Contractor Mortgages for healthcare professionals

The term 'Contractor Mortgage' only refers to the method in which your income is calculated, as described below.

Many healthcare professionals are self-employed and are paid a daily rate. Lenders have simplified the way of calculating self-employed income instead of using the traditional way self-employed clients are typically assessed. The calculation can vary for each lender but typically it involves multiplying by 5 (for the weekly rate) and then by a certain number of weeks. This calculation then provides a gross income figure that will be used to evidence your earnings.

The lender may also have additional requirements, and these will also vary between each lender. You will likely need to at least provide information on your work history, how long you have been contracting and remaining length on your current contract

Using your current day rate, means your gross annual income for the year is used before any costs and tax are considered by your limited company. Typically, the latest years income is used so historic earnings are discounted which might be lower and you may not have a long history of contracting yet. If you have not got a long history of contracting yet, you do have options. There are lenders who can lend as soon as you start contracting providing you have previously worked in the same professional field.

Healthcare professionals often take on additional hours and shifts through locum work.

Locum work can be considered towards your mortgage application if you can prove to the lender that the income is regular and sustainable typically evidenced through a P60 or payslips. The lender will likely take an average over the last few months or even the last year. For full-time locum workers, a lender will typically want to see a work history of 12 months to evidence the stability of the income.

We will review your income and will use our vast knowledge and expertise to help find the right lender for your specific circumstances whether you are part-time or full-time locum worker.

Our expert brokers will look at all the options available to you and will discuss with you in depth what your preferences are. Once we have assessed your income in full, we may advise that it is better to calculate your income in the traditional method as there may be an advantage of allowing you to use a lender who has a preferential rate. We will ensure you fully understand every option available to you and will be on hand to answer any questions you may have.

We offer a free of charge initial mortgage review and a low service fee. We charge a fee of £100 upon application and then only charge our broker fee of £480 once we have secured you your formal mortgage offer.

Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up with your mortgage payments.
