Self Employed Mortgage Scenarios

  • Are you a company owner, director, sole trader or partner and wanting Mortgage Advice in Hull?
  • Have you been turned away by your bank?
  • Have you got a fluctuating net profit?
  • Only been trading for one year?
  • Bank won’t lend you enough?
  • Do you get paid a combination of salary and dividends or leave your net profit in your business?
  • Self Employed and got an unusual situation?
  • Are you Self Employed and wanting help getting a mortgage?


Traditionally, banks are not always very receptive when approached by their Self Employed customers for mortgages. No matter how many years you have been banking with them or how much money you pay into your account on a regular basis, if their computerized lending criteria do not like your financial information, they will just say no.


Self Employed Customers & Bank Mortgage Advice

Almost all of the high street mortgage lenders use their in-house credit scoring policies when granting mortgages, these are based on that lenders own experience on previous mortgage repayment statistics and repossession information and individual cases that do not fit these tight criteria are not investigated further. This will save the bank or building society time and money.


In the past, it is possible that mortgage lenders have had more cases of arrears with Self Employed applicants than employed ones but it is fair to say that employed applicants have to jump through far fewer “hoops” to get approved for a mortgage.


Many high street banks have very strict criteria and must-see increasing net profit with a minimum of three years accounts or some take an average over three years.

Having Mortgage Problems?

Often, clients who call have had difficulty one way or another with their bank or other high street mortgage lender due to many reasons:


  1. Bank won’t lend enough
  2. Failed banks criteria
  3. Credit score
  4. Fluctuating net profit
  5. Pay structure
  6. Personal situation


It is important that you don’t keep trying lots of other lenders without being 100% sure of their strict lending criteria because this will have a negative impact on your credit score. Also, it may well harm your chances of getting a mortgage altogether.

What our customers say

Common mortgage

Your free mortgage consultation in Hull will last around one hour. We will then recommend a mortgage for you with no obligation for you to proceed and you can decide whether or not you wish to proceed with the mortgage.

As your Mortgage Broker in Hull, we carry out a Fact Find to establish your personal needs before we recommend the most suitable mortgage for you. A credit check is then required for an agreement in principle. Once you have provided all the relevant documentation and a valuation of the property has been undertaken, a formal mortgage offer can be issued.

To avoid possible disappointment, we recommend you obtain an agreement in principle before you begin viewing properties in Hull. At the very latest you should obtain one prior to making an offer to assist your bargaining position.

An agreement in principle typically lasts for between 30 and 90 days depending on the lender used. If your agreement in principle expires it can always be refreshed.

There may be a chance to obtain a second mortgage on your home for things like debt consolidation or Home Improvements. There may also be a possibility for you to take out a mortgage on a second property if you’re wanting to use it for yourself, a family member, a holiday home or a Buy to Let.

The minimum deposit when purchasing a house in Hull with high street lenders is typically 5%. This can be higher if you have had previous credit problems.

If you have had credit problems you can still get a mortgage in Hull, however, you may be required to put down a higher deposit than usual, perhaps 15% of the property purchase price.

Once you have submitted at least one year’s accounts, you are able to get a mortgage. Most lenders use your salary plus dividend to calculate the maximum mortgage you can borrow in Hull, whereas others are known to go off your net profit.

It’s usually three payslips for an employee to prove income and the latest 2 years’ accounts for Self Employed applicants. You will also need to produce proof of ID, address and 3 months’ bank statements.

Your free consultation in Hull will likely last up to an hour or so. We can turn round an agreement in principle within 24 hours. A formal mortgage offer takes about three weeks on average.
