Self Employed Mortgages

We understand there’s a little bit more legwork required to get a mortgage when you’re self employed, which is why we’re on hand to make sue you don’t waste time with the wrong products.

If you’re self-employed, you may be wondering if you’re able to get a mortgage. The good news is you are. Self-employed mortgages are available, they’re just not as straightforward as if you have a typical salary.

Proving What You Can Afford

The main stumbling block for self-employed mortgages is being able to supply proof of affordability.

Being self-employed, you may find your income differs month-on-month. In a lenders eyes, this could be an issue when determining whether you’re able to make consistent mortgage repayments.

Lenders typically want you to have been trading for 2-3 years, and look for 2 years accounts as proof of sustained income and with most other mortgages. These accounts will determine what a lender will let you borrow.

  • If you are a limited company, lenders may look at dividends and salary. They may also look at the company’s net profit.
  • For sole traders and partnerships, lenders will look at net profit as the means for income.

You may find demonstrating sufficient net profit difficult, especially if an accountant has put measures in place to make your accounts tax efficient.

Self-Employed Mortgage Products

Many self-employed applicants have access to similar rates to employed applicants. The products are often similar, but it is the affordability that is the differentiating factor. If you’re self-employed, you’re not limited by the number of products available.

How Can I Improve My Chances of Getting A Self-Employed Mortgage?

  • Make sure you have complete, up to date records of all your business paperwork.
  • Complete a SA302 self-assessment
  • Make use of an independent mortgage broker

Independent mortgage brokers are often well versed in dealing with self-employed mortgage applications. They often have access to a number of lenders and will know where to place your application to give the best chance of being accepted.
Mortgage brokers have the benefit of taking the leg work out of searching an often large number of lenders. You’re also more likely to get a cheaper mortgage deal and not waste time with lenders that may not approve your application.

Cannot recommend Regal Finance enough! Matthew and Kirsti were amazing and completely took the stress out of the process. They were always available to answer questions and guide us through everything. I found they had access to a wider range of products than other advisors I had used in the past. I will be recommending Regal Finance Group to everyone I know!

Matthew and his team have gone above and beyond to help us with our mortgage. As first time buyers we decided to seek advice from a mortgage advisor. After having an offer accepted on a house we needed some support with the mortgage fairly quickly and Matthew managed to fit us in out of usual hours to suit us. We had a very detailed call with him and all our questions were answered. From this point onwards Kirsti managed our application and the whole process was fast and effortless as they managed everything. We made the best decision using Regal finance. If you choose to go with Regal you’ll be in good hands.

I recently had the pleasure of working with Rick to secure a mortgage for my new home and a buy-to-let mortgage for my existing property. Rick's assistance was truly invaluable throughout the entire process. Rick effortlessly guided me through both processes, making sure every detail was covered. His commitment to assist and his availability and willingness to answer my questions, no matter how small was exemplary. Rick's expertise in mortgages was impressive. He made a complex process seem straightforward. I wholeheartedly recommend Rick as a mortgage broker. He is not only skilled but also genuinely cares about his clients' success.
I did my due dilligence looking at various brokers and was pleased to have received excellent help and direction from the Regal Finance Group. From the lead advisor to the administration team we were kept updated and communication was steady. Our situation was not an easy one for the team but they persevered and assisted us well.

Particulalry during the current turbulent market we really appreciated how calm they made us feel by presenting our options clearly and answering all of our questions. We'd highly recommend them, they have really taken the stress out of mortages!
