Manchester Mortgages Brokers for the Self Employed
At Search Mortgage Solutions, Manchester’s leading specialist self-employed mortgage broker, we have very many years of experience of how different lenders assess the applications of self-employed mortgage applicants. Finding the best self-employed mortgage available to suit your specific needs and circumstances is our particular speciality.
For people employed on a PAYE basis the applicant’s income is clearly defined and there is very little risk to the lender. On the other hand, when assessing the income of self-employed or limited company directors, the lenders are very thorough to ensure that their exposure to risk is minimised. The intensity and method of the assessment varies enormously between lenders so the mortgage broker has to have an extensive knowledge of the most receptive lenders, particularly if the financial information is only marginally good enough.
Lenders will generally consider you as self-employed if you own more than 20% to 25% of a business which provides your main income. If this applies to you, regardless of what you are earning, and you are self-employed, a freelancer, a contractor, a sole trader, or a partner, we are ready to help you proceed to a mortgage to suit your particular circumstances.
