How to buy your first home

7. Getting your house keys and moving in

Getting your keys and moving in

Now for the exciting bit! Moving in and making your new house a home!

By this point you’ll have exchanged contracts and have been given a date to collect your keys from your estate agent. You’ll also receive written confirmation that your mortgage has started and when the first payment will be taken. We can make sure that all your insurance policies are in place ready for you to enjoy your new home.

We’ll continue to support you even after you’ve moved in. You can contact us at anytime for support and we’ll keep reviewing your mortgage to make sure you’re on the best deal available. Our free OpenMoney app can also help you with all your money management needs in your new home, from saving on bills to putting money towards that new piece of furniture. You can download the OpenMoney app on both iOS and Android.

In the future we’ll also be introducing remortgages to our service, for when your current interest rate and term expires. We’ll help you to move from one mortgage to another to make sure you’re always getting the best deal available to you.
