Customers of the Post Office will be able to apply for mortgages in branches with effect from today, offering a personalised service to customers and increasing competition on the high street.

The service will initially be available at branches in Norwich, Solihull, Birmingham, Walsall and Luton, before being rolled out nationally, and will allow customers to discuss their mortgage needs, submit Approval in Principles and even full applications.

Post Office mortgages will still be available to customers via telephone and online.

Head of mortgages at the Post Office, Mike Cook, said: "We understand that taking out a mortgage is one of the most important financial decisions you have to make.

"Finding the right one can be a complex process and this is one of the reasons why we have introduced our specially trained mortgage specialists to assist our customers through the process."
