    Contractor Mortgages 13th Feb 18 at 10:04 AM
    Hi All

    An opportunity has come up for a contracting job at work. My house is currently on the market so will be needing a new mortgage soon. A lot of mortgages require a couple of years worth of accounts to prove you're earning the necessary.

    Just weighing up my options on if I should go for the job. Any contractors out there have any experience of getting a mortgage so soon into it?

    I think you need to be a bit more clear as to your situation... What is your current position and what position are you looking to get too?

    You can get a mortgage as a contractor but the tests will be more stringent, best to go to a mortgage broker. (Make sure its an all market independent mortgage broker)
