How Much Can You Borrow from a mortgage Lender?

With Residential mortgages the amount you can borrow will be dependent on your income, commitments and term of the mortgage. To qualify for a mortgage, you will need to prove that you can make regular payments over an extended period.

With Self employed borrowers, you can no longer get self certification mortgages. Instead to prove your self employed income most Lenders generally require 2 years evidence of self employment income. If you have only been trading for 1 year, some lenders will be happy for you to provide just this year, they may ask a projection of your future income.

To find out exactly how much you can borrow as a self employed, get in contact with a mortgage adviser. They will be able to look at your circumstances, check mortgage affordability, compare mortgages and get an agreement in principle.
