks for your reply.
  • I'm hoping today my broker comes good and my concern is unfounded! Fingers and toes crossed!

    We got our offer through in writing today!! I’m still in disbelief I can’t beleive it! It was so painless and took a total of 3 weeks from full application to official offer, which is quicker than most banks at the moment! I’m over the moon finally going to be a homeowner! And was much less stressful than I thought it would be! 
    Hi. Great news re your mortgage 👍. Our buyers are with bluestone and we were expecting them to get an answer today re their mortgage offer but I think we were being overly optimistic. Can you tel me what their process was with you. Ie DIP, then underwriting? Then offer? Our buyers have said it’s gone to underwriters but we thought it already had? There application went in on 9th July? we’ve got another offer on our house and don’t know whether to go with the other offer as we have a house we want and might lose it if there’s too much delay. Thanks in advance x

    The process is DIP, application, underwriter, valuation, underwriter, offer.
    Oh crikey so even after valuation it goes back to underwriter?! So it could be declined then! 😫 x
    You are only allowed to progress to having the valuation done (And pay for the valuation) once the underwriter is happy with everything else. 
    Once the valuation is done it’s just the final review by the underwriter of the valuation before the full offer is issued which was within a few hours with ours. 

    If anyone needs a mortgage advisor go to Clever mortgages and ask for Laura. She was amazing!!!!! 

    Stay positive ☺️ You are nearly there. 
    Thanks so much for taking time to reply. Heard back last week from our (hopefully!) buyers that bluestone need a few more days re underwriting so they should find out early this week so all our toes and fingers crossed! X
