You can make an appointment to sit with a mortgage specialist pretty much any time. They make themselves available because they are interested in serving your needs. Pre-Approvals expire though, typically after about 90 days. If you don't think you're ready to put in an offer on a house yet, then you should probably hold off until after you've begun viewing homes with the help of your Manor Agent.
Don't worry, your agent will also
PRO TIP: Some mortgage professionals can and will offer longer Pre-Approval windows
