This is a growing segment, with over 1.8m self-employed contractors in the market. Our criteria means we could help you to cater for these clients.

Our criteria

We will assess self-employed contractors using their daily contract rate x 5 days x 48 weeks. Where there are gaps in the employment history, income will be calculated pro rata (e.g. 8 week gap: income= 5 days x 40 weeks). When completing the application on our eMortgages system, you will need to enter your client's daily rate x 5 x 48 weeks as employed income rather than self-employed income.

Your clients must meet the following criteria:

  • minimum of 2 years' experience in their chosen profession
  • minimum of 6 months contract history
  • minimum income (using daily rate) of £50,000
  • minimum 1 months remaining on current contract

Your clients must provide the following

  • a CV to confirm 2 years' experience
  • copy of previous contract(s) (covering a minimum of 1 year)
  • latest month's personal or business bank statements
  • copy of current contract
