Video transcriptGetting a self employed mortgage can prove tricky and perhaps even more so these days, but First Choice Finance can help to ensure that being your own boss is no barrier to getting a home loan, be it a remortgage or a purchase mortgage.
Before the financial crisis, it was possible to get self-certification mortgages that could allow contractor buyers to get the homeowner loan they needed more easily. However, many feel these were abused before the fiscal downturn and after it lenders have been tightening up their borrowing criteria for all applicants.
This makes life particularly tough for contractors looking for a self-employed mortgage, as it can be harder for you to prove the income consistently as the nature of your work means that income often varies from month to month – and therefore their ability to make repayments may look less assured when compared to someone who has a regular payslip.
However, if you`re looking for a home loan and you are self-employed, you may want to get references from your accountants and an SA302 form, which can go a long way to showing lenders that you can afford to pay back the loan.
