Case tracking

Track your applications

After submitting your case via NFI Online, you can see all your cases, your 15 most recent cases or search for a particular case on the ‘Case Update’ page. 

NFI Online is automatically updated, so you can get an up-to-date case update online, without the need to call. You can:

  • View detailed case requirements
  • Check the history of the case and access documents on this screen
  • See the valuation dates and progress
  • Upload documentation using scan and attach
  • Download case documents

If you need to make amendments to a submitted case, then please see 'Amend Case'. We will pause all processing whilst an application status is ‘Amend Case’.

Check our current service levels to see how long it will take us to complete the assessment. We'll contact you if we need any further information.

Valuation updates

  • You can check the status and the details of a valuation. This includes instruction, inspection and the report received dates. You can find this on the 'Case Update' page on NFI Online in the 'Valuation' tab.
  • You can find valuation reports for all New Build applications on NFI Online. Go to the 'Case Updates' page and then click on the 'Case Documents' tab.
  • In most cases, valuations are instructed when you submit a mortgage application. We aim to contact the access provider on the application within 24 hours.
  • Properties deemed low risk are unlikely to require a physical valuation.
  • We don't provide copies of basic mortgage valuation reports, except for New Build applications.
  • We’ll send a text to confirm the valuation date once it’s been booked. To receive this, you’ll need to make sure you or your client has opted into text alerts.

Case requirements

  • Please don’t send documents we haven’t requested. This could delay your application. We don’t need you to provide proof of your applicants’ ID unless we've asked for it.
  • Ensure you upload all the requested documents as soon as possible. For more tips on packaging, read our support guide.
  • You can view the case requirements and whether they've been received, by going to the ‘Case Update’ page within NFI Online. It'll give you:
    • a summary of the application status
    • the DIP
    • valuation
    • offer
    • the solicitor's information.
  • A scanning app could help save you some time.
  • When a case requirement has been received, it'll appear on the Case Update page under the Case Documents tab.
  • You’ll need to declare if your client has to pay off debts on or before completion in the ‘Monthly Outgoings’ section of the Decision in Principle (DIP). You'll then need to key the amount they'll be paying off.
  • If a bank statement has been requested and the account in question is a Nationwide one, simply complete the Notification for Mortgage New Business form. Then Scan and Attach to clear the requirement.
  • To attach documents to an outstanding case, log into NFI Online and click the ‘Attach Documents’ link from the ‘Case Home’ page.
