Our Simple Guide to Self Employed Mortgages
Self employed mortgages otherwise known as ‘self certification mortgages’, refer to a loan where the borrower certifies their own income not the lender. These self employed mortgages meant that previously borrowers didn’t need to provide any evidence of income and a declaration of earnings was enough. However these loans have since been removed from the market as lenders have been forced to become more careful with their assessments and how much they loan out.
The Difficulty with Securing Mortgages for Self Employed People
It’s true that in the current mortgage climate lots of people are having difficulties in obtaining a mortgage, especially if you are after mortgages for the self employed. For many self employed people sourcing a loan has became more difficult with the removal of the self-certification loan system following the FCA changes. The majority of lenders now require three years trading accounts for example, which can make things very difficult.
