Compare Mortgages for Contract Workers
If you have a job which requires you to work on a contract rather than as a permanent member of staff, you may find that getting a mortgage is more troublesome than it might be for individuals in with a more conventional job set-up.
As a contract worker, you may be viewed by potential mortgage lenders as not able to offer evidence of an income that’s certain every month. However, with contract working becoming increasingly prevalent, many mortgage providers are beginning to ease their restrictions on lending to contract workers.
Getting a mortgage as a contract worker
When you apply for a mortgage deal as a contract worker the lender you approach will consider several factors, one of which is the nature of your work. There are many different types of contract work nowadays, including:
- Independently employed contractors with a long career history – if you can demonstrate at least one or two years’ worth of accounts and employment records, you may find that mortgage providers are more willing to lend to you on the terms you want.
- People who are new to contract work and may have a shorter career history - if you are new to contract work and don’t have at least 12 months’ work history to show, don’t despair as some mortgage providers will lend to you despite this.
- Workers on a short term contract, fixed term contract or zero hours contract – If you have got a track record of at least one years’ income to your name in this kind of contract, you could find that it is possible for certain lenders to consider an application, providing that the income is sustainable and work is likely to continue to come in.
- Workers on contract with an umbrella company – if you have been working in this way for at least a year or have had your contract renewed, this will help suggest to potential mortgage lenders that you have a stable employment record
- Individuals in professional roles where contract work is common such as accountancy or engineering – being in a chartered or regulated profession may help your mortgage application as a contract worker.
