Hassle-free mortgage advice for self-employed barristers

Wouldn’t you rather be spending your time supporting your clients than dealing with complicated paperwork and messing around trying to find a mortgage company that will give you a suitable deal?

A broker that specialises in securing the right offers for barristers will save you time, hassle, and money and that is exactly what Active does.

Choose Active as your mortgage council​

Every case you work on is unique and needs to be tailored to your clients individual requirements and circumstances. This is the same for the mortgage industry as each applicant has an individual set of circumstances and there is no blanket rule or deal for every barrister when it comes to mortgages.Having an open conversation with your client means that you understand their wants and needs. They leave more satisfied and hopefully tell their friends and recommend you to others.This premise works for us too as we understand the importance of dialogue to make sure what we offer is meeting your unique and individual needs.

How mortgages are arranged for barristers​

Mortgages can be tricky to get your head around and figure out; what documents you need, what you need to pay, who needs to sign what, and how much money you really need to borrow.While our specialist self-employed barrister mortgage advisers also require a lot of this information, they have expert knowledge of the mortgage market, enabling them to minimise the amount of time you spend on the phone and in meetings.

Maximising your chances of getting your mortgage application accepted

What you need to prepare to make your mortgage application depends on your circumstances. Your initial consultation with Active will ascertain those circumstances and what they mean for your mortgage application.

For any new mortgage application you are going to need to show proof of earnings, either as an individual or through your business accounts. Gather as much of this information as you can, particularly as a self-employed applicant as it is naturally harder to prove income when you are not receiving a direct salary.

A key area which affects all mortgage applicants is credit history. If your credit rating is not as strong or healthy as it could be, spend time doing everything you can to improve this before applying for a mortgage. This is an important indicator to mortgage providers that you are a good investment for them. The higher your credit the better rate and deal you are likely to receive.
