Self employed mortgages: an overview

Many self employed applicants struggle to get the mortgage they need, often failing to meet the rigid, automated decision making processes of other lenders. At Ipswich Building Society we manually underwrite in-house where an underwriter is able to assess each case on its merits.

In addition to our full range of residential mortgage products, which are available to self employed applicants with more than two years’ accounts, we also have a self employed range available up to 90% LTV for those cases which require more flexibility.

Why choose us for your self employed clients?

  • Specialist & Professional products available up to 90% LTV
    1 years’ accounts/income verified
  • Contractor products available up to 90%
    For cases assessed under the Contractor Policy the Society will require a minimum 12 months contract history in the same line of work. If there is less than 3 months remaining on the existing contract the Society will require a minimum of 2 years' contract history.
    Day Rate x 5 days per week x 46 weeks P.A.
