Representative Example:


A repayment mortgage of £120,000 payable over 28 years and 1 month initially on a fixed rate for 2 years at 1.99% and then on the lender current variable rate of 3.69% (variable) for the remaining 26 years and 1 month would require 24 monthly payments of £465.20 and 312 monthly payments of £565.39 and one final payment of £565.19.


The total amount payable would be £189,357.67 made up of the loan amount plus interest (£68,161.67), booking fee (£999), completion fee (£30) and valuation fee (£197).


In this example the overall cost for comparison is 3.7% APRC representative.


YOUR HOME MAY BE REPOSSESSED IF YOU DO NOT KEEP UP REPAYMENTS ON YOUR MORTGAGE.

Getting a first mortgage if you are self employed

Most lenders are risk averse, which means that they want to avoid financial risk at all costs. This means that they will ideally want you to be able to demonstrate a regular income before agreeing to a first time buyer mortgage, something the self employed may not be able to do.

However, if you can produce audited business accounts for at least two years or a letter of confirmation from your accountant, most lenders will be happy. Failing this, some lenders are still willing to accept self-certification mortgages for self employed first time buyers.


There are specific mortgage deals that may suit your financial situation in being a self employed first time buyer. An Offset mortgage deal, for example, will reduce your debt and the interest you pay in line with how much you have in your savings or current account.

This kind of mortgage deal for self employed first time buyers could have the right amount of flexibility for those with a variable income.

This is just one example of the kinds of mortgage deals that you can find in the competitive market we have in the UK. You should always remember that lenders main concerns will always revolve around whether you will be reliable with your repayments and that is likely to be the main factor in the assessment of whether or not they are willing to lend to you.

Take some time to look at the first time buyer mortgage deals for self employed people we have featured in our comparison tables. The best way of making sure you get the best deal on your mortgage is to judge different providers against each other.
