Mortgages for IT Contractors

Are you an IT contractor?

Some mortgage lenders recognise that you choose to work this way as it is more financially rewarding than being a ‘permie’ – and they don’t penalise you for being self-employed or for working on a short-term contract provided you can show that you have moved from one contract to another without too many long breaks. Just two years of consistent work, regardless of how many contracts there have been during that period can make you eligible to apply for a mortgage. You will need a deposit, normally at least 5%.

There is also another approach that works for many self-employed contractors. There are both high street and specialist lenders who will accept the latest set of accounts only. So if you have submitted first year accounts, or have been self-employed for many years, but have only recently posted a decent profit, you can apply for a mortgage using the latest years figures. This will increase your borrowing power if the profits declared have increased.

This includes first time buyers, next time buyers and remortgage deals.
