    Currently in the same boat, reserved the house on Saturday... sending over our reservation form to the broker today so can imagine they’ll fill out the HTB form today or tomorrow, I seen that it takes around 4 days to be processed and then we can apply for the mortgage keeping my fingers crossed!

    Halifax are normally very quick. The thing that will determine how long you'll be waiting for will be the valuer and how quick they can go out to see the property.
