For example, some mortgages for teachers can be offered with flexible criteria and specialist underwriting to take into account the variable income or temporary contracts of trainee or supply teachers.

Teaching staff quite often work under non-standard contracts.

However many mortgage lenders will take this into account when considering you for a mortgage.
