We Can Help with Your Tricky Mortgage Applications!Samer Belal
Getting approved for a mortgage these days is tougher than it used to be, which is why those who don’t naturally meet the qualifying criteria can be left feeling like they’ve got no chance of buying their dream home. However, at REMOUK, we’re here to tell you that you shouldn’t assume that mortgage lenders will not consider your application just because your circumstances aren’t perfect.
With this in mind, we’ve put together this mini guide to situations where people might feel that their mortgage application would be seen as ‘tricky’. Listed below are a number of tricky application scenarios we might be able to help you with.
You’re on a Temporary Contract
Permanent P.A.Y.E. employment is the preferred state of affairs for most mortgage lenders, but that’s not to say that others aren’t considered. Whether you’re self-employed or on a temporary contract, your mortgage application has a good chance of being approved if you can prove that you’ve been in your current line of work for at least a year. If you are able to prove that you’ve had consistent employment without any prolonged ‘out of work’ periods, you stand a good chance of a positive outcome.
You Have a Lower Credit Score Than You Expected
Of course, having a good credit score is going to help your application, that’s for sure, but if yours is lower than you expected it to be, you shouldn’t automatically assume that you’re going to be refused a mortgage by the lender. Depending on which lender you use, they will often take other factors like your current income and your ability to make your monthly repayments into account.
You Have a Small Deposit
Speaking of deposits, having a small deposit is not necessarily the stumbling blockas you may think it would. There are lots of potential options for you to consider. Amongst these options are government directives like Help to Buy and Shared Ownership, as well as 95% guarantee and guarantor mortgages. So, having a small deposit doesn’t necessarily preclude you from homeownership.
