Yes, you can get a mortgage with only one year of accounts! However, you’ll have fewer options available to you compared to someone with three or more years of accounts. Most mainstream lenders and big banks will probably turn you down, but there are specialist lenders who’ll be willing to consider your application.
There’s more than five million people in the UK who work for themselves – freelancers, contractors, company directors and sole traders. And loads of them have been told they can’t get a mortgage until they have three years’ worth of accounts proving their income. It’s not fair because it’s definitely possible, they just need the right advice!
Mortgage lenders have a responsibility to make sure they’re lending to people who can pay the money back. That means you need to give proof that you can afford your monthly repayments. If you only have one year’s accounts so far, lenders might ask to see extra documentation to prove your income. For example; projections for income and information on your employment history or industry experience.
Working with a specialist mortgage broker makes all the difference. That’s where we come in! Our Mortgage Experts have plenty of experience getting mortgages for people like you, and will make your application look as good as possible to lenders.
Getting a mortgage when you’re self-employed can be difficult. Mortgage lenders tend to prefer people in full-time employment because it’s easier for them to understand their income. But don't let anyone tell you that a self-employed mortgage isn't possible. Here's what you need to know.
We get how it feels when you’re refused a mortgage. We’ve been there. Haysto exists because the mortgage world is broken.
