More than 20% of mortgage applications from self employed applicants are rejected, one in four have been turned down more than four times
As an experienced Mortgage broker, we have dealt with countless self employed applications and knows the common pit falls where going it alone can extend and even completely halt the process. Using a mortgage broker takes the guess work and heart ache out of the process as a self-employed applicant.
There are nearly 5m self employed and many are looking for a mortgage either for a new purchase or to capitalise on the lower rates available in todays competitive market. The main reasons for rejection of applications are:
- Irregular Income
- Insufficient Income
- Insufficient Proof of Current and Future Income
Take the guess work out of your mortgage application and get it done right
The way people live and work has evolved hugely in the past decade and many lenders have not kept pace with this from a proposition as well as underwriting perspective. If you don’t know what lenders to approach and what needs to be provided to them then you will likely be declined.
