What is a mortgage pre-approval?

A pre-approval is an offer (typically known as a Letter of Offer of Finance) from a bank or lending institution that indicates the maximum they are willing to lend. The document may have a list of conditions to still be met by the client. This is known as a Conditional Letter of Offer. A document with no conditions is known as an Unconditional Letter of Offer.
