Self Employed Taxi Drivers Mortgage Advice

Mortgages for Taxi Drivers explained

If you’re an employed taxi driver, it can be more simple to get a mortgage. You just present your payslips to the lender and they will assess your affordability like any other employed person. Of course we can help you with this.

If you are a self employed taxi driver or an Uber Driver, it can be more complicated. We often hear some of the following things from Taxi Drivers:

  • My income can fluctuate with seasonality
  • I haven’t been a self employed for long and so don’t have that much income evidence
  • My income has been impacted by Covid
  • I don’t know how to present my income to a mortgage lender

Whatever your concern, we can help.

As a self employed person, it can be more challenging to apply for a mortgage but by no means impossible.

We know what documents you need to provide to the lender to prove your affordability. We have relationships with specialist lenders who are more likely to accept applications from Taxi Drivers and Uber drivers. We also know how to package your income to maximise the likelihood of a successful outcome.

By using an experienced mortgage adviser like us, we can help guide you through this whole process and help make it as stress free as possible.

Key points to remember

Do I need a different type of mortgage as a Taxi Driver?

There is no specific Taxi Driver mortgage. However the way that you apply for the mortgage and the way the lender assesses your income is different to an employed person. We will apply for your mortgage as a self employed person.

The mortgage lender will want to see evidence that you earn enough to be able to afford the mortgage you are applying for. To prove your income when you apply for a self-employed mortgage, you will generally need to provide:

  • A set of certified accounts – generally this should be two or three years, but can be one year for some lenders
  • SA302 forms or a Tax Year Overview which you can get from HMRC. Again this is generally two or three years but can be one year for some lenders
  • If you are a Company Director you will need to provide evidence of dividend payments and or retained profits
  • Six months’ Bank Statements which they will look through in order to assess affordability based on income and outgoings

In addition to your employment income, the lender will also need to see documents which prove you are who you say you are, live where you say you live and that you have a right to live in the UK.

At Your Mortgage Expert, we can help pull all this documentation together and ensure the lenders have all the information they need. We can also give advice if you only have 1 year of accounts.

We can also look at different types of mortgages which might be more suited to the way you are paid. You may also want to look at an Offset mortgage or a mortgage with greater flexibility to take payment breaks. This will take advantage of the fluctuations in your pay. For example, it might be useful for you to overpay or underpay or even take a payment break.
