Mortgages for Contractors

Many people work as contractors these days. Tradespeople, IT professionals, healthcare workers and consultants, among others, often fall into this category, for instance. Obtaining a mortgage when you are a contractor isn’t always as straightforward as it should be, however.

This is where our specialist skills as experienced mortgage brokers can make such a difference. We deal with people with all sorts of employment statuses – including contractors – and more complex income arrangements to secure suitable mortgages.

What Qualifies you as a Contractor for Mortgage Applications?

For the purposes of most mortgage applications, contractors are deemed to be self-employed people who offer services to one or more larger organisations. Known as off-payroll working, contractors in the UK typically have an IR35 tax status with HMRC. However, it often gets more complex if you are working as a contractor for a foreign firm or working overseas.

Whatever your particular circumstances might be as a contractor, we are on hand to offer our expertise in the mortgage market today. This can be especially useful among contractors who may find it difficult to explain their wider financial circumstances to a high street mortgage provider that is unused to dealing with anything other than standard applications.

Does working as a contractor affect mortgage applications?

Typically, mortgage lenders will want to know all about your income if you are applying for a mortgage with them. Even if you have a job and are employed part-time, they will want to know if you also work as a self-employed contractor. Therefore, seeking a lender which has a track record of providing mortgages to people who work as contractors can be beneficial and something we’ll help you with.

Note that if you are employed by a contracting firm and on the payroll, you are not a contractor in the eyes of mortgage lenders. We will still be able to help you secure a great mortgage deal, however.
