    Quick question re DIP 11th Jul 17 at 12:52 PM
    We've got a DIP with Nationwide and put in an offer on a house on Saturday. Still waiting to hear back whether we've been successful or not.
    Realised this morning that the DIP is valid until today. Does it matter? Do I need to do anything?
    I'm presuming that if our offer gets accepted in the next couple of days it wont really matter?

    thats fine, its the full application that is the main thing, bare in mind that the EA and vendor now knows what you can you afford to the max, that is one reason I went through a broker and didn't get a AIP for the EA

    When your offer is successful and you progress to full application, Nationwide will run a new credit score anyway, so the expiry date of your DIP makes no difference.
