Most of the lenders publish their service standards on their website showing how long they are taking on average to produce mortgage offers.

Some of the lenders with swift turnaround times are also offering incredibly cheap rates. If you are in a rush to get a mortgage, there are some lenders that you probably should avoid for a while.

Aaron Strutt, product director at Trinity Financial, says: "We aim to send our clients mortgage applications to the lenders once we have all of the documentation they require. It slows the process by sending information separately as the lenders typically take a few days to open their post and re-assess cases."
