Mortgage for Professionals

Professional mortgage products are aimed at borrowers in certain professional employment. Lenders use their own affordability calculations to assess how much they will lend; some offer enhanced calculations and favourable rates specifically to professionals. Lenders assess each application individually rather than sticking to a rigid formula, therefore mortgages for professionals are based on each applicants’ personal circumstances. 

Searching for the perfect mortgage that suits your personal circumstances, if you’re a professional, can be difficult. You may find a better deal if you shop around, and ultimately save a lot of money. If you are a professional and searching for a mortgage, Friends Capital will review your personal circumstances and then search the entire market to ensure you get the best mortgage deal possible. We will then deal with all the paperwork, submit your mortgage application, liaise with your mortgage lender and solicitor, and ensure that your mortgage application is completed as quickly as possible. We can:  

  • Save you money on your mortgage deal 
  • Offer a free consultation 
  • Offer unbiased financial advice 
  • Save you time in your mortgage application 
  • Give you a dedicated account manager who is available to you through the process

What are the Advantages of a Professional Mortgage?

Many lenders will offer you a better mortgage deal if you work in certain professions because they are often viewed as lower risk.  Your qualifications, predictable career progression, and reliable income makes you a much safer applicant, statistically, than other applicants. Therefore, some lenders choose to offer better deals to attract more of these types of borrowers. Mortgages for professionals can result in: 

  • Lower Deposit Needed – Many lenders accept lower mortgage deposits from professionals
  • Better Rates and Lower Fees – A professional may qualify for a reduced mortgage rate and a product fee reduction
  • Enhanced Income Multiples – Typically, the maximum a standard borrower could obtain is 5x salary. Lenders often allow professionals an increased mortgage amount for borrowers on higher incomes.
  • Enhanced Over Payment Facility – Many lenders offer professionals flexibility to overpay on their mortgage as and when without penalty.
  • Repayment Holidays – Many professional mortgages provide the facility to make pre-arranged payment holidays
  • Increased Chance of a Self-employed Mortgage – If you’re a self-employed professional, some lenders exist that offer mortgages to professionals with just 1 year’s accounts, even if you’ve had some adverse credit.
