We are proud to state that we have been helping people who work for themselves to acquire mortgages in Exeter and Devon over many years, including the self-employed, contractors and company directors. It’s not easy to take that step from working for someone else into forming and successfully building your own company. It takes courage, careful planning and sometimes a bit of luck to succeed.
So it doesn’t seem fair if your next step is to buy a property to live in and you experience a perceived reluctance by mortgage lenders to grant a property loan. This is is a totally inaccurate perception as mortgage lenders are more than happy to grant mortgages to anyone, whether employed or working for themselves, providing they meet lending criteria.
