I have only been a company director for 1 year, can I get a mortgage?

There are some lenders who will consider your income once you have been self employed for a year. You will often require a projection from your accountant for the 2nd year which normally requires you being a few months into the 2nd year.

Other scenarios include where people buy in to a business that has been running for a longer timeframe or change from a sole trader to a limited company. Our advisors are experienced in this area and will be able to discuss your individual requirements to find the best mortgage deal.


I’m on a fixed rate mortgage, can I still look at securing the best remortgage deal?

Yes in short you can look at the best remortgage deal at any time. Most people look at securing the best remortgage deal 6 months before their current deal ends. There are lenders who will provide mortgage offers for up to 6 months. You secure the interest rate on application and so this is then secured for the offer period as well. Here at Willow Brook Mortgages we offer a rate check facility as well which means that if a better interest rate become available before you complete on the mortgage we can change across to this. This ensures that you get the best remortgage deal. If you do complete before your current deal comes to an end you might have a fee to leave your lender but this can be added on to the new mortgage if you chose to.
