IT Contractor Mortgages
IT Contractor looking for a mortgage? You’ve landed in the right place. Specialist contractor mortgage experts. Fast turn around and super friendly consultants.
The numbers of IT contractors out there is rapidly increasing – as professionals in the sector increasingly become aware of the benefits associated with contract positions. Companies are also consistently looking for contractors to supplement their workforce for set periods of time.
Despite this changing employment landscape within the IT sector, many IT contractors have the same issue when it comes to a time when they want to purchase a property – lenders will often perceive them as a higher risk and introduce a raft of measures which can be off-putting. This can happen despite contractors having a steady income and a host of other favourable assets going for their application.
What can I do to help me get an IT contractor mortgage?
Worry not – despite the fact that high-street lenders may traditionally make it more difficult for IT contractors to get a mortgage, there are several things you can do as an IT professional which will make your application more likely to be successful.
While there are a number of factors to consider when applying for a contractor mortgage, it’s also important to note there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach, and lenders should consider your application on its own merits. Getting professional advice from a mortgage broker or advisor will generally benefit you in the long run, with most offering a free consultation for their services.
There are a number of things you can do as an IT contractor which will improve your chances of getting a mortgage:
- Offer a larger deposit – borrowing less money from the lender reduces the risk on their behalf
- Maintain a good credit rating – as with any mortgage application it is important to ensure your credit rating is not affect by large credit card debt or missed payments.
- Avoid lengthy contracting breaks – whilst flexibility is a major benefit of contracting, having a major period of inactivity is not likely to be looked upon favourably.
- Show evidence of long-term contracts – ongoing and lengthy agreements with employers show stability and reliability for your application.
