    Mortgage while on maternity 15th Apr 18 at 8:25 PM
    Hi guys

    Quick one.

    Anyone know any lenders that give mortgages based on your salary when you'll return to work when you're one maternity leave.

    Wife goes back full time in October but is now on statutory (which we are just managing on)

    With the new addition I'm very keen on moving sooner rather than later to be closer to family. Trouble is where we live was a lot cheaper.

    In case it matters we have about 30k equity owe 90k and the house we like is 160k so a good bit more.

    Are there any lenders that will.accept us based on what she will.earn in the future if we get cover8ng letters with start dates etc for her leave ending?

    All the best

    Most will work off what her income will be when she returns, but they will want a letter from the employer confirming her income when she returns and when she will return.
