Self Employed

Wondering what your options are if you’re self employed and trying to get on the property ladder? At Mortgage Synergy, we make mortgages possible for those who don’t work a traditional 9-5 job.

Getting a mortgage if you’re self employed

There isn’t a specific product labelled ‘Self Employed Mortgages’. Your mortgage will be the same as a full-time applicant employed via a company. The difference? You may need to provide more evidence of income. 

Luckily for you, there are specialist lenders on the UK market who understand the complexities of self employment. These lenders arrange mortgages especially for people working for themselves.

How much you’re allowed to borrow for a mortgage typically depends on your annual salary. And while many high street banks and mainstream lenders prefer the security of a stable income, you may even earn more in a year than a full-time employee. 

However, your monthly earnings are more likely to fluctuate. Ultimately, as long as you’re able to prove your earnings are sustainable, you’ve got the green light for a mortgage.
