    Foreign Currency Mortgage advice needed! 13th Jul 18 at 1:09 PM

    We are looking to move home and take out a new larger mortgage. We are encountering a couple of issues:

    My husband is employed in the Middle East and is paid is USD.

    I am self employed and only started last September so donít have a full set of accounts.

    Has anyone been in a similar set of circumstances and managed to find a mortgage? We have found one that that will accept the dollars but provide no recognition for my income also. Ideally we need both!

    Can you tell a bit more about your business. What is it exactly you are doing? EG. IT contracting or selling something etc.
    What were do doing before you have started the business? Something simillar to your current ocupasion or something totally different?
    Eg gonbe from employed to self employed Programmer or gone from being a builder in to being a baker?
