The questions on most new (or even experienced) contractors and freelancer’s minds when it comes to mortgages are:
- What size mortgage can I get as an independent professional?
- How much will the repayments be?
- Is it difficult to get a mortgage as an independent professional?
- Can I even get a mortgage? I don’t have years of accounts I can submit
Most contractors, freelancer and self-employed professionals will know somebody or know of somebody who has had a nightmare getting a mortgage.
With the huge number of permanent employees choosing to move to contracting and working through their own limited companies, lenders have had to alter their view of independent professionals.
It is now relatively easy to obtain a mortgage providing you use a competent specialist broker. Our preferred partner is CMME, the UK’s leading mortgage broker for independent professionals. CMME are eager to prove that you can easily secure the same ‘High Street’ mortgages as a permie – it’s simply a case of making use of the expertise and contacts that they have built up over many years.
CMME are directly regulated and authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority. They are pleased to be able to offer full advice whereas many institutions will now only provide you with an ‘information only’ service.
CMME can advise you on and arrange a suitable mortgage from a range of lenders and have access to exclusive rates meaning you have more time to focus on contracting.
