If you’re a contractor or a freelancer looking for a mortgage, it’s natural to wonder whether the process will be difficult and whether self-employment will impact the amount that you can borrow.
The questions on most new (or even experienced) contractors and freelancer’s minds when it comes to mortgages are:
- What size mortgage can I get as an independent professional?
- How much will the repayments be?
- Is it difficult to get a mortgage as an independent professional?
- Can I even get a mortgage? I don’t have years of accounts I can submit
With the huge number of permanent employees choosing to move to contracting and working through their own limited companies, lenders have had to alter their view of independent professionals.

How to find a mortgage as a contractor
It is now relatively easy to obtain a mortgage providing you use a competent specialist broker. Our preferred partner is CMME, the UK's leading mortgage broker for independent professionals. CMME is eager to prove that you can easily secure the same 'High Street' mortgages as a permanent employee - it's simply a case of making use of the expertise and contacts that they have built up over many years.
CMME is directly regulated and authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority. They are pleased to be able to offer full advice whereas many institutions will now only provide you with an 'information only' service.
CMME can advise you on and arrange a suitable mortgage from a range of lenders and have access to exclusive rates meaning you have more time to focus on contracting.
If you are looking to take that first step on the ladder, or to remortgage an existing property, then CMME will advise and find a solution to suit your individual needs.
Whether you’re looking to find out the best rates available or require help calculating how much you could borrow, call 01489 555 080 or email CMME on firstname.lastname@example.org.
