The assessment criteria for self-employed professionals varies greatly from lender to lender in the UK property finance market. Generally speaking, you need to provide two years of accounts to prove your income and be approved for a self-employed mortgage. However, this is not always the case. Our brokers fully understand the complexities of underwriting a mortgage for a self-employed client and can help negotiate the right deal for you.
We work with a broad spectrum of self-employed clients; from directors of well-established limited companies, through to professionals commencing their freelance careers.
Our experienced advisers take the time to develop a deep understanding of the financial position of our self-employed property finance applicants. They often work alongside our clients’ accountants to ensure that all necessary financial information is accurate and complete. This ensures swift and decisive approvals from our network of self-employed mortgage lenders and keeps things moving for our clients.
