    Q Can you get a mortgage if you are self employed?

    When it comes to self employed applicants, there are different ways in which the banks will calculate how much you can borrow. It’s important to say here, and is probably why most self employed professionals fear that they will not be able to get a mortgage, banks have different ways in which they assess your income and their criteria for self employed mortgages goes a bit further than just income. They will want to know about your business in terms of its performance, any debts that it has, how long it has been trading, and which sector you operate in.

    Q How do I pay off my Help 2 Buy Loan?

    The Help to Buy loan is designed to help buyers get on the property ladder using a 5% deposit and a 20% Government loan. The key word being “loan”. Whilst the new Help to Buy rules which came in to force in 2021 have changed who qualifies for the Government loan, the terms in which the loan has to be repaid remain the same.

    During the first 5 years of the loan you pay no capital or interest back on the borrowed money. This is one of the reasons why it is a popular method of purchasing a new build property. However, after 5 years, things change and this is where you have to decide what the best option is for you.

    Interest is charged on the money you initially borrowed at the start of year 6. During the first 5 years you have paid a £1 monthly management fee. This continues until the loan is repaid in full. The interest that is charged starts at 1.75%, based on the initial loan amount. The interest rate will rise in April each year based on the rate of inflation at the time (according to the Consumer Price Index), plus 2%. If the rate of inflation is 0% or less, the interest rate will rise by 2%.
