Self Employed Mortgage Advice
Mortgage Advice for Self Employed Buyers | Self Employed Mortgages in Middlesbrough
It’s not impossible to be Self-Employed and also have a mortgage
It’s not easy getting a mortgage when you are self-employed – regardless of what industry you happen to be in and how much money you make on an annual basis. That’s because traditional high street lenders ie banks and building societies can sometimes make self-employed applicants jump through more hoops in terms of proving their income.
Today’s working patterns are very different. In fact, there were 4.8 million people ‘working for themselves’ in 2017, compared to 3.3 million in 2001. That’s a jump of 1.5 million people – a huge number of potential customers in any one’s book.
The fact that self-employed individuals have to provide more evidence of their income to prove they can afford mortgage repayments has resulted in many people contacting out specialist Mortgage Advisors in Middlesbrough for help and advice.
