What issues could I face when applying for a mortgage as a junior doctor?
If you are a junior doctor undergoing or just finishing training, the early years of your medical career are likely to be based on fixed-term contracts rather than permanent roles. This is great for gaining the experience you need to succeed, but it can make getting a mortgage more difficult. This is because mortgage lenders tend to prefer potential borrowers with what they see as a stable, long lasting employment record. In order to get a mortgage it can be a good idea to approach mortgage lenders who understand the unique nature of junior doctors’ work and lifestyle.
Mortgages for junior locum doctors
Locum work is very common among junior doctors, but can cause issues when it comes to getting a mortgage. This is because as a locum you will not have a permanent employment contract and this can be a red flag to mortgage lenders who may see you as a greater lending risk.
This can be especially true if you are a new locum as you will not be in a position to provide several years’ worth of accounts to prove your past income and job stability. Fortunately, specialist mortgage providers for junior doctors can help you to get a mortgage that takes your circumstances into account.
Proving your income as a junior doctor
Looking for a mortgage as a junior doctor can prove more complicated than you might expect. On the one hand, you have a professional job and may well have more capital than the average buyer at your disposal, but on the other hand, factors such as fixed term contracts, band earnings and locum work can all be an issue when it comes to demonstrating your income.
Junior doctors may have to move around frequently for various rotations or training courses, leaving them with multiple sources of income and frequent changes in their employment terms. Locums can find it hard to demonstrate consistent income and they can sometimes be considered freelance or self-employed by mortgage lenders unfamiliar with their exact role.
As a junior doctor you may be keen to buy a higher end property that reflects your true earning potential. A specialist mortgage provider can help you get a mortgage based on your specific requirements.
How are mortgages for junior doctors assessed?

There are various specialist firms that may be able to help secure a better deal on mortgages for junior doctors.
