Why Contractors can struggle getting a mortgage

shutterstock_141193303We often speak to contractors who tell us they have struggled to secure mortgages on the high street. This is because many of the in-house mortgage consultants for high street lenders aren’t familiar with the way contractors are paid. They often base a contractor’s mortgage on your accounts or other tax efficient methods that may be used, which don’t truly reflect what you earn.

Do any of the following sound like your situation:

• I’ve spoken to lenders in the past who won’t accept my application because I contract
• Because I contract, I am not sure how much I can borrow
• My accounts don’t really reflect how much I actually earn

If so, then we can help. We know which mortgage lenders are familiar with the way contractors work. These lenders will work off your contract alone. So will give you a mortgage based on an annualised figure of your contract rate and will ignore your Limited Company accounts or any other tax efficient method you use.

How are contractor mortgages different?

The main difference with contractor mortgages is how the lender assesses your income.

Rather than using a “one size fits all” model. Most lenders that welcome contractor customers have more bespoke lending criteria aimed at the financial needs of contract workers.

This underwriting method will use an annualised figure of your contract rate to assess your affordable mortgage. So rather than restricting your assessable income to a director’s salary and dividends as shown on your Limited Company accounts, these lenders will use your gross contract rate to assess your income, enabling you to apply for a mortgage that reflects your true level of income.

What information will I need to provide?

This can vary depending on your contracting experience and the level of deposit or equity. But typically, all you will need to provide is your contract, CV and a few bank statements.

Speak to one of our mortgage advisers who will be able to tell you which lenders are able to help and the exact requirements for each of them. We can help take the stress and uncertainty out of your application.
