What is a mortgage agreement in principle?

An Agreement in Principle is also known as a 'Decision in Principle' or a 'Mortgage Promise', a mortgage lender will give you this to confirm how much they might lend you, based on the details you give them. It's not a binding offer but it could help show sellers and agents that you're a serious buyer.
