    Hi,
    Sorry another house question?:rolleyes:
    Does anybody have any experience of self certified mortgages i have tried looking it up and am confused to say the least :confused: but i feel this is may be my only option ?

    I am self employed and my books dont make things look great :eek: .
    Good for the tax bill but not great for a mortgage ! ;)

    Ive got a self certified mortgage , it works for me , and i know of friends who have them too , i got mine thru my financal advisor , he works wonders for me . I went into the bank the other day thou and they told me that they do them too , not heard anything back mind but i do need to pop into se them some time soon .

    My finacal advisor did all the work for me thou and the best of it is i didnt have to pay him anything as the companys he deals with pay him .

    Good luck im sure it will all work out for you x

    Even within the self cert market there are variables as to how much information they need. Some still want to see some evidence of income, others dont want to see anything except your signature saying you can afford it. Shop around until you find one that suits you, most lenders have a self cert these days. You will pay a sightly higher interest rate that a normal lender, but there are some good fixed rate mortgages around at the mo, with interest rates rising i think they are a good option! The internet is probably the best place to start your research. Also, make sure you go to an independent mortgage advisor (but they still have their favourites!).

    As my present mortgage is less than 5% of the value of my house I thought I would approach my building society for an increase to pay the balance on the house in Portugal. Even with the increase it would only be 25%. As I have just finished my first year as a CDC my accounts have yet to be done. What about this then, I am a fully qualified accountant but the B/S wont accept my accounts if they are prepared by me. WTF Also Nationwide dont do self certified mortgages.

    Sorry to hear that Pam souns like you should shop around cant believe they wouldn't except your accounts i mean if there was a discrepancy surely you would be the only one to suffer ?? Especially with all that equity in your house, what a load of jobsworths !!!!!!!!

    I think you should get a second opinion tatty, like i said, there are some that take income into account, and some that dont. If you have a substantial deposit they are more likely to lend, eg 25% of the value of the property or more. What % is your deposit??

    Property value £160'000 we have £90'000 we need a mortgage of £70'000 so that just means increasing our current mortgage by £37'000 !!!!

    I can afford the repayments but i am self employed therefore untouchable!
    Just spoke to my mortgage provider and they want to see my books which we have established are crap and i dont see the problem as all i want to do is double my current mortgage and double the payment term !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Sorry head is spinning feel washed out !
    All ideas greatly appreciated xxxxxxxxxxx

    With that size of deposit you should be able to get a self cert mortgage i think! See another advisor! I went to the mortgage shop;

    Hi Tatty
    Sorry things didnt work out as planned , but these things arent always straight forward are they .
    I would get a second opinion thou . maybe in a few weeks when ur over this blow .

    I went to my bank today to see if they could help lower my mortgage payments , they said they couldnt help when they went thru my account . they wasted my time basically .

    I will however be looking on these links and trying to find a better deal !

    Thanks for starting this thread xxx
