With over 5 million people in the UK self-employed, there is a real need for mortgage lenders to have solutions for them.
For some it can feel that mortgage lenders still fail to understand self-employed individuals compared to those that are in employment.
Whether you are a Sole Trader, Limited Liability Partnership or Limited Company, you can be viewed differently by a wide range of lenders.
In some cases, the same lender would treat the variety of setups very differently. One thing is for sure, all lenders will treat you, as a self-employed person, differently to someone in full time employment.

How long you have been trading
Your Company Set Up (i.e Sole Trader, Limited Liability
Partnership (LLP), Limited Company)
What income the lender will consider (ie Salary, Dividends, Net Profit Before Tax, Net Profit After Tax)
