Our mortgage advisors have a vast knowledge of self-employed lending criteria, making sure we get you the best mortgage product and lender for your circumstances.


Often, customers who call have had difficulty one way or another with their bank or high street mortgage lender. In any case, this can be down to varying reasons from your income structure, fluctuating net profit to they will not lend enough.

What our customers say

Common mortgage

Our free consultation typically lasts up to an hour or so. We can turn round an agreement in principle within 24 hours. A formal mortgage offer takes about three weeks on average.

It’s usually three payslips for an employee to prove income and the latest 2 years’ accounts for Self Employed. You will also need to produce proof of ID, address, and 3 months’ bank statements.

Once you have submitted at least one year’s accounts, you can get a mortgage. Most Lenders use your salary plus dividend to calculate the maximum mortgage, whereas others are known to go off your net profit.

If you have had credit problems, you can still get a mortgage, but you may be required to put down a higher deposit than usual, perhaps 15% of the property purchase price.

The minimum deposit when purchasing a house in Bristol with High Street Lenders is typically 5%. In any case, this can be higher if you have had previous credit problems.

It may be possible to get a second mortgage on your home for things like debt consolidation or Home Improvements. It may also be possible to take out a mortgage on a second property if you want to use it for yourself, a family member, a holiday home, or a Buy to Let.

An Agreement in Principle typically lasts for between 30 and 90 days, depending on the Lender used. If your Agreement in Principle expires, it can always get refreshed.

To avoid possible disappointment, we recommend to our customers you obtain an Agreement in Principle before you begin viewing properties in Bristol. At the very latest you should obtain one prior to making an offer to assist your bargaining position.

As your mortgage broker in Bristol, we carry out a Fact Find to establish your personal needs before we recommend the most suitable mortgage for you. A credit check gets required for an Agreement in Principle. Once you have provided all the relevant documentation and a valuation of the property has been undertaken, a formal mortgage offer can be issued.

Your free mortgage consultation in Bristol will last around one hour. We will then recommend a mortgage for you with no obligation for you to proceed and you can decide whether or not you wish to proceed with the mortgage.
